Recently many food bloggers have been taking part in the live below the line challenge, attempting to feed themselves and their families for £1 a day per person for 5 days in order to raise awareness of the millions of people around the world who do live in poverty.
Luckily I’ve never had to cope with real hardship. I’m not extravagant and I don’t spend a lot of money on food, but neither do I scrimp and save. If I fancy splashing out on expensive ingredients for dinner, I do, but only occasionally and most of the food I feature here is everyday food.
When it comes to cakes, they can be expensive to buy and it is definitely a lot more economical to make a cake than to buy one.
