As we're all struggling and looking for recipes we can use with what's in the cupboards I wonder is anyone following Jack Monroe on Twitter (the tin can cookbook woman). She is doing #JackMonroesLockdownLarder where people can send her details of what they have and she will come up with a meal for them and she'll also post everything to her website. Started today and I've seen some great recipes.

(also I believe Ch4 have got Jamie Oliver doing something starting tomorrow about cheap meals with cupboard foods)

Has anyone else seen any good sites/accounts etc?

A really useful thread. I would like to add a note to anyone who spots the 'no yeast dinner rolls' doing the rounds at the moment. (it uses mayo) Please don't use your precious ingredients - I've tried the recipe and it's not good. More like biscuits, too salty and nothing like the bread roll picture that accompanies it. I have got a reliable bread recipe that I will dig out and add here tomorrow using plain flour. (Self raising is like gold dust atm)

That's great. I've seen a few bread recipes knocking about but haven't needed to try any yet.

Caz2 Crazy eh? The UK population has turned into bakers. ('tween you and me, if they don't bake bread regularly, the results will be more like weapons 😆 )

Plain flour bread recipe that is edible. I'm sharing this one because there's a chance a few of us still have stock of Plain Flour from pancake day.

500 g plain flour (reg cake flour not bread or wholewheat / wholegrain)

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

310 ml milk

Heat the oven to 190°C Fan (210C (regular) / 375°F / GM 6. Place a baking stone or heavy baking sheet in the oven to heat.

Mix the dry ingredients. Stir in the milk, and bring the dough together by stirring the ingredients until the milk is mixed with flour and forms a dough. It's easiest to do this with your hands rather than a wooden spoon.

Turn the dough out onto your work surface and knead briefly until the dough has a uniform consistency.

Shape the dough into a round disc about an inch to an inch and a half (about 3cm) thick and score the top. This is important! Don't make a round ball of dough as it won't cook in the middle.

Bake on the hot stone or baking sheet at for about 35 minutes until pale brown and sounding hollow when tapped on the bottom.

Important! Cannot stress enough that the dough needs to be a flat pancake - not more than 1.5" (3cm) deep when it goes into the oven, or it will not cook properly in the middle.
