Series 1: 6. Baking on a Budget

Nadiya Hussain turns her attention to baking on a budget. Baking spectacular treats can be pricey, and after a strained 2020, many of us are looking for ways to tighten the purse strings. Nadiya believes you can create something delicious without breaking the bank or compromising on flavour - one of her golden rules is never throw anything away, so her potato rosti quiche uses leftover ingredients that many of us having knocking around in the fridge to create a scrumptious family meal on a shoestring. Baking bread always offers value for money, and Nadiya’s fluffy onion pretzels are the ultimate satisfying cheap snack. Next, Nadiya’s rhubarb and custard kisses turn a few store-cupboard staples into beautiful little biscuits that are pretty enough for a special occasion. Finally, Nadiya creates her signature chocolate fondant, rich, indulgent, and rustled up for a fraction of the price you would pay in a restaurant.

And master baker Richard Bertinet shares his recipe for frugal but irresistible cinnamon buns.
