I learned the art of baking on a budget at a very young age. In my family, as long as we had flour, butter, sugar and eggs on hand, we were always baking. It was then that I found that baking can be fun and delicious even if you’re on a limited budget. You will need to purchase measuring spoons, measuring cups, a whisk, a sturdy heatproof rubber spatula or spoon, and a large mixing bowl. You don’t always need to buy top-of-the-line (Epi’s reviews often offer budget picks for these items), but quality pans are a sensible investment.
