Home Bargains launches £20 box with ingredients and equipment to bake treats

During lockdown, it seems like everyone is baking something.

But if you don’t have the ingredients, equipment or the skills to create the perfect banana bread, Home Bargains is here to help.

The discount store has launched a baking essentials box, giving you everything you need to make three cakes, scones and some pastry. The kit includes a cake tin, spatula, cutters and cupcake cases too.

The whole thing costs £20.99, including delivery, and everything comes from their Jane Asher baking range.

A post on their website says: ‘Home Bargains understands the importance of our customers getting essential food items during this unprecedented time.

‘We have carefully selected some of our best selling products to create this Jane Asher Baking Box; ideal for those who may be struggling to get certain items, are self-isolating or want to send a care package to a loved one.

‘Baking offers you the chance to get creative and with easy to follow guides, you don’t have to be a top chef to make some tasty treats. We have selected mixes that don’t require the use of flour, as we know how much of a struggle it is to buy at this time.’

The box includes:

  • Vanilla Sponge Mix
  • Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix
  • Lemon Cake Mix
  • Scone Mix
  • Pastry Mix
  • Round Pastry Cutter 3 Pack
  • Vanilla Frosting
  • Chocolate Frosting
  • Sultanas 500g
  • Spatula Bamboo Handle
  • Round Loose Bake Cake Tin
  • Cake Cases (100 Pack)

You will need to add eggs, oil, butter and milk to the cake mixes so stock up before your box arrives.

You can buy the baking box on the Home Bargains website.
