No egg, baking powder or yeast at home now. But I do have some flour (both plain and self raising) and long life milk. Can I still able to make something out of it?

Jamie Oliver has a recipe for pizza which is just SR flour, water and salt. It's yum!

Flatbreads. Do you have any plain yoghurt? Jamie Oliver has a great recipe for flatbread.

You want to come to this thread! What else do you have in the cupboard? Do you fancy sweet or savoury?

Have you got a tin of beans? The aquafaba(the liquid) is a good egg replacement. I think it's a tablespoon per egg but check

I think I remember reading about using vinegar in place of eggs. You could make Yorkshire puddings or pancakes if you have vinegar. Although you’ll have to check out the recipe.

Someone i know made bread using mayonnaise
1 cup of self raising flour, half a cup of milk & tablespoons of mayonnaise’s just mix it all up and chuck in oven for 15 mins on 220

Have you got lemon juice or vinegar? If you sour the milk you can make soda bread smile

Scones then.

Rub 2oz butter into 8oz SR flour and add milk to make a loose dough, pat it out into a round and cut into wedges, brush with milk and cook in very hot oven until done.

If you've got some butter, margarine or lard you can make scones, add sugar or dried fruit for a sweet version.

White sauce (butter and flour to make the roux and milk for the sauce) add cheese off the job to make cheese sauce?

Pancakes, just SR flour, with some milk, butter, sugar ...add water/ milk until batter looks right. Can mash in a banana if you have any.
