Frugality in baking of making bread with 1 cup of flour instead of with 4 or 6 cups as most basic recipes consist of and half pack of yeast.   The portions are smaller, but the quality is quite the same as the 4 or 6 cups.   They are good for just quick breakfast, afternoon tea break, or just for dinner rolls.  Great for serving 2 people or singles.  Wonderful for toaster oven bakers.
