I’m going to start baking and selling to people I know. I mean- I’ve been baking for years and years, but I’m going to start charging. The problem is that I have no idea what is reasonable to charge for homemade bread and baked goods. So, what would you pay for large or small loaf of bread, focaccia, cinnamon buns, or whatever?
I currently make, fairly regularly
Foccacia (herb and garlic)
Half white/half whole wheat
White with cornmeal
Oatmeal cinnamon raisin
Ham and black pepper (bread with chopped ham and lots of pepper in the dough)
Monkey bread (little balls of dough layered in a bundt mold with cinnamon bun filling and walnuts)
Garlic potato bread
I can also do breads wrapped around fillings: I’ve been thinking about egg bread/ganache or nutella, pizza spiral, apricots and almond cream, stuff like that.
So, how much and what?
I want to emphasize that I intend this to be small, and people that I know or my husband knows. I am not buying an industrial mixer, switching to a restaurant kitchen, or putting in huge hours. I just like baking, need a little money, and know quite a few people who like to eat.
