Big Jo, most tackle shops sell base mixes, for a start try a simple fishmeal base with a fishy additive. Don't confuse the issue with to many ingrediants.

I use this in summer with fairly good results

16oz+/- Nutrabaits Enervite Gold
6 Large eggs
5ml Nash Strawberry palatant
4ml Hutchy Orange Oil
1ml Hutchy vanilla ice cream

Boil for 2 minutes max then air dry for 12-24 hours. If not using the next day or 3, you can freeze them, they should be good for 5-7 days unfrozen

Has anyone have any recipes where you don't have to buy the latest flavours and base mixes from the tackle shop. ie ingredients you might find in your cupboards at home.

I really do hate to be a spoilsport, but after years of making a mess with bait making and stinking the house out, I've come to the conclusion that you are far better off investing in a bag of high quality commercially made baits and using hemp, corn, maize, chick peas and/or Vitalin as the attractors.
I think some of the bait companies well and truly conned many people a few years ago (with the help of certain "celebrity" anglers), into thinking that carpet bombing with fifty quid's worth of expensive bait per session was the only way to go. If you want to go down that route then good luck to you, but I honestly think that the intelligent use of maize, chick peas or even tiger nuts (which personally, I've never caught a damned thing on) will catch you more fish than knocking up what are quite likely to be very poor boilies made from cheap ingredients.
Just a personal opinion you understand.

I'm totally with peter on this one.

I do quite like the idea of some tasty hookbaits from time to time, but to be fair its hard to beat 2 or 3 grains of maize on a hair with a nice bed of boiled up pigeon food as an attractor.

Cost wise the 2 just simply don't compare.

As it happens I've boiled up a load of pigeon mix today to kick off my pre-baiting campaign tomorrow. A huge bucketful which doesnt even owe me 2 quid.

I did try making my own boilies by the way......didnt work out very cheap really to be honest and they were not even that good either.

Peter, not a spoilsport at all, I agree with what you have said.
I wasn't the person that asked the original question. I just didn't feel the recipes that were given were that 'home made' as all the ingredients were from bait companies.
