Basic food, lolly (5)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this is a double definition.

'basic food' is the first definition.
(I've seen this before)

'lolly' is the second definition.
(both are slang terms for money)

(Other definitions for bread that I've seen before include "brass" , "Gracefully thin" , "Dosh (slang)" , "rhino" , "''Eaten . . . . . is soon forgotte''" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
