World Baking Day With Some of my Favourites.

Today 17th May is World Baking Day so with this in mind we are putting up some of our favourite video/recipe links.

Baking is a great pastime with the very important benefits of knowing exactly what goes into your recipes. There are no added preservatives/colours etc which enables you to make the choices appropriate to your own household. Talking of which, don’t forget to involve the wee ones. I loved baking with my girls and they both now regularly bake themselves, and it has to be said much more often than me these days.

Whether it’s a loaf of bread, fairy cakes, a sponge or meringues, baking is a great pastime with the feeling of great achievement afterwards…..oh and then; there’s the getting to eat it.

Don’t forget to let us know if you have any questions or any favourites that you’d like us to make.

We have also included some useful hints which are supplied via Dr Oetker.

  • The right oven temperature can make or break your brownies, so make sure it’s fully preheated to the correct temperature before baking.
  • Room temperature ingredients mix better than cold ones! To whip up the best sponge, try and get your cold ingredients as close to room temperature as possible before combining.
  • If you’re making a tiered cake, a simple but effective way to even up your layers is to weigh your batter on a kitchen scale – this will ensure they’re nice and even.
  • Forget what you know about whipping air into the cake batter to make it light and fluffy, as that trick doesn’t work with vegan baking! To avoid a cake that’s too dense, try stirring the wet and dry ingredients until they are just combined.
  • When making meringues, room temperature eggs whip up better than cold ones and will give your meringue lots more volume.
