Do you have any tips for beginner bakers?
Whether you are baking the cutest cupcakes or a fresh warm loaf of bread for morning toast, weighing and measuring your ingredients precisely is important to ensure success. If you are following a recipe, it is most certainly advised that you read it properly before beginning. Remember that substituting ingredients or changing quantities can be a challenge as you will need to take the equilibrium between dry and wet ingredients into consideration. Preparing and measuring all of your ingredients, before you begin, will make the whole baking process much simpler.
Eggs will take in more air and butter will cream easier if you allow your ingredients to warm to room temperature prior to baking, this will help to ensure the best possible consistency. Remember to always preheat your oven to the required temperature. Do not open your oven regularly. This is particularly important if you are making bakes that you want to rise as opening the oven can cause your delight to deflate. Most baking recipes require salt, and this does not make your final creation salty, but instead, enhances the flavours and helps to prevent your treat from being too sweet. The most important thing to do when trying to become a top baker is to practice, practice, practice- we are sure your family and friends will be more than happy to be your taste testers!
