Do not rush your baking

Do not bake when you’re low of time! Baking the new recipe in a hurry could result in failure, particularly if you’re novice to baking this. Be patient in the process: read the recipe thoroughly, double-check that you have the ingredients you need and prep them, then heat your oven, and grease the pans. The more prepared you are, the better baked products will taste!

If I’ve attempted to make a recipe in a hurry I’ve failed spectacularly. Ingredients aren’t properly measured or are completely ignored or steps are not completed and the final product is not as good.

If you’re planning to bake something make sure to take a few deep breaths and remain attentive as you go to complete the baking recipe. I guarantee it’s worth it.


As we’ve said before baking is an art. A perfect baking experience demands precise ratios, well-tested methods, and tested recipes. Naturally some of the important baking techniques is making sure you measure ingredients correctly!

The measurement of your ingredients by weight rather than volume will be more precise.! All you require is a container and a scale.

This is one of my favorite baking tips that I’m sharing with you. If your recipe requires spoons and cups Don’t fret. There are simple, precise methods of measurement:

  • Measure dry ingredients with the form of measuring spoons, cups and measuring cups since they are specifically made to measure dry ingredients. Utilize the spoon and level method for this type of measurement. This means you must fill the measurement cup with an instrument, then set it to a level.
  • For liquid ingredients Use clear liquid measuring cups.


It’s tempting to substitute ingredients- and I’m a big fan of substitutions of ingredients. However, in the beginning, I wouldn’t go with it right now. When you’re looking to substitute the missing ingredient or try something new, keep the fact that any tested recipe should be adhered to.

Be sure to follow the ingredient list. In terms of how your baking products this step is extremely crucial. There’s a reason behind the order on an ingredient list, so be sure to comply with the order.

Room Temperature is the key

Whenever I’m talking baking tips, I always talk temperature. Temperature is crucial! If the recipe requires the use of eggs at room temperature, butter, or milk ensure that you comply. Room temperature ingredients will emulsify more easily into batter, which gives the perfect smooth, uniform texture.

If you are able, plan ahead. Examine the ingredients, make a notes of exact quantities and place everything in the kitchen counter. You’ll be grateful a few hours later, when you’re digging into the most delicious piece of cake ever.


Like people, every oven is unique. Gas ovens function in a different way than ovens with electric. Certain ovens are hotter than others, and some come with inevitable hot areas. It is essential to make the effort to get familiar with your oven as one of the most effective methods of doing this is by using the thermometer

Set up a thermometer that is accurate in the middle of your oven. It will give you the precise temperature of the area. The thermometer can be moved around to see the temperature of your oven’s cool and hot areas are.

This information can allow you to alter the baking time, temperature as well as alter your cooking style!


Baking depends on stable environments. The humidity level can affect the final product! There’s nothing more damaging to baked goods than consistently closing and opening the door of your oven. When you open the door, opening it prior to the correct time allows the heat that’s trapped within to escape.

Rely on the oven’s window and the light! When you are convinced that the baked item is finished, either immediately conduct the test with a toothpick or completely remove it. The longer you bake it more, the easier it becomes to determine whether something is cooked!

Never mix a hot extract into a batter or dough

A baking recipe should almost never call for an ingredient that is hot! Hot liquids can cause milk to curdle eggs to scramble as well as active ingredients to deteriorate.

If a recipe requires the use of a WARM ingredient, remember that it doesn’t mean hot. Let me tell you this”Hot” is not warm. Warm isn’t hot.

You must be able to contact the warm part of the food for at least five minutes and not burn yourself! Imagine how hot a warm bottle for your baby or a bedtime glass of milk.


In addition to the batter or the dough it is the pan that is the most crucial element of baking. With the variety of baking pans and baking dishes it is a challenge to decide which one is the right one!

I strongly recommend purchasing high-quality bakeware that is nonstick. The cheaper alternatives may be inconsistent in thickness, coated with unsafe coatings or cause baked goods to become stuck.

Select a sturdy, solid metal pan. Glass or ceramic dishes can have a negative impact on the recipe. Ceramic and glass require longer to warm up and keep heat in the oven for longer after having been taken out of the oven.

If you’re using ceramic or glass bake your food items out of the oven approximately five minutes before what the recipe specifies (they are still cooking while they cool) or decrease the temperature of the oven in 25 degrees.


Whatever type of baking pan you’ve selected it is important to grease the pan. It’s easy to think that lubricating an oven that is nonstick isn’t necessary, but it actually can make a difference. There’s nothing worse than having to work in the kitchen only to find your baked dessert stick to the sides of the pan! There’s no way back now.

To ensure your baked goods emerge intact and fresh, employ these tips.

The traditional Butter and dusting

  • Make sure you thoroughly coat the sides and bottom of the pan with soft butter homemade (or purchased) cake release or baking spray with non-stick properties.
  • Make use of flour (or cocoa powder in recipes that contain chocolate) to lightly dust the grease.

Line with Parchment Paper

  • Spread a piece of parchment paper on the counter of your kitchen and set the pan on the top. With a pencil or pen draw around the pan to make an outline that is perfectly fit. Cut the liner out carefully.
  • Clean and dust the pan according to instructions previously given and then place the liner in the pan’s bottom.
  • Once the cake is cooked and cool After cooling, take the cake out of the pan. Carefully remove the parchment paper from the cake’s bottom.

Non-Stick Baking Mats

  • Silicone mats come in many sizes and shapes these days. If you bake frequently it’s worth purchasing a few top-quality mats.
  • They can be used for cakes, cookies, pie
  • crusts, and many more.
