Here are some things to keep in mind when you’re baking!
Measure your ingredients accurately
Baking requires precision. Use a digital scale to make sure your measurements are exact.
Use fresh ingredients
Check the sell-by date of your ingredients like baking soda, baking powder, yeast and flour. If your baked goods didn’t rise the way they should, it may be because these ingredients have been sitting in your cupboard for a while.
Mix the dough right
Follow the recipe as to how much, how long or how intensely you should mix your dough.
Use the right tin
Check if the recipe calls for a specific tin size. Different cakes require different tins according to the ingredients, recipe yield or cooking time.
Bake at the right temperature
Get an oven thermometer so you can get a precise reading of your oven’s temperature. Make sure to accurately preheat your oven and place the pan in the center of your oven rack to allow air circulation.
