Essential Baking Tips for Beginners

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.
