Here are the 5 Best baking Tips.

  1. USE A LIGHT HAND

    Baking Tips

    If you’ve spent any time baking, you’ve likely come across the phrase “Do not overmix.” This is because once you add flour to a recipe, mixing encourages gluten development, which creates a chewy or tough texture. We knead bread dough to activate gluten so that the bread has a good chew factor—but we don’t want that in tender cakes and muffins! When a recipe says, “do not overmix,” stir only until the batter is uniform.

  2. ADD INGREDIENTS IN LITTLE PILES

    Maybe it’s just me, but I often lose track of what I’m doing in the kitchen. I always add ingredients to the bowl in neat little piles when I’m baking so that I can see what I’ve already added. Best Baking tip for me.

  3. INVEST IN A GOOD MIXER

  4. CHECK YOUR OVEN TEMPERATURE

It’s a good idea to check your oven temperature every so often to be sure it’s accurate. Along the same lines, when you’re baking, try not to open your oven to peek until the recommended cook time is up. Otherwise, you’ll let cool air in, which interrupts the baking process. The only exception to this rule is to rotate pans halfway through baking if you’re cooking on multiple pans or if your oven has a hot spot; just do it quickly so you don’t cool down the oven.

  1. MEASURE AND SCOOP BATTER EVENLY

    Use cookie scoops and ice cream scoops with triggers for measuring cookie dough, muffins, and cupcakes. The scoops will be more consistent, the baked goods will cook more evenly, and it’s a much faster way to get the job done.
