Baking is easy and fun, and what better time thank now to learn how to bake. Its a great way to relax and unwind if you don’t mind clearing up after! The easiest thing to make is chocolate chip cookies.


Then you could step things up with cupcakes, then when you are feeling more confident, try some brownies. But the most important thing is: when you make ANYTHING from puff pastry, buy it. Its just too much of a hassle to make, and try to attempt it, you’ll probably want to give up baking. But this is about how to learn to bake so roll up your sleeves and get ready to learn

We are big fans of baking, and have had a life long passion, so I think it’s important that people learn to bake at home, rather then buying month old doughy cupcakes from a store. So watch these videos and learn how to bake easy.

Remember, start from the beginning of the course or else it wont really help, we found all the videos just to help you start and learn.

So let’s review all of the different varieties of flour and their best uses including all-purpose flour, bread flour, cake flour, self-rising flour, whole wheat flour, white whole wheat flour, and whole wheat pastry flour.

  6. laura herrera cuellar says:

    I am new to baking but I have to say that this science requires a lot of chemistry knowledge as I had spent a lot of money in trying to cook crispy cookies or at least decent consistency cookies with all-purpose flour in Malaysia (very humid environment). I have added emulsifiers but the taste changes so please, please help me to get the correct flour and emulsifier for cookies that will keep its texture after one hour if kept in an airtight container.
    Thank you in advance for all your help and advise.

    Subscribe 🙏🏻 thank you 🙏🏻

    I wish you had included cookies or muffins with more flour, and some with less flour, to really illustrate the role flour has in baked goods.
    Like you did with your sugar video.
    The title of this video is the function of flour in baking but sadly I come away knowing about the differences between types of flour but not much at all about flour's function in baking.

  9. A J says:

    Why not do a video where you make muffins with the correct amount of flour, then one with 50% more, and one with 50% less, and show the differences between them?

  10. Shelley Lee says:

    I'm so glad I watched this lesson on flours! I wish I would have had time to watch it before I made my cakey cinnamon rolls. Now I know the problem was the wrong kind of flour. I had no clue about "soft winter wheat" and protein/gluten content. The flour I love for light buttermilk biscuits is NOT the right flour for chewy cinnamon rolls! I am in love with your cooking school!!!

  11. FoodandTravelMom says:

    Excellent video!!!

  12. Piter Hellow says:

    B. M. For bread which flour is we have to buy in Spain????

  13. Robin InVA says:

    I’d think the whole wheat flours don’t have the germ….or it would go rancid.

  14. Jamila Hunter says:

    So I am/ have to cook and bake more due to this unique time and I found this video very interesting and helpful!

  15. Kamikaze says:

  19. Sharon Chettiar says:

    Can puff pastry be made out of paztry flour

  20. enzo paparella says:

    what flour is a type 1 flour ?…Thanks

  21. Leo Sagerstrom says:

    Just a quick Question: The only reason for a choice of Flour is how much protein content it contains to decide the strength of the Gluten Structure after the flour is hydrated.

    How can we tell by ourselves the Protein content of any flour?

  22. Garlic Girl says:

    This was nice to know.
