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.

Welcome back to baking school day 9! Today we are tackling the subject of leavening! Leavening is the thing that makes our baked goods rise and there are a number of different things that leaven our baked goods. Baking powder and baking soda are forms of chemical leavening, yeast is a form of biological leavening, and air and steam are forms of physical leavening. So let’s dive into all of these different things and how they function to make our baked goods rise!
