Cakes, pies, cookies, homemade bread and dinner rolls are part of many holiday meals. It’s often time to revisit cherished family recipes, or try a new one, so to make your baking even better, here are a few quick tips:
- Allow ingredients to come to room temperature
- Never substitute baking powder for baking soda or vice-versa; they cause different reactions when combined with other ingredients.
- Make sure that your oven has come up to the required temperature before putting your baked goods in the oven.
- Have fun! Getting the little ones involved in measuring, mixing and decorating is a treat for them and the baker.
