Preheat the oven for baking

July 5, 2011 Filed under Tip of the Day

When baking, set the oven to the required temperature and preheat so the oven is ready when you are ready so that your uncooked mixture doesn’t deteriorate while you are waiting for the oven to heat up.  This is especially important when you have a mixture that includes raising agents, like beaten eggs, or baking powder, as these can start working before the mixture gets into the oven and the mixture won’t rise as it should while cooking.

Clean up as you go

April 2, 2011 Filed under Tip of the Day

When you’re baking, its worth filling the sink with hot sudsy water so you can wash the dishes as you go.  Saves a big job at the end.

If you’re baking with children it gets them into the good habit of cleaning up after themselves. They also get to realise that Mum is not just there to clean up after them.
