STRUCTURED LESSONS TO BECOME A GREAT BAKER

As well as having a passion to make baked goods from scratch I want to teach you how to do this by a series of specially structured recipes that will start you off from the very simple and progress to more complex recipes.  There will be a series of numbered recipes, and in different categories.  There will be sweet and savoury bakes and further sections within these, such as cupcakes or rolls.  So please choose if you would like to start with sweet or savoury then select recipe number 1 for that category.  Never jump any recipes as there will be valuable tips and techniques within each recipe.  If you have some baking experience then by all means start on a different recipe, but please read through the recipes you skip, just incase there's something helpful there.

Homebaking Is Simply The Best

image12

Know what's in the food you are eating.  Bake your own food and say goodbye to nasty artificial flavours, additives and preservatives.  Reduce the amount of processed food you consume on a daily basis by learning how to make everything you enjoy from scratch.  Don't know how or where to start?  Let me help you learn to be the best baker you can.  My aim is to show the easiest and quickest methods to bake a wide array of baked goodies with specially written recipes and step by step pictures that don't leave you tearing your hair out (like so many other recipes).  By testing and reviewing recipes from books and on-line, and using my own knowledge from practice, I hope my own recipes will teach you too.  


To begin with I have created lessons 1 -7 to start start you off and many more will come.  Examples of which can be seen in my Photo Gallery further down the page.  I will review new recipes I come across and time allowing, I will post in the review section for you to read.  My other aim is for my readers to send me requests for recipes they would like me to try first and review before they attempt it.  If you would like to request something, please do so via the CONTACT FORM and I will see what I can do.  Please also feel free to use the contact form to provide me with your feedback and this is a new learning experience and I would appreciate your input.


But above all, please have fun baking in the knowledge that 'Homebaking is Simply The Best'.   You cannot beat it for taste, especially when made from the heart.  I hope yoou enjoy your baking journey.

DAILY BAKING TIPS

STICKY DOUGH

image16

  Do you struggle when you find a dough too sticky to handle? In the case of most breads/rolls, don’t be tempted to add loads more flour as this can impair the bake. If the recipe states the dough will be a bit sticky, then oil your hands a little and you will be able to handle the dough and even knead it. If the recipe doesn’t tell you or show you how the dough should be – then ditch that recipe. 

Ciabatta baked

image17

  Baking is a science as much as it’s an art, so why should all the best bakers know all the secrets??  


See the before and after photo s. The bread dough is extremely sticky in photo 1 and miraculously transforms into the beautiful form in photo 2. A little oil help you get the dough out.
