These are the Top 10 Do's and Don'ts of Baking!

  1. Use quality ingredients: Do use high-quality ingredients, such as butter, flour, sugar, and eggs, can make a significant difference in the taste and texture of baked goods. Of course we would recommend our Tiger Nuts Flour and Tiger Nuts Oil which is Gluten and Nut Free, Organic, High Fiber, Low fats, Non Allergenic, AIP, Paleo and much more. 

  2. Do follow the recipe: It's important to follow the recipe exactly, including measurements, mixing times, and oven temperatures, to ensure consistent and successful results.

  3. Preheat the oven: Do preheat the oven for at least 10-15 minutes before baking helps ensure even cooking and proper rising.

  4. Use an oven thermometer: Do use an oven thermometer as ovens can vary in temperature, so using an oven thermometer to verify the temperature can help ensure accurate baking times and prevent over- or under-cooking.

  5. Do measure ingredients properly: Use measuring cups and spoons to accurately measure ingredients, especially flour and sugar, which can greatly affect the final outcome.

  6. Do use the right tools: Using the appropriate baking tools, such as a stand mixer, spatulas, and baking pans, can help create consistent and evenly baked goods.

  7. Don't overmix the batter: Overmixing the batter can cause the gluten to develop too much, resulting in tough or rubbery baked goods.

  8. Don't overbake: Overbaking can cause baked goods to dry out and become hard or tough. It's important to check the doneness of baked goods by inserting a toothpick or cake tester into the center.

  9. Do let baked goods cool completely: Allowing baked goods to cool completely before slicing or frosting can prevent them from becoming too crumbly or falling apart.

  10. Do practice and experiment: Baking is a skill that takes practice to perfect. Don't be afraid to experiment with different ingredients, techniques, and recipes to find what works best for you.
