Baking can be a really time-consuming process. So before you put your hands in the flour next time, why don’t you make use of a few hints we have collected for you?
#1 Applesauce instead of oil
Less fat, more fruit – isn’t it a perfect substitute of oil for anyone making an apple pie? A glass of oil can be replaced with ¾ of sugarless applesauce
#2 Come back to beans
When you bake brownies, it is just a marvelous ingredient. It gives the dough the right sticky texture and is so much healthier!
# Use aluminum foil
When you baking tray is too large as the recipe calls for much smaller dimensions, it’s time you used aluminum foil!
#4 Alternatives to eggs
Eggs are there in almost every single recipe. Unfortunately, sometimes our egg resources simply speaking run out. When you don’t have any left, you can reach for some alternatives.
#5 Keep the grease away from your kitchen top
If you have to grease a dish, you’d better do it over the dishwasher door. You will avoid making so much mess!
#6 Instant soft butter
You are just about to bake something and you realize the butter is stone-frozen? Pour hot water into a glass, wait a moment, pour it out and cover the butter with the hot glass.
#7 Use a confectionery sleeve
Even the simplest cupcakes will get so much more charm when you decorate them with cream.
#8 It doesn’t have to be flour
You can prepare your own alternative. For example millet, oat or nut flour, with a blender or a food processor. Add as much as it takes and wait until the powder gets fine.
#9 Let your cookies stay soft longer
To do that, keep them in a box with a slice of bread.
#10 Prevent sugar lumps
Put the lump of hardened sugar into a bowl and sprinkle with a few spoonfuls of water. Then cover it with kitchen paper towel and put it into the microwave for 30 seconds. Repeat the heating after the sugar softens.
#11 No more chasing bowls
Sick and tired of chasing the bowl all around the kitchen table? Before you get the third arm transplanted, try something easier – just put a dump kitchen cloth underneath.
#12 Cute cookies
A jar lid can make a fantastic cookie mold if you want to bake small ones this time. All your guests, the young and the old, will be in seventh heaven!
#13 Perfect peanut butter
You want to bake cookies with peanut butter but there is the oil at the top of it again? Although stirring it is not complicated either, it can be even easier if you just put the jar upside down.
#14 The ingredients balance
Baking is all about proportions. Are you sure that your ‘glass of flour’ is exactly ‘a glass’?
