Kitchen 101: My Top Baking Hacks

Updated: Sep 16, 2019

I wanted to share my top 10 baking hacks to use for all of your baked goods. These baking hacks work, I guarantee it!

  1. Ripen Bananas Quickly - place the bananas on a sheet pan and bake them at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 to 40 minutes.

  2. Soften Butter Quickly - heat up a glass of water in a microwave friendly cup. Pour out the water and place the cup upside down over your stick of butter. It will soften and not melt your butter.

  3. Grate Your Butter - grating your butter will help your butter be evenly distributed in your biscuits and pie crusts.

  4. Hard Brown Sugar - when your brown sugar is rock hard, microwave it in a dish covered with a wet paper towel for 20 to 30 seconds

  5. Sugar into Confectioner's Sugar - blend sugar in a blender at high speed until it reaches a fine powder.

  6. Pre-Heat Your Knife - run your knife under hot water, dry, and then slice your cake or brownie in perfect slices.

  7. Room Temperature Eggs - when you forget to take your eggs out, place your eggs in hot bowl of water for 5 to 10 minutes.

  8. Refrigerate Your Cookie Dough Before Baking - let your cookies rest overnight and they'll taste even better when it's time to eat.

  9. Use Lemon-Lime Soda - use sprite to soak your apples for 2 to 3 minutes to prevent browning and add a little extra flavor

  10. Use Mason Jar Bands - perfect for when you don't have a muffin pan or want to make small batches. Place cupcake/muffin tins in the mason jar tops to hold them in place.

Happy Planning :),
