Sprinkles of Knowledge to Whip Up a New Recipe
It’s officially the season of gingerbread cookies, fruit cakes, and Santa-decorated sugar cookies. Many families have holiday recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. But have you ever thought about being the founder of a family recipe? If you have a knack for baking up a storm during the winter months and create a recipe of your own! Save the recipe to bake it again for the 2022 Wyoming’s Big Show.
Here are some baking tips and tricks to get you started developing your own delicious recipes!
Tip 1: If your recipe includes berries, chocolate chips or heavy nuts coat them in flour before mixing them into your batter. It will help prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the container during baking.
Tip 2: Having a hard time getting your baking to rise even with the right amount of flour? Try sifting your flower after you measure it out. The extra air can help it rise better.
Tip 3: Line your pans with parchment paper for easy removal of cakes, brownies or bars. This makes sure nothing sticks to the edges.
Tip 4: When in doubt, let all your ingredients come to room temperature. This includes butter, eggs and water. This can affect how certain ingredients react with other ingredients and how they bake in the oven.
