Baking is an art form. But don’t worry—you don’t have to be an artist to get your baking on! We’ve gathered some of your favorite tips for beginners, so you can start baking like a pro.

1. Have all your ingredients ready before you start mixing.

2. Measure out your flour and sugar, butter oil, and any other ingredients you’ll need before you start mixing them together. This will help keep the dough from getting overworked and make the final product more delicious.

3.  Don’t overwork the dough! This will make it tough and dry out when you bake it.

4. Let the flour get cold before adding it to the mixture so it doesn’t absorb too much heat from the other ingredients.

5. If you’re using a stand mixer or electric hand mixer, try using half “cream” (half milk) and half water to get a smoother texture with less risk of overworking your dough than if you used just milk alone—plus this type of mix can usually be done on low speed for longer periods of time without over heating (which can cause unevenness).

6.Don’t use too much yeast.

7. In pizza always use hands to mix doughs.If you’re using a stand mixer, set it to low and let the machine do the work for you. You’ll save time, energy and frustration!

8. When you’re making bread or pizza dough, don’t forget to add salt and oil—you can always add more later if needed!

9. When you’re making cookies or cake, make sure to use your hands as well as any tools that come with your baking equipment (like a whisk or a paddle attachment). This will help ensure that all ingredients get evenly distributed throughout each piece of food being cooked.

10.Make sure your ingredients are at room temperature before you begin cooking them so that they mix together. Or don’t start mixing cookie dough until it’s been sitting out at room temp for few hours.

11.If possible, always preheat oven before placing anything inside it - especially when baking something hot like cookies – it will make things much easier on yourself and kitchen appliances!

12.Make sure your ingredients are at room temperature before starting to mix them.

13.Always measure the ingredients you are using, especially if you are making something new!

14.Using a cool, wet towel to wipe down your mixing bowl is an easy way to keep it from getting too hot and burning the ingredients in there. 

15.When adding dry ingredients to wet, make sure that there are no lumps of flour in the mixture before you start kneading it together! This can cause problems later on in your baking process when you try to roll out dough into balls or shapes with this mixture as it will be more difficult for you if there are any lumps of flour present.

16.When measuring out liquid ingredients, don’t skip them altogether because they add bulk to the finished product and make it easier for your baked goods to rise properly (without being too heavy).

17. If possible use digital scale instead of measuring cups because it will give you more accurate results without having to worry about cups overflowing or not being filled completely enough.

18. Always use a digital thermometer to measure your oven temperature. If you don’t, your baked goods may be overdone or underdone, which will affect the taste and texture of your breads and pastries.

19. Don’t overmix dough! This can result in tough dough that’s difficult to work with. You should fold the flour into liquid ingredients gradually until there are no dry patches left on the surface of the dough ball.

20. Different flours absorb water at different rates, so don’t substitute one type of flour for another unless specifically instructed to do so by a recipe or cookbook author.

21. To prevent gluten development during mixing, add the liquid ingredients to flour gradually while mixing just until incorporated before adding the rest of the ingredients (or ‘’proofing’’ stage). This process helps prevent over-developing gluten which would lead to tough breads and pastries later on down the line when baked properly at higher temperature (e.g., 3500F/1800C).

22. If using self-rising flour as a substitute for regular all-purpose flour in recipes like pancakes or biscuits, add an extra ¼ cup (60 mL) baking powder.
