I know it’s been a while since I last posted on the blog, and I’m sorry about that. I haven’t been in a good place lately (another blog post for another time), but I’m back and ready to post again! Today I’m going to be sharing my Top 10 Baking Essentials with you guys, so let’s get started.
- Mixing Bowls
I couldn’t live without my set of plastic mixing bowls. They are so versatile and have a great non-slip base. Every home baker needs at least 2 mixing bowls of different sizes.
2. Rubber Spatula
These spatulas are so useful for mixing batter, folding in egg whites and anything else that requires a delicate touch.
3. Measuring Cup & Spoons
These 2 are an absolute must have. I would be lost without my Oxo Good Grips measuring jug and my set of measuring spoons. They are equally as useful for cooking as they are for baking.
I use an old-school mesh sieve for all of my baking. It’s perfect for sifting flour and icing sugar. Saying that, I’m planning on buying a hand flour sifter because they are a lot less messy than my old-school sieve 🙂
5. Egg Separator
I use an egg separator almost every time I bake. It’s a must have for making marshmallow fluff or delicate cake batters. It’s so much easier and less messy than separating the egg in your hand!
6. Hand Mixer
I love my hand mixer, it’s incredibly versatile and perfect when you need to mix something quickly. I use it for egg whites, marshmallow fluff and whipped cream!
7. Stand Mixer
I was lucky enough to get my Kenwood Patissier Mixer for my 21st birthday. This thing is an absolute life saver when you have to make double batches of cake batter and of course my beloved marshmallow fluff. It’s definitely worth investing in a good quality stand mixer because you’ll end up having it for the rest of your life!
8. Cupcake Pan, Spring-Form Cake Pan & Baking Sheet
These 3 are absolutely essential to any home baker. Having these 3 means you can bake just about anything, from the obvious cupcakes, cakes & cookies, to bread, cheesecake, cinnamon rolls and tarts.
9. Heat Resistant Glass Bowl
I love my Pyrex glass bowl. It’s perfect to use as a bain marie when you need to temper chocolate and make meringue!
10. Small Saucepan
The last thing in my Top 10 Baking Essentials is a small saucepan. I use my Scanpan Impact saucepan to make cake batter, sauces, lemon curd and of course I use it as a bain marie.
I hope this small list of baking essentials can help you out in your day to day baking! Thanks for reading my little blog post and have a great day 🙂
