Time to impress all those who enter your kitchen with your mad skills. You’re bound be a superstar with these baking hacks in action.
Hack To Make Your Own Bundt Pan
Sometimes you just wanna bake a bundt cake. If you don’t have a bundt pan then that’s going to be really hard to do. That’s where this baking hack comes in. You can make your own bundt pan by simply placing a soup can into your round cake pan. Simply add dry beans or rice to weigh the can down and then add your batter and bake as usual.
Be A Superstar and Customize Your Sheet Pan
Ever find yourself in need of a sheet pan size that you just don’t have. There is a baking hack for that. You can use tin foil to create the pan size you need. Spread the foil along your normal sheet pan until you get to your desired size. Add a little extra foil at the end to make a barrier so your batter or what not won’t flow past. And there you have it. You can turn your large sheet pan into any smaller size that you desire.
Add Mayo To Your Cake Mix
You heard right. 2 tablespoons of mayo could be the baking hack secret ingredient to turn your boxed cake mix from blah to TADA! Before you get grossed out let’s think about the things that make up mayo. It’s essentially oil and eggs (both good in a cake) and sometimes a little acid like vinegar. My old standby to fancy up a boxed cake mix has been a box of pudding but move over pudding cuz mayo is in town.
Sea Salt Hack for Chocolate Chip Cookies
You’re sure to be a superstar with this baking hack. Before you put your next batch of chocolate chip cookies into the oven sprinkle each cookie with a little bit of sea salt. It brings out the flavor and is a surprisingly perfect combo to your cookie.
More Chocolate Chip Cookie Hacks
I’m still stuck on the deliciousness of a good chocolate chip cookie. So here are 2 more baking hacks to make you a superstar. First, be sure to chill your dough before you start baking. I know, this is almost impossible to do because you are snitching the dough as well as eagerly anticipating eating a freshly baked cookie. But, I have it on good authority that if you are patient and chill your dough (one hour up to overnight) it will be worth the wait. Second, drop the pan. Huh? That’s what I thought the first time I heard about dropping the pan. The idea is as soon as the cookies come out of the oven you can lift up the pan and then drop it back down on the stove. It’s supposed to get the air bubbles out and force the cookies to settle.
These little baking hacks will go a long way in the kitchen. Before you know it you are well on your way to being a superstar. Now go get baking!
