Baking Delights contest & Why bake at home

March 12th, 2008

cheesecake.jpgMarye at Baking Delights is having a contest. You’ll want to check it out soon if you like French desserts. Je t’aime.

And while I’m here, I might as well remind you that it’s much more eco-friendly to bake at home than to buy packaged products or mixes. You can do it. Plus, it makes your place smell so good — muffins, cupcakes, cheesecake, bread, brownies. I need a snack.

I know that it might take more time to bake stuff than it does to buy it at the store, but homemade can be so much better. And you have control over your ingredients. You can also help the environment by purchasing organic flour and butter and chocolate!

I’m trying to do more home-baking myself. My latest from-scratch creations include coffee cake muffins, chocolate chip muffins, baked cappuccino custard and shortbread of all kinds.

    My fiance and I do all our baking at home and don’t really miss store bought snacks at all. We usually bake a loaf or two of bread on Sunday along with some sort of sweet. You obviously don’t need to bake sweets that often but I love sweets so… We are trying to use honey and applesauce to replace refined sugars and using whole wheat flour to replace all purpose with great results!

    Hey badhuman. Thanks for stopping by. I haven’t tried whole wheat instead of all purpose, but I do try for organic flour as much as possible.
