These baking quotes and sayings will put you in the mood to make a cake just because!

What is it about baking that you love?

I mean, there are many great aspects to baking.

Tell us your favorite baking quote in the comment section below.

Brunch is one of those like-it-or-loathe-it occasions. Two meals disguised as one, some might say, but it has its place. Pain perdu in French means lost bread, which at first seems a little jumbled in translation, but really it is fitting, as it is a dish best made with stale or day-old bread. Also known as French toast, it is perfect for a lazy weekend.

When I lived in France many years ago, I learned that French bread had a time limit and was best eaten fresh on the day it was made. This became cumbersome, as it meant daily trips to the boulangerie and also finding ways to use up crusts – a different life to the old sliced-pan version I was used to, but one I embraced.

Frugality is an art form, and using bread in desserts has been done for many centuries to prevent food waste. Treacle tart and bread and butter pudding are two examples. This week I am championing France in a hybrid of breakfast, brunch and dessert, using bread as a base and turning it into something fabulous with two of my favourite French classics: pain perdu and crème brûlée.

I’m using brioche, only for the fact that I love it; it is soft and milky and gorgeous in puddings. I don’t tend to have bits of brioche left over to use in puddings, I will admit, and so I buy it (or make it) just for this dessert, but you really can use any bready thing that has gone past its freshest – slightly stale croissants also work well here. Stale bread soaks up the custard much better, and the result, once baked, is soft and soothing and full of beautiful flavour.

The real kicker here? I cut a slit in each of my brioche slices and stuff them with orange-scented cream cheese before soaking in a vanilla and orange liqueur-spiked mix of eggs and milk. Omit the liqueur if you like, but it adds a delicious citrusy note and makes for a special brunch or dessert, whichever time of day you choose to eat it.

The crème brûlée element comes after baking. Once the pain perdu comes out of the oven, light brown sugar is sprinkled on top and scorched (using a blowtorch or under the grill) until burnished. Once it cools, it turns into a crackled top providing crunch and texture once cut into.

Enjoy the bake warm from the oven and relish in a taste of France.

Recipe: Crème brûlée pain perdu bake

The truth of the matter is that baking is not my forté. Sweet cookery scares me, but I love it. I’m a truly impatient person, whose ‘toxic trait’ is being extremely hard on myself, and so spending a lot of time waiting to find out whether I’ve fucked something up or not is terrifying to me.

Lately though, I’ve been finding my sweet tooth is growing more and more fervent. I want to experiment with how far I can take that sweet tooth in the kitchen. So I’m chuffed to say that baking maestro Stroma heeded that call, and has brought us an Easter showstopper that brought me joy to recreate. I hope it does the same for you.

As you can see from my far-from-perfect recreation (above), as compared to Stroma’s towering masterpiece (further above) – this bake is forgiving and delicious, no matter your baking skillset. I hope you will feel immense pride when you make it.

Meringue is a substance I have often dismissed as too sweet for my tastes, but Stroma’s pistachio meringue brings a toasty nuttiness to the table that – paired with the tart rhubarb – has flipped my prejudice on its head. I mean – WOW – this cake is an almighty triumph. I hope you agree.

“This meringue stack can be adapted through the seasons: hazelnut and raspberry, almond and strawberry, walnut and apple! Pistachios are pricey, but you can sub them for almonds, or leave them out. The good thing about this recipe is you can do a lot of the prep in advance – the meringue and rhubarb can be cooked the day before construction.

You will need some sort of electric whisk – a mixer or an electric hand whisk works nicely. This bake is a great way to celebrate rhubarb season, and a nice fruity one to give you a break from all the Easter chocolate!”


Baking equipment and items

Before you begin, make sure you have the right equipment and ingredients for the job. For baking, having a good oven with accurate temperature control is essential. You’ll also need quality baking dishes such as cake pans and cookie sheets. For example, by going to this website, you can see why it’s important to own a good set of measuring spoons and cups. Other essential items include scales to measure exact amounts of ingredients, measuring cups and spoons, thermometers to check doneness, timers to keep track of baking times, a rubber spatula to scrape down the bowl sides when mixing batter or dough, parchment paper for lining pans and avoiding sticking issues, cooling racks for hot baked goods like cakes and cookies, whisks (hand-held ones are great), wooden spoons for stirring batters or crusts over heat on the stovetop, etc.

Preparing your ingredients

Good preparation is key to the success of any baking project. Gather all your ingredients together before you start, measure and chop as needed, and make sure they are all at room temperature. Use quality ingredients such as butter, eggs, and fresh herbs for the best results. Once your ingredients are ready to go, preheat your oven and prepare your pans. Grease them with butter or oil if necessary and line them with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy removal later. Make sure to read through the recipe carefully so that you know exactly how to mix everything together!

Baking techniques

As you work on perfecting your baking skills, there are a few techniques you will want to keep in mind. These techniques can help improve the taste and texture of your baked goods as well as make them look more professional. One technique is called creaming, which involves beating butter with sugar until light and fluffy. This process adds air to the mixture, creating a lighter product that has good volume when it bakes. Another important baking technique is “rubbing in” fat into dry ingredients like flour. This creates small pieces of fat throughout the mix and helps keep it from becoming too dense when it bakes.

Cooling and storing your creation

Once your baked goods have finished baking, remove them from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack. Place cakes directly onto the rack after they are removed from their pans. Allow cookies to cool slightly on the cookie sheet before transferring them to the cooling rack. Leave the bread in their pans for 10 minutes or so before transferring them to a cooling rack. Allow baked goods to fully cool until room temperature before storing. This can take anywhere from 15 minutes for cookies to an hour or more for thick-crusted bread and large cakes.

Finishing touches

No cake can be considered complete without a final touch before it is served. You can finish off your baking masterpiece with decorations such as fondant, frosting, or edible decorations like fresh fruit and whipped cream. Fondant is an icing-like substance made from sugar, shortening, and gelatin that can be rolled out and molded into shapes to create a solid decorative layer on top of the cake. To use fondant properly, knead it until smooth and pliable before rolling it out with a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface until about 1/4 inch thick.

Enjoy your creations

Baking like a professional can be intimidating at first, but with practice and patience, you’ll be creating delicious treats for years to come. With the right tools, ingredients, techniques, and finishing touches, your baking projects are sure to impress everyone who tries them. So grab an apron, preheat the oven, and get ready to bake like a professional!

Quotes about baking and cooking

29. “The biggest challenge of being a pastry chef is that, unlike other types of chefs, you can’t throw things together at a farmer’s market. When you’re working with baking powder and a formula, you have to be exact. If not, things can go wrong.” — Carla Hall

35. “In baking, cooks need to understand ingredient ratios.” — Sherry Yard

36. “If you don’t have the confidence in baking, commit to making the recipe three times. The first two, do it exactly the way I’ve told you to make it. Twice. The first time you’ll screw it up.

Growing a business is like baking a cake.

But here’s the million-dollar question –

How do you SKIP the mess and get to the GOOD part?!

You know, the one where you’re grand opening your second location, being featured in magazines, on tv, working with celebrity clients (who pay YOU!), and doing more of the things you LOVE.

Lemme tell you, after 12+ years in this industry, I’ve learned that the ONE thing that sets a successful business apart from one that fails is it’s foundation.

You may be working you a** off creating the most amazing products and even have a good amount of repeat customers (which is AWESOME!).

BUT you may feel like things aren’t moving fast enough or you’re not making as much as you DESERVE.

You may have started this business because you love the art of creating.

Or maybe because a friend or family member needed a cake. You did it, It came out pretty freaking good, and everyone gassed up you saying, “You should start a business!”

So you did!

It took off! You’re now making cakes maybe part-time or full-time, you’re getting return customers, and things are going good.

I’m an artist, educator, entrepreneur, and founder of the award-winning bakery, The Cake Mamas (that landed me on FoodNetwork not once, not twice, but FOUR times!).

When I started my baking business, I didn’t know sh*t about being a business owner. I had ZERO experience, had just filed for bankruptcy, had NO MONEY and had to learn EVERYTHING the hard way.

Which of these baking quotes is your favorite?

Here are a few answers to commonly asked baking questions in case you need a few more tips.

If you are like me, you think you have an ingredient, then bake only to realize you are missing something.

The worst is thinking you have baking powder, only to discover what you actually have is baking soda.

You can substitute buttermilk, plain yogurt, and vinegar for baking powder.

If you need baking soda and don’t have that, you can use baking powder!

Just remember to use three times the amount of baking powder than the amount of soda the recipe calls for.

If you want to bake healthier versions of things, you can switch up the flour for a lower-carb option, like bean flour.

Chickpea and Garbanzo bean flour are some wonderful options.

You can replace sugar with applesauce and use a banana instead of oil.
