To put it simply, baking is fully cooking food in an oven. Yes, this is what we did when Valli announced the event Fire up your oven. This was a month long marathon where we posted everyday. Just about anything can be baked, including breads, cakes, bars, muffins…even vegetables, though I haven’t done any savory bakes, I must admit we had a good team of friends who have made some amazing bakes. And we have a good team captain, Valli who organizes these marathons to keep us on our toes.

Baking requires perfect temperature, perfect time depending on the dish that is baked. We have a variety of ovens to bake in, basically it is the dry heat which helps in baking. 

As soon as we talk of baking, I think of breads, cakes, brownies, muffins. now most of these bakery products are like cousins, with a little variation the concept changes. 

For the month of April I divided my bakes into five categories, one each for a week. Again these categories were subdivided. End of every week I have a Baking related post where you have some tips, conversion chart, egg substitutes and cake trouble shooters.

Here is a recap of this monthly event where you have all the bakes at one place. Most of these are healthy bakes , where I have used wheat flour, oats, brown sugar etc.
Week 1 – Breads
Week  2 – Tea Cakes
Week 3 – Cookies and Bars
Week 4 – Muffins and Brownies
Week 5  – Decorative Cakes

  1. Those are some 'Healthy' bakes and in the BM frenzy, I didn't notice that you have posted on Sundays too though I caught up with one of your posts. It was fun running the marathon with you as always. 🙂

  2. Not sure if my last comment got posted or not. Enjoyed doing the marathon with you and the virtual treat of the bakes.
