Hello all of you. It's been a long time since a 'Baking Basics' article has been published on the blog. So I thought I should write one now. 

I have already written a detailed article titled HOW TO START BAKING?   for new bakers. It is a detailed description about the procedure one should follow if he/she is going to bake for the first time. Another important article you should have a look at is ESSENTIAL TOOLS FOR BAKING. In this article, I have sum up the basic tools and equipments one should have to start baking. I hope you would enjoy reading these articles. 

A baker weather a home baker or a professional baker, should have some particular ingredients all the time with him. These ingredients form the basis of any baked delicacy. Ofcourse, depending upon what you are baking, the ingredients would differ but these are some of the constant  baking  ingredients which are needed no  matter what you bake. 

Now let's have a look at these 5 INGREDIENTS THAT EVERY BAKER SHOULD HAVE :

1) FLOUR - 

Flour is undoubtedly the most important baking ingredient. Anything you have to make weather it is a cake , cupcake or a cookie; flour is needed. Even if you have to make savoury baked delicacies like pizza, buns, breads, etc, you still need  flour. 
Always remember friends, whenever you use flour, ALWAYS SEIVE IT. When you seive flour, it  makes it airy. This helps in making spongy cakes and cupcakes. Also when you would seive flour, baking powder or baking soda together, they would mix together nicely. 

If you want to make your baked items healthier,  you can replace flour with wheat flour. 

Thus always have flour if you want to bake. It is the basic ingredient which you would need everyrime you bake. 

2) Sugar - 

Sugar is another important ingredient for baking. Sugar is needed in cakes,  cupcakes, muffins, cookies, biscuits etc. You should use powdered sugar for baking. You can easily get powdered sugar in market. But if you don't get it, no problem. You can make it at home also. Take a blender and fill it with sugar. Grind it till it gets powdered. You can now easily use it for baking. For making tasty frostings for cakes and cupcakes, you need sugar as well. Thus sugar is an important ingredient. 

3) Butter - 

Butter is also required for baking. Butter provides mositure to the baked goods. It makes cakes and cupcakes spoongy and soft. Remember always USE BUTTER THAT IS AT ROOM TEMPERATURE. This is a very important baking tip. 
Now, most of the recipes ask for creaming the butter and sugar till sugar dissolves in butter properly. Bakers usually use hand mixer for mixing butter and sugar  together. If you don't have a hand mixer, you can wisk butter and sugar together using a spatula as well. 

Like but
ter, oil is also an important ingredient as many recipes use oil instead of butter. 

Also for making buttercream frosting, butter is required in a good quantity. Thus always have butter if you are going to bake. 

4)  Eggs - 

Eggs also make cakes and cupcakes spongy. Eggs should also be used at room temperature. If you are vegetarian, then ofcouse you wouldn’t bake cakes using eggs. You can easily substitute eggs with other ingredients like banana, yogurt and oil. Below is a simple chart which shows the substitutes of an egg - 

You can use this chart to replace egg with ingredients like banana, yogurt and oil. In this way, you can easily bake cakes, cupcakes and many other things without eggs. 

5) Baking Soda and Baking Powder - 

Baking Powder and Baking  soda are the leavening agents. They help the batter to rise.  These are very very essential for  baking. Always keep in  mind that your baking powder and baking soda should be fresh. If they are expired,  they won't help your batter in rising. Therefore always use fresh Baking Powder and baking soda.

Nutella Cake Balls

Nutella Cake Balls

Hello everyone.  Many a times, when we bake cake, we are left with cut pieces of cake,  especially if we have to frost the cake, we cut the top layer of the cake and thus have left over pieces of cake. So if you also have any such left over pieces of cake, this recipe is perfect for you. You can actually  make this recipe using any cake. If you have baked any cake, you can use that. Or you can even use market bought cake for this recipe. 

Nutella is another very tasty ingredient. Nutella, in this recipe, helps in binding the cake balls. After making small nutella cake balls, they are covered in a nice dark chocolate sauce. After some time, the chocolate gets cooled down and thus makes a nice coating around the cake balls. I decorated them with a cute edible heart. 

Time taken for making this - 10 minutes. 

Serves -  6-8 cake balls 

Ingredients - 

  • 1 Cup Cake pieces 
  • 1/2 Cup Nutella
  • 1/4 Cup chopped Dark Chocolate 
  • 1 teaspoon butter

Method - 

  • Take your cake and break it (crumble it)  into very samll pieces. 
  • Add nutella and knead this to form a dough type mixture. 
  • Make small balls from this mixture. Keep  these balls in the fridge for half an hour. This will make them a little firm.

  • In the meantime, melt dark chocolate and butter. You can do this in two ways - a)  In a microwave safe bowl, add chopped dark chocolate and butter. Microwave it for around two minutes or till the chocolate and butter melts nicely. Take this out and give it a nice stir. b) Take a saucepan and fill it with water. Heat it. In another bowl, add chocolate and butter. Keep this  second bowl on top of the first bowl. Slowly the chocolate and butter mixture will melt. Stir it continously.
  • Allow the dark chocolate sauce  to cool down.  
  • Now take out the nutella cake balls and one by one dip them in melted dark chocolate. Coat these nutella cake balls nicely with melted chocolate. 
  • Allow these balls to cool down. 
  • Your nutella cake balls are ready! 


If you don't have dark chocolate, then make the nutella cake balls and just keep them in fridge for half an hour. After this, you can eat them like that only. They'll taste nice like this  also.

Hello all of you. The main motive behind this blog is to help home bakers. Therefore I thought of posting about the basics of baking. I will try  to write at least one post related to Baking Basics every  week.

This week, the  topic is - Cake Tins

Cake tins,  also known as cake moulds, are the most important baking tool. We bake our cakes in cake tins. So this is probably the first baking cookware any person buys. So let's  first discuss the types of cake tins.

# Aluminium Cake Tin - 

Aluminium cake tin is the most common form of cake tin one would find in anyone's house. They come in different shapes like heart,  square,  round etc.

How to grease an aluminium cake tin? 

One thing to remember while using aluminium cake tin is to grease it. You can do this in two ways - 

# Put few drops of  oil in the tin. Using a brush or your hand,  spread this oil properly on the cake tin's surface. Coat both  the sides and the base of the cake tin. Now add a handful of  flour into the  cake tin. Tap the cake tin from all sides,  so that the flour tin gets coated with the flour. Tap on the back of the cake tin to remove any extra flour. 

# You can also use a butter paper. Properly put oil on your cake tin. Cut the butter paper according to the size of your cake tin. Press the butter paper properly in the  cake tin.
Now pour the cake batter in the tin. After the cake has baked, simply pull it out by holding the butter paper.

# Non stick cake tin - 

Non stick cake tin are the another category of cake tin. They also come in different shapes like round,  square,  heart etc. 

How to grease a nonstick cake tin? 

One benefit non stick cake tins have over aluminium cake tins, is that they don't need greasing. The cake batter can be  directly poured into the cake tin.

# Special kinds of cake tin -

Now there are some  unique cake tins. They are generally  not used by people unless and until they are truly fond of baking. They are used for making unique shaped cakes. For instance,  -  Look at this cake tin below. Isn't the cake baked in this tin beautiful? 

Source -  Pinterest

There are many other types of unique cake tins. For instance, if you are making a cake for children, you can opt for cake tins that come in the shape of a cartoon character. 

Source -  Pinterest

You can easily buy cake tins like these online. Disney princess themed cake tins,  winnie the pooh themed cake tin, mickey mouse themed cake tin etc are the some easily available cake tins for children themed cake. 

One of my favourite cake tin is pictured below. See it's so easy to use and after the cake has been baked, you get already cut slices. Isn't it nice?  You can pour in different cake batters in different slices. You can decorate each cake slice  in a different way. 

Source -  Pinterest 

Loaf cake tin is also a type of cake tin. It is used for baking breads or for making loaf cakes. You can buy it for giving your  cake a different shape. 

Source -  Pinterest 

So these are some of the unique cake tins. There are many more such cake tins. You can look for them online or in shops that solely deal in baking.
