The Pleasures of Baking
Anyone who bakes as a passion knows just how joyfully fulfilling the activity is. If you’ve always been attracted to baking but you just thought you needed a little push, it might be your lucky today. Besides, your bread machine or oven cannot bake by itself.
That smell is just lovely.
Yes, that smell can be quite enigmatic, even more so when you know it’s from your bread machine or oven. It can be apple pie, cinnamon bread or plain bread – nothing just makes your house glow with that smell of love quite like that. Studies actually say baking can cause a flood of beloved childhood memories. When you’ve started baking, you will never want your home to smell of anything else. And your bread machine or oven will brim with life that it so deserves.
Baking is unique from other types of cooking because it doesn’t need you to have any particular skill or talent. All you need is attention to detail and of course, the discipline to follow a recipe to the letter. Forget adjustments or improvisations, unless you’re ready to get a different result. Note that measurements are central to baking. It’s a scientific process, and as mentioned, you will obtain the exact delicious outcome at the end if you strictly follow the recipe. So you can’t do magic here. Just passion. And of course, your bread machine or oven.
Baked goodies can be frozen.
Once you’ve baked some nice and delicious goodies for the family or for your friends, it’s not necessary to finish everything right away. You can always freeze whatever you can’t finish, so there’s no need to worry. Anytime you feel hungry, just pull something it out of the freezer.
Baking is all about love.
Unless you’re that greedy and want all those butterscotch bars to yourself, you’ll probably want to save some for your children or for your friends at work. Baking is sharing and loving. For whatever reasons, baking brings people together. And if you’re the one who baked for everyone, it gives you a secretly amazing feeling. With your bread machine or oven by your side, you’ll feel like there’s more you want to do.
Its cost is reasonable.
Cooking meats, cheeses and all can be expensive, but not baking. Baking though is a far cry. It’s mostly just sugar, eggs and flour, plus some affordable additions here and there.
So what could possibly be keeping you? Get baking!
