Dec 2, 2017

During the holidays baking for the family is always a must. If baking doesn’t come easy for you or if you want to take your baking to the next level this is the post for you. Here are some helpful and easy to read charts that will make you become an baking expert that was written by SimpleMost. From frosting flavors to the perfect chocolate chip cookies these handy graphics can serve as a great reference for you in the kitchen during the holidays. 

1.The Perfect Chocolate Cookies

If you’ve ever baked a batch of chocolate chip cookies, only to have them turn out flat or crumbly, look no further. The folks over at Handle the Heat created this nifty chocolate chip cookie guide that explains why there’s such variation. Melted butter produces cookies with shiny, crackled tops and crisp edges, while chilling the dough before baking will create a chewier, more cake-like cookie..

2. Baking Conversion Chart

It pays to be precise when you’re baking. If you follow food bloggers from other parts of the world, this chart from The Java Cupcake can help you decipher metric measurements for flour, sugar, butter and cream.

3.  Baking Temperature Comparison

One of the keys to baking the perfect cake is oven temperature. Summer Stone at The Cake Blog baked a handful of cakes at various temperatures to demonstrate the difference a few degrees makes. Her chart shows the difference between a cake baked at 300 degrees (light, fluffy with a pale outer crust) and one baked at 400 degrees (dark outer crust, rougher texture).

4. Guiding To Baking Cinnamon Rolls

Here’s an easy way to impress your friends or your significant other at breakfast: homemade cinnamon rolls. And with this handy chart from Rj Zaworski, you’ll never go back to the pre-made rolls from a tube!

5. Egg Replacement Chart

There are a number of ingredients you can use to replace eggs in your recipes, including peanut butter, banana and applesauce. Going vegan, or simply cutting eggs out of your diet, doesn’t mean you have to stop baking, according to Swanson Health Products. (This also comes in handy if you plan to bake something but realize you are out of eggs!)

6. Cut A Recipe In Half

It sounds simple enough, but cutting a recipe in half sometimes proves difficult. If you get tripped up on the conversion between cups, tablespoons and teaspoons, this chart from He and She Eat Clean can help.

7. Types Of Sugar

This chart from Illustrated Bites is super useful if you’re curious about all the types of sugar you’ll encounter when baking. Learn about muscovado sugar, which is used in most gingerbread recipes, and maple syrup, which can be used as a replacement for granulated sugar.
