Why Home Baking?
Maybe the most important reason for baking at home is experiencing the pure joy of combining a few simple ingredients into a delicious treat and then sharing it with the people you love.
As a home baker you have total control over the type and quality of the ingredients. That means no trans fats, no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors, or any other substances that might be bad for your health.
For those with food allergies to milk, eggs, wheat, or peanuts, ingredient substitution allows you to enjoy otherwise forbidden treats.
Another big plus of home baking is that you can modify recipes to suit your own taste. Maybe you like your brownies a bit cakey rather than fudgy? Or how about adding some blueberries to your apple crumble for extra color and flavor? The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
And, last but not least, home baked goods are generally much cheaper than the ones you can buy from the bakery shop.
