    Default Baking tips, hacks, and secrets


    I've been exposed to baking since May 2016 and I find it really therapeutic.

    While I already know some basic baking principles, I must admit that I need to gain more knowledge about it.

    To all my fellow bakers, hope you could share in this thread some useful tips, hacks, and secrets (if possible) about baking please! 😊

    Here's mine:

    1) To make chewy cookies, use bread flour instead of all purpose
    2) To make moist red velvet cupcakes, use buttermilk, which is a mixture of milk and vinegar

    Big thanksss! 😊

    Nice thread ni sis. Mao ni sa ako nahibaw-an. Although I know pud siguro dghan na nakahibaw ani basta bakers haha

    1. You can substitute buttermilk with Yakult. 1:1 ratio
    2. To make chocolate cakes much more "chocolatier", add coffee.
    3. Using coconut oil instead of butter in cookies will give it a much more "coconut" taste and smell, mas motam-is pud gamay.

    mao pa ni ako naremember for now. haha

    Hi Sis! Really? Yakult can serve as an alternative for buttermilk? That's very interesting and I must try that soon!

    Agree on coffee making chocolate cakes taste more chocholatey! In my recipe, I use a cup of freshly brewed coffee, but inaantay ko muna mag-rest to room temperature before I put in the mixture. ��

    Haven't tried using coconut oil, puro unsalted butter pa lang ako, will try that also!

    You're welcome! Now you know why red velvets are moist and yummy! It's because of vinegar or any acid substitute like lemon, calamansi, or dayap added to the recipe. ��

    One more tip pa pala! Make sure all your ingredients are in room temperature (not hot, not warm, not cold) before you mix everything together. Makes it easier to bake. ��
