The Best Baking Recipes
Baking is a science, and if you have good recipes that perfect that science, and teach you the correct ways to do things, you're going to have success!
While I LOVE myself a complicated recipe with 47 steps, that's not what you'll find here! Heather Likes Food is all about simplicity and flavor, and those are the types of baking recipes you'll see below.
Breads can be difficult if you haven't made them before-- especially breads made with yeast. That's why I have a handful of bread and roll recipes there that I know you'll be able to recreate at home! My No-Knead Bread is the perfect starting point and produces a loaf of bread that tastes just like it came straight out of an artisan bread shop! I also have a few recipes for Garlic Bread that don't require you to make the bread at all! Super easy and simple!
On the other side of the spectrum from yeast breads are quick breads, that don't need yeast to make them rise. For instance, these Blueberry Muffins Made with Greek Yogurt and Banana Bread with a Sugar Crust. Both recipes are totally irresistible and really easy to make.
Let's talk dessert!
I have an abundance of sweet recipes that have proven themselves on the potluck dessert table time and time again!
Cookies-- Try these White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies for a soft, but crisp cookie stuffed with white chocolate and macadamia nuts. Or these Big, Fat Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies that taste just like the kind you get from the bakery.
Cakes-- Cakes are made for celebrations, and I have a few recipes that are easy to make and will keep your parties simple and tasty! How about this Apple Bundt Cake with Caramel Pecan Frosting? It's just as beautiful as it is delicious, too!
Pies-- And last but not least, pies are definitely my favorite form of dessert! I have a No-Fail Pie Crust Recipe that I just love, and I bet you can't guess the secret ingredient! You can use that crust recipe with this Caramel Apple Pie for a stunning dessert, OR forget baking in the oven altogether, and make this No Bake Key Lime Cheesecake for a summery and light dessert that is always a hit.
I hope you'll be able to find some awesome baking recipes here to share with the people you love! Keep scrolling to see all the dessert recipes below.
