Considering that I'm doing a month of baking, I had no trouble coming up with photo ideas for this month's In My Kitchen!
You'll be seeing a collection of items that I find handy to keep on hand when baking.
All bakers need supplies. One of these days I'm going to remove the "plain flour" sticker and replace it with one that says "SR WM Flour" as our home never uses white flour anymore.
This shelf's not quite as well organised as my dried fruit & nut shelf that is arranged alphabetically - but that's because I like to keep the products that are similar together.
I love these cork mats that are available from Ikea. They are great to use when removing baked goods from the oven, which I don't want to put directly onto our kitchen bench.
Mixing bowls. A must!
I enjoy using these glass ones as I can see when everything is mixed together well.
Pink and purple kitchen utensils are far more enjoyable to cook with than black or wooden ones you know ;-)
I would add to the photo measuring cups - but you've already seen all the ones I own!
I mix most of my baked goods by hand, but occasionally I like to use our electric mixer. This mini one that I picked up cheap has lasted nearly 10 years so far! Sure, it doesn't work as well as the big mixers on a stand, and yes sometimes it's a little hard to add other ingredients whilst holding the mixer, but for the small amount of space it takes up and the price saving, I'm definitely not complaining!!!
These scales from Tupperware are fantastic. I love the ability to reset the weighed ingredients back to zero in order to add further ingredients (handy for brain-blur moments). It also has a great conversion chart on the front - however I don't believe that the scales currently available from Tupperware do.
And of course, we all need a kitchen timer :-)
I like to use silicone bake-ware as I find that most of our baked items then don't need to use oil-spray. They are also wonderfully easy to clean.
A cookbook stand. I would be lost without this in my kitchen!
Although I probably only cook from a cookbook about once a month, I love using this stand when I do!
It keeps the book open and clear of splashes and other cooking marks.
What kitchen items do you use when you bake?
