Tips

Always freeze and toast nuts

Always freeze and toast nuts

Nuts stay fresh longer when stored in the freezer. Before using them in a recipe I always toast them in the over, 350 degrees for about 5 to 10 minutes just keep an eye on them and stir them a few times so they don't burn. The 5 to 10 minutes if for FROZEN nuts. If they are not frozen it may only take a few minutes. The heat helps to release the oil in the nuts which results in more flavor for your baked goods.


Dusting cake pan

Dusting cake pan

When using a cake mix recipe that calls for greasing and dusting the pan with flour, I just use a little bit of cake mix instead of flour to dust. It is more convenient and no flour residue.
