Hello and welcome, it’s so nice to have you here!
My name is Sarah and I’m a bake-o-holic (in case you hadn’t already guessed).
I’m certainly no professional baker, but I have managed to learn several science secrets over the years like why sometimes our cakes can sink (and what to do about it), or how to make the perfect cafe style muffins and some awesome baking hacks that make baking that much easier.
Here you will find many tasty (and well tested) recipes to add to your baking repertoire as well as handy baking secrets that will help you learn more about the science of baking. Baking is a science after all!
I’ve loved to bake for as long as I can remember. I was fortunate to grow up in a home where my mum let me and my siblings ‘reign free’ in the kitchen (as long as we didn’t eat all the chocolate chips). This meant that we were able to get crafty and experiment making delicious treats to satisfy our overly strong sweet-tooth. Making lemon citrus slice, chocolate fudge or chocolate ‘truffles’ from pure chocolate icing soon became a Saturday afternoon ritual which
may have definitely accounted for a few of the holes in our teeth.
Please, make yourself at home.
A little bit more about me:
My husband Kevin and I just moved back to New Zealand after spending two years in the Czech Republic, which you can learn more about here. We welcomed our baby girl Isla into the world April 6th this year and we are completely in love with her.
Unfortunately Kevin doesn’t have a sweet-tooth like mine, which usually means I end up having to eat a lot of baking. It’s not so bad.
Have you got a burning baking question that has been bothering you? Perhaps I can help. Send me a message below, I’d love to hear from you.
