Re cap of Fire up Your Oven April Baking Mega Marathon


To put it simply, baking is fully cooking food in an oven. Yes, this is what we did when Valli announced the event Fire up your oven. This was a month long marathon where we posted everyday. Just about anything can be baked, including breads, cakes, bars, muffins...even vegetables, though I haven't done any savory bakes, I must admit we had a good team of friends who have made some amazing bakes. And we have a good team captain, Valli who organizes these marathons to keep us on our toes.

Baking requires perfect temperature, perfect time depending on the dish that is baked. We have a variety of ovens to bake in, basically it is the dry heat which helps in baking. 

As soon as we talk of baking, I think of breads, cakes, brownies, muffins. now most of these bakery products are like cousins, with a little variation the concept changes. 

For the month of April I divided my bakes into five categories, one each for a week. Again these categories were subdivided. End of every week I have a Baking related post where you have some tips, conversion chart, egg substitutes and cake trouble shooters.

Here is a recap of this monthly event where you have all the bakes at one place. Most of these are healthy bakes , where I have used wheat flour, oats, brown sugar etc.

Week  2 - Tea Cakes
