Define: Mummy Baking? :)

"Mummy Baking" is a blog about mummies cooking food by dry heat without direct exposure to a flame (as that would be dangerous!). Most baking done by mummies is in an oven (or very occasionally on hot surfaces like ashes or stones!) 

I love my Neff oven (Model U1564) and have owned it for over 6 years. Having a reliable oven is essential mummy technology!

I have to confess that I have never quite got around to cooking bread but am willing to give it a go. I mostly cook cakes, puddings, tarts, pies, quiches, cookies, biscuits, scones, pastries and evening meals.

I have found that most bought baked goods never seem to taste as good as home cooked. 

I prefer cooking baked goods at home so I can control the ingredients. I am not keen on the "extras" which some commercial bakeries add - preservatives, colourings, flavourings, additives etc.

The art of baking is fundamental for good family nutrition and I believe home baking is an important skill for all mummies and family members. I hope you enjoy reading my blog.
