I often get asked the question… “what is your favourite thing to bake?” You would think that as somebody who loves baking so much that I would have a definitive answer to this question on standby at all times… but I have to confess, I really have no idea what my favourite thing to bake is.
I don’t know why, but I find the fact that I don’t have an answer to this seemingly simple questions super concerning. I mean I am constantly making claims about my love and passion for baking, and yet I can’t tell you what my favourite thing to bake is…What does this say about me exactly? That I don’t really have a true passion for baking? That I am secretly just a hack? These are the questions that circle in my mind every time somebody asks me this question and I come up blank.
Okay, so maybe I’m reading a little (a lot) too much into this, but I think that the reason why I don’t have a definitive answer is honestly because I truly just love to bake everything. Whether it be cookies, layer cakes, muffins, scones, loafs, cheesecakes, brownies, cupcakes, pies, pastries – As long as something starts with butter and sugar that I can whip into a fluffy frenzy, I am officially in baking heaven.
