Q: Baking recipes?
I’m looking for recipes that don’t take long, and that don’t cost to much money to get the ingredients. Mainly baking recipes like cookies and cakes.

A: Welfare Cake

“This cake is so moist that you would swear it was from a box!”
Original recipe yield: 1 – 9×13 inch pan.

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups white sugar

Hey all!

I have recently started to bake (I’m 20) and I love it! I’ve done things like brownies, cupcakes, cakes like tiramisu and etc.

I would love to get some new recipes from you bakers out there. I love chocolate so chocolatey recipes are much welcomed! I would love to hear any and all recipes!

Please don’t give me links to recipe websites, I know these exist! What I am asking for is people’s favorite recipes or recipes that are very popular amongst their family and friends or even something original! Thanks again!! :)

A: Hey! First off, congrats on starting baking- I fell into it years ago the same way you have and I still can’t stop-it’s so much fun!

I wonder if you have tried cheesecakes or even apple turnovers? I love both of these; the apple turnovers especially, are fun to make. I can’t find the exact recipe that worked so well, and I don’t want to give you one that might fall flat, so I’ll just say this: the best recipe for apply turnover uses a simple, easy cream cheese dough with an egg wash over the turnovers before you put them in the oven.

But as for cheesecake, I do, in fact, have a recipe for a really, really good one:

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake:


* 1 cup chocolate cookie crumbs (I use oreos, which worked great)
* 3 tablespoons white sugar
* 1/4 cup butter, melted
* 1 (10 ounce) package frozen raspberries (I personally dislike raspberries, but they rock in here)
* 2 tablespoons white sugar
* 2 teaspoons cornstarch
* 1/2 cup water
* 2 cups white chocolate chips
* 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
* 3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
* 1/2 cup white sugar
* 3 eggs
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. In a medium bowl, mix together cookie crumbs, 3 tablespoons sugar, and melted butter. Press mixture into the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan.
2. In a saucepan, combine raspberries, 2 tablespoons sugar, cornstarch, and water. Bring to boil, and continue boiling 5 minutes, or until sauce is thick. Strain sauce through a mesh strainer to remove seeds.
3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). In a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, melt white chocolate chips with half-and-half, stirring occasionally until smooth.
4. In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time. Blend in vanilla and melted white chocolate. Pour half of batter over crust. Spoon 3 tablespoons raspberry sauce over batter. Pour remaining cheesecake batter into pan, and again spoon 3 tablespoons raspberry sauce over the top. Swirl batter with the tip of a knife to create a marbled effect.
5. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until filling is set. Cool, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 8 hours before removing from pan. Serve with remaining raspberry sauce.

Oh, as far as the cheesecake goes, here’s a tip: in any cheesecake, do not EVER use lowfat cream cheese.. Trust me, it won’t work out well. Also, make sure the cream cheese is as soft as you can get it, because otherwise you may have some trouble.

Good luck all the recipes you’ll be trying out!
Have fun!

P.S.: I got the recipe for this cheesecake originally from my friend, but I love it so much and have made it myself multiple times, so I figured maybe it’s okay that it’s on a website, too :-) .

Q: Baking Recipes?
Im looking for the absolute best backing recipes, and also an uncopyrighted name for my company. any ideas?

A: To find recipes go to, they have almost anything and almost all recipes are free.

Q: Does anyone know of any really good baking recipes?
I really want to do some baking tomorrow like cakes, pies, or anything that has sugar and is baking. If you know of any good recipes can you tell me, please?

A: Sweet ‘n’ Spicy Lebkuchen

These cookies hail from Germany and were traditionally sweetened with honey, but that has now been substituted with molasses. They have all the spice of a gingersnap and a texture that’s tender and chewy.I’m suer you’ll enjoy baking them.
Merry Christmas!

1 cup almonds
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup unsulfured molasses
1 large egg
Finely grated zest of 1 orange
1/2 cup dark raisins
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped crystallized ginger (optional)
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
Confectioners’ sugar, for glaze
Toast the almonds in a medium-size nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 6 minutes and set them aside.
With an electric mixer set on medium speed, beat together the brown sugar, honey, molasses, egg, and orange zest in a mixing bowl until smooth.
Combine the almonds, raisins, and crystallized ginger, if you’re using it (for extra zip), in a food processor. Pulse repeatedly to finely chop the mixture. (You can also finely chop the ingredients by hand.) Stir the nut mixture into the sugar mixture.
Sift the flour, baking soda, spices, and salt into a separate medium-size bowl. Then stir the dry mixture into the liquid a third at a time, stirring well after each addition. The dough will be quite dense and sticky.
Scrape the dough onto a well-floured 3-foot-long sheet of plastic wrap. Generously flour the dough. Then, using floured hands, knead the dough several times to smooth it. Flatten the dough into a 1-inch-thick square and wrap it in the plastic. Slide the dough into a plastic bag or wrap it in aluminum foil and chill it until firm, several hours or overnight.
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet (preferably not a dark one) with parchment or lightly greased aluminum foil. Set the sheet aside. Transfer the dough to a generously floured sheet of waxed paper and roll it into a 1/4-inch-thick rectangle or square. Cut the dough into cookies that measure about 2 inches square.
Transfer the squares to the baking sheet, spacing them about an inch apart. Bake the cookies on the center oven rack for 12 to 13 minutes, 1 sheet at a time. When done, the cookies will have formed a crust, but they should still feel soft to the touch. (Tip: The cookies stay chewier if you bake them less and put them in an airtight container while they’re still slightly warm. If your family prefers a crisper cookie, just bake them a little longer and let them cool completely before you store them.) Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and, while they are still quite warm, dredge them in confectioners’ sugar. When they’ve cooled completely, dredge them once more. Makes about 18 to 24 cookies.

Q: What are some easy vegan baking recipes?
My friend and i are trying to bake something but she is a vegan. We are looking for some vegan baking recipes that don’t need things like soy milk and egg replacers. Please Help!

A: Baklava are delectable flaky and nutty sweets from the middle east. I LOVED baklava, but traditionally, the layers of phyllo dough are brushed with butter, and the pastries are also soaked in honey *frowns* HOWEVER, there is way to make vegan-friendly baklava without the butter and honey! Yay! You and your friend will enjoy these sinful treats. They’re like candy and pastry wrapped into one.

Q: What does sour cream do in baking recipes?
Some recipes I have in a baking cookbook call for sour cream. What exactly does sour cream do in the recipe?

A: Well if you are meaning for cakes, etc. It brings a fabulous extra moistness and tang to is a very good addition.

Q: Why is apple cider vinegar used in a lot of gluten free baking recipes?
My family has to go gluten free and we have noticed a lot of baking recipes ask for apple cider vinegar. We don’t like the taste and we would love not to use it, but for the moment, we are wondering why it is used.

A: You can go to <-
That site lists almost all Recipes.
Not only the recipe you are looking for but also other popular recipes.

Q: Any good websites with baking recipes?
I’m planning on baking for a movie night and stuff. We’re teens, planning on watching a bunch of movies and having a surprise bday party in the process. Does anybody have good baking websites they use to get recipes?

A: Kitchen tested and I’ve never had a failure-

Q: what are some good and simple baking recipes?
Could anyone please give me a simple recipe for a baking idea. Something not so time consuming. If anyone has invented their own baking recipes I would love to get a hold of one.
Thank you.

A: This banana bread is superb:

Q: Does anyone have any low sugar baking recipes?
I was wondering if anyone had any low sugar recipes or recipes that contain fruit sugar, as I love baking but am not suppose to have sugar.
Thanks :)

A: You could actually go on, they have all sorts of recipes with low sugar. You could always replace sugar in recipes with Splenda. My grandmother is a diabetic and she loves her splenda baked goods!!!

Q: what purpose does salt serve in baking recipes?
I see salt required in most baking recipes. Being that i’m following a low sodium diet – a few times i’ve left the salt out all together and everything seemed to come out perfect. So i’m curious what role does salt play in baking recipes? Is it just for taste – i mean how much taste could 1 teaspon of salt add to a recipe? Or is there perhaps some other function? dhanyawad

A: You can leave it out but baking soda and poweder have tons of sodium.

Q: What are some good baking recipes that are quick to make?
I love to bake but don’t always have hours to make a single apple pie! What are some great recipes that i could bake in about an hour or two?

A: Chocolate Turnovers

prep time: 5 minutes
bake time 20 minutes

Puff pastry sheets bought from the grocer.
Thaw according to directions. Cut into six or eight squares. Lay a piece of chocolate on each square. Fold to make a triangle, use a fork to seal. Brush with a beaten egg. Bake according to package directions for time and temp.

Q: Is it better to use salted or unsalted butter for baking recipes?
I’m thinking of baking some cookies for Thanksgiving. However, I don’t know
whether to use salted or unsalted butter. Which butter would you recommend to
use? My best friend’s mom said it depends if the recipe calls for either the salted or unsalted

Thanks for your answers.

A: I use unsalted when baking since most baking recipes already ask for salt in the recipe. You can use salted butter, but if you do, cut down the salt in the recipe.

Q: Baking Recipes Using a Toaster Oven?
Does anybody have any simple baking recipes for toaster ovens? I’m sort of new to baking and would like to start out with something small and simple before moving on to using a real oven. Thanks a lot!

A: You can try making bagel pizza’s like the bagel bites or you can start off with cake mix or brownie mix and put them into small cupcake holder papers, exactly how you would bake cupcakes except you buy smaller cupcake paper things and just pop them into the toaster oven, but make sure the timing is not too long or it’ll turn out terribly. I’ve done it many times for kid’s parties and they love it. You can decorate them after, it makes a nice presentation. Everyone will love them!
