Tessa’s Top Baking Tips

Measure your flour + cocoa powder correctly

Flour and cocoa powder are all too easy to mis-measure. These ingredients can be easily compacted into a container or measuring cup without you even realizing. Too much flour can result in dry, dense, crumbly, tough and even rubbery desserts.

How to make FLUFFY pancakes

There are two keys to fluffy pancakes. First, make sure your baking powder and baking soda are FRESH. You can learn more about chemical leaveners and how to test if they’re fresh here.

Flat cookies? Make sure your butter is at a cool room temperature.

When creaming butter and sugar for cookies, always use COOL room temperature butter that’s about 67°F. If your butter is too warm and greasy, you’ll end up with flat, puddle cookies.

Also, be sure to use unsalted butter so you’re in control of the amount of salt in your cookies.
