Expert Tips from Hotpoint for National Baking Week

It’s National Baking Week, which means it’s time to gather your apron, rolling pin and ingredients to rustle up some delicious treats, bakes and sweets.

Whilst appliances play an important role when it comes to baking, it’s equally important to be well prepared, and to pay attention to the smaller details, in order to create attractive, flavoursome and tasty bakes. Major domestic appliance manufacturer, Hotpoint, has sought out expert advice from some of the UK’s top bakers to help you become a budding baker in your very own kitchen.

Katie Rowlands, Green’s Cakes, says: “For maximum flavour, it’s important to be accurate when you bake. For truly extraordinary desserts, cakes, and loaves, the love is all in the detail. So you should measure and include your ingredients precisely and try not to open the oven door while your goods are baking.”

According to Siobhan Dolan of Viva!, the UK’s leading vegan charity, “cakes are best made from room temperature ingredients.” You should “try not to over-stir your batter – just make sure it’s thoroughly combined” and when it comes to baking, “check the oven temperature is correct before putting your bread/cake in”. Hotpoint recommends that you familiarise yourself with your oven and whether it needs to be preheated. For example, some programmes on the Hotpoint Class 6 built-in single oven (SI6 874 SH IX) have a preheating phase. The oven will display when the preheating phase has been activated and an audible signal will sound when the oven has reached the set temperature.

Once your cake is in the oven, an important tip from former Great British Bake-Off contestant, Val Stones, is: “I listen to my cakes to hear whether they are baked. The cake should not be silent, if it is, it is over baked. Instead, it should crackle a little. If you take the cake out at this point the heat in the cake will continue to bake it for a further two minutes which is why you should let a cake stand for two to four minutes, in order for the cake to come to rest.”

Kimberley Garner, Hotpoint Brand Manager, adds: “Hotpoint cooking appliances are there to serve as a trusted partner in the kitchen, protecting you from potential cooking failures, and supporting you in baking delicious creations.”

Induction hobs can really help you up your baking game as they provide easy-to-use functions and flexible options to make cooking a reliable, efficient and pleasurable experience. The Hotpoint black glass 60 cm induction hob (TS 5760F NE) benefits from My Menu, which features four automatic programmes to prevent pans from boiling over, or food sticking to the bottom of the pan. This includes a melting function that sets the ideal temperature for melting ingredients such as chocolate or butter, very gently, without the risk of burning it.

“Our appliances offer guidance through uncertainty and protection from mishaps, helping bakers achieve delicious results whilst enjoying baking new recipes at home”, adds Kimberley.

Katie Rowlands, Green’s Cakes, concludes: “Another great thing about baking is that some of the most impressive results are very simple at heart. You don’t have to do anything overly complex for it to be great-tasting and look wonderful.”  Katie adds: “A spice cake, with a dollop of ice cream on top, is just as enjoyable to eat as a multi-layered spectacle that took hours to prepare. You can often jazz up desserts or treats with something extremely easy, such as a drizzle of caramel sauce. Keep it nice and simple and nothing can go wrong.”

Are you ready to get baking but need some inspiring recipes to help you get started? Check out Hotpoint’s tasty cheesecake:

Ingredients:
280g of biscuits
100g of butter
Three medium eggs
100g of caster sugar
280g of ricotta cheese
Wild berry jam (you can also use blackberry, blueberry, or raspberry jam)

Method:
Crumble the biscuits into a bowl.
Melt the butter and add it to the biscuits.
Line the bottom of a cake tin with greaseproof paper and pour the mixture into the tin, lightly pressing it down over the base.
Beat the eggs, sugar and ricotta together and spread this mixture over the biscuit base. Bake in the oven and then allow to cool. Glaze with the jam.

If you have a Hotpoint oven with the Chef Menu function, you can select ‘DESSERT’ from the ‘RECIPES’ menu, then choose the ‘CHEESECAKE’ recipe and confirm.
