Cakes usually fall into two classes, those with butter and those without. Butter cakes use butter or other fats that are usually creamed with sugars, but liquid oils may also be used in some cakes. These cakes, using oils, are usually the one-bowl varieties.
Prepare the following ingredients: 1 tablespoon of baking soda, peeled cucumber, teaspoon apple cider vinegar, 1 piece of egg white, 1 teaspoon of ground oatmeal, 1 tablespoon honey, food processor and a bowl. Put all ingredients into the food processor. Blend thoroughly until texture is smooth. Apply the mixture on the face and leave for 20 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water.
Relieve heart burn. Baking soda is an effective way to relieve heart burn and indigestion. The common problem for heart burn is acid. Baking soda is the opposite of acid, it is an antacid, which makes it effective in reducing heart burn. Stir 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda into 1/2 cup of water and drink for a safe and effective antacid.
Soak your hands for 25 minutes in the solution. It’s important that the water is warm or hot so your pores really open up. You want the baking soda to penetrate your skin. During that time, intermittenly grab the clumps of baking soda at the bottom of the pan or bowl and rub your hands together to really saturate them in the solution.
Pre-heat the Oven – The oven should be per-heated at the recommended temperature while you are mixing the ingredients. The baking powder starts working as soon as it hits the wet ingredients. Every second that you delay actual baking after mixing the ingredients, you lose the magic of baking powder. For best results, keep the oven ready by pre-heating it and working quickly once the ingredients have been mixed together.
Baking tools and supplies are needed for baking. Aside from having an oven you will need other materials in order to start baking. Measuring cups and spoons are needed to get exact measurements of ingredients needed. An electric mixer will make putting all the ingredients together and mixing them an easier task. If no electric mixer in available you can use spatulas, wooden spoons and mixing bowls to mix the ingredients together. Baking pans and baking trays are where you will put the batter before placing in the over. Rolling pins are needed to flatten the dough and take bubbles away.
Thankfully, I love to experiment with food so leaving my old ways of baking behind isn’t too painful. I could buy a bunch of cookbooks and follow someone else’s recipes, but where’s the creativity in that? I’ll post recipes on my website as I get them written down. In the meantime, here’s to baking without guilt!
