Baking Tips

* When whipping heavy cream always whip in a stainless steel bowl.
Aluminum bowls will cause the cream to turn grayish in color and
the cream will taste metallic.

* Self rising flour is a mixture of 1-1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
plus 1/2 teaspoon of salt per cup flour.

* Use one Tablespoon (3 teaspoons) of regular active dry yeast to
replace cake yeast in recipes.

* When making a cake, have all of your ingredients at room

* You should leave 2 inches of space between the oven walls and your
baking sheet for good circulation.

* Substitute 3/4 cup cocoa (unsweetened) and 1/4 cup Crisco for
4 squares (ounces) of chocolate.
