Are you a beginning baker wondering what to try first? This list of 20 baking recipes for beginners is a great place to start. It’s by no means comprehensive, but I included some of my favorite desserts that anyone can make, divided into four categories: Cookies and bars, breads, cakes and pies.
Otherwise, do you want to start with a gorgeous show-stopping recipe that’s much easier than it looks and will wow friends and family? Try my most popular recipe: Pavlova. It’s an ethereal meringue with a crisp exterior and a soft, light interior.
Before you start, I also highly recommend you make your own vanilla extract. It’s easy, fun to make, and one of the most common baking ingredients.
Or, if you’re looking for tips about a specific dessert, I have helpful guides and FAQs on a variety of topics:
- A Guide to The Best Cookies
- How to Make Pie Crust
- Ice Cream 101
- Meringue FAQs
- Cake Baking and Decorating FAQs
- Homemade Bread FAQs

Lastly, don’t be afraid to make mistakes. They are part of the fun. Happy baking!Read More
