I exclusively use Domino® Sugar for all my baking! It’s the very best in sugar and it’s widely available at grocery stores, making it super easy for me to grab what I need when I need it. I’m a huge fan of the varieties of sugar Domino® has available, too. These varieties help make my baking super flavorful and their quality helps recipes come out perfectly on a consistent basis. Here are a couple of other tips:

Start high, then go low

To achieve perfectly high domes on your muffin tops, start baking at a higher temperature (ex: 425ºF / 220ºC). After 5 minutes, reduce the temperature to the temp called for in the recipe (ex: 350ºF / 177ºC). This allows those perfectly domed tops to form on your muffins!

Every recipe should start with reading

Read through the entire recipe before beginning to bake. Sometimes baking recipes call for long overnight chilling in the fridge or periods of time where you need to allow for breads to rise or proof. Additionally, you’ll want to make sure you know what to expect and that you have all the ingredients and kitchen tools to get the job done! Take a few minutes to read through the recipe before you begin. 

Put the “pre” in preparation

Measure and prepare all your ingredients before you begin baking. This is called mise en place and it helps the process go much more smoothly while you’re baking. While you may be tempted to jump in and measure as you go, I promise you the process of baking will be much more enjoyable and easy to manage if you take a few minutes before beginning to carefully measure and prepare all your ingredients so they are at the ready as you need them.
