Baking is one of life’s simple pleasures—whether it’s cookies and biscuits for the kids or classic cakes like banana cake or chocolate cake, you’ll find the recipes here at MINDFOOD. We’ve even got Christmas and wedding cake recipes for those special occasions, scrumptious sweet and savoury muffins for school and work, and pies like pumpkin or apple pie for that special treat.

While baking requires careful measuring and precise methods, it can be fun and challenging to stretch your creative muscles and give your baked creations your own personal touch. This could mean adding some creative decorations, adding some extra layers or a little bit of a flavour that’s uniquely yours.

For cupcake lovers, most basic cake recipes can be adapted to cupcakes quite easily.
