Most people assume that my kitchen is overflowing with every manner of gadget, tool and gizmo designed to “help” the home baker.

There's nothing better than a house that smells like cake. Wouldn't you agree? Baking is sort of magic - the slow process of stirring the batter, thekitchen becoming saturated with enticing whiffs of chocolate and cinnamon, watching the dough rise in the oven and finally feeling content with the gorgeous outcome. For bakers, baking is more than a means to an end, it's a way of life. You start off withbutter and eggs, and end up with a batch of heavenly brownies.
After the oven, the freezer can be one of the most valuable appliances in your kitchen when it comes to baking.
