Nothing tops homemade baked goods — the extra time and attention that goes into them really does make all the difference. Plus, there’s nothing quite as satisfying as making yummy cakes, cookies, and pies at home.

Though your cooking creations may not always turn out perfectly, some of the best home bakers know that practice makes perfect, and that tiny little adjustments can make a big difference.

Adding a little bit more or less of an ingredient can completely alter the outcome of your baked good, taking it from flat and dense to fluffy and flavorful.

For example, one easy baking hack to keep in your back pocket is to switch butter out for Crisco shortening when you’re whipping up a homemade cake. You will greatly improve the texture of your cake batter by simply using Crisco, making it thicker and fluffier, which will in turn make each bite that much more delicious.

This brilliant baking hack is just one of many that you can try in your own kitchen to take your cookies, cakes, and pies to a whole new level.

Baking can be so fun and rewarding, and knowing a few simple tricks will make life in the kitchen easier… meaning you can spend more time gobbling up the benefits!
