Until recently I had never done a lot of baking but I really am enjoying it. I am always looking for tips to help me with my baking.  My friend Sheila has given me tips and has helped me a lot.  Here are few tips that I have found to be helpful when baking.  

Have all ingredients at room temperature for best results.

Use cocoa instead of flour for dusting a greased pan when making a chocolate cake.

Toss nuts, raisins and chopped fruits in flour first. This will help keep them suspended in batters.
