Baking For Beginners - put on those mittens!!

Have been wanting to put together a baking event for sometime now. With the festive season on, thought it is the best time to take out those freshly baked goodies right out of the oven. I have been a very cautious baker, by that what I mean is that baking has really not been my forte but would definitely like to take a step ahead. Baking to me was always get everything perfect, have to do it all right, probably that's one reason that has kept me away from it. However, beginning my food blog and interacting with such marvelous bakers has given me that much needed strength to put on those mittens and get started. Although I do have a really long way to go.

I thought there are probably many like me who have been watching the wonderful goodies come out of the oven and wished quietly that some day they would do it too. This event is a step towards that. A place where beginners can set their first foot into the baking world and of course then plunge in head long. You can send in your simple, easy recipe for any of your baked delights be it the popular cake, muffins,au gratins or just about anything you feel is a great way to get started with baking.

All you have to do is:
1- Send in a mail to vandanarajesh2@gmail.com with details -your name, blog name, blog url, post url and a pic of your baked goodie.
2- You can send in as many entries as you like till the end of Jan in fact Jan 31, 2009.
3- Make a mention of the event on your blog and link back to this blog post and you are on your way to inspiring many others to get started with "Baking".
Looking forward to ringing in the New Year with some yummy treats:)
Here are some of my recipes that would surely be of help to beginners
1- Tasty Vanilla cake
2-Delicious apple cake
3- Easy banana bread
4-Hommade pizza
