In winter we want nothing more than cuddly days indoors with a good book, a cuppa tea and the oven on full blast, cooking up a yummy meal, or if the occasion calls for it, a sweet treat!
As usual, you can find a proverbial tonne of recipes for winter in this month's issue (get it from BHG Shop here), but getting the right tools to help you on your wintry baking way is pretty important.
Don't let the name dissuade you, these reusable silicone gigantic cookie pans aren't just for cookies. You can use them to make cakes, flans and tarts, too! They're a gift with purchase in this month's issue from supermarkets, but you can get your own from BHG Shop right here...
You can't very well work with pastry without the right tool to roll it out. Too bad all the traditional rolling pins are a little too classic, which is where this 'bakeball' bat rolling pin comes in. You'll master all your ovenly efforts each time, they'll be an undeniable home run. Get yours here from BHG Shop.
Because no one can tell the difference between 180g of flour, or 250g, just by sight, you need the tools to sort you out straight from the outset. These levelling spoons will do that for you, making each batch brilliant. There's a video of how they work below and you can get your own from BHG Shop right here.
Time is of the essence
It's nice to have the heat from the oven whirring away, filling the house with delicious smells and nice, cosy warmth, but you don't to burn whatever you've slaved over, so investing in a precise timer is a must. Good thing this one is as much of a decorative piece as it is functional! Get it on BHG Shop.
