20 of the most impressive baking recipes to try this weekend

25 Aug 2016

There are so many fun and fabulous baking recipes on Food24 that it would be a crime not to share them with you. And now that the Olympics are over, you (hopefully) have more time to spend in the kitchen.

Tired of the saying that ‘baking is a science’ ? I find it often puts many people off (perhaps there’s an assumption that one needs a PhD in chemistry or something?). Well – that’s not true! And now baking has become more popular than ever before, with new-age techniques and ingredients that introduce a breath of fresh air to the sometimes old-school perception that baking is done by old ladies who sells rusks at the local tuisnywerheid.

Just take Alice Toich as an example. A young, vibrant artist and baker who has a flair for injecting elements of sexiness and pizzazz into the baking realm. Read our interview with her here. Also, do yourself a favour and check out Nikki Albertyn's Instagram feed for out of this world baking inspiration!
