“The holidays are here and since I tend to cook for about a week leading up to the big day, any tip or trick that makes the multitude of hours spent in the kitchen go by a little quicker is what I like. One of the biggest comments I hear about Simply Ardynn is how SIMPLE the recipes are and that the included Cooking Tips allow even a novice, home chef to produce amazing dishes they normally wouldn’t even attempt” says Michael Harris-Arzon, The Simplistic Professional

They say ‘The Devil’s in the details’.  That doesn’t mean that it should be more work.  I used to always bake cakes completely from scratch.  That is, until I realized the number of steps I could skip… if I used a prepared cake mix and added the extras.

Baking is a very precise process.  The ingredients MUST be measured out exactly or the end result could be disastrous.  That is because baking relies on the chemical interactions of the various ingredients in order to work.  Just a pinch too much of baking powder will make your cake as dense as a rock.

For that reason, using prepared mixes are ideal for those that don’t bake often.  Simply follow the instructions on the box and add nuts, chocolate chips, coconut or other flavors to enhance the basic nature of the cake.

Ingredients
