Baking from scratch can suck up a lot of time and attention for most people, and can be downright impossible for working mothers.
I've compiled a list of basic baking recipes that can be made at the last minute using only pantry staples, as well as a short article on advice for building and maintaining a baking pantry. I've also included ideas for variations using extra ingredients, or "upgraded" versions, for when there's time to shop.
I am a trained pastry chef with three years of bakery experience. I have often put amazing baked goods together from ingredients pulled from my pantry. I would love to share this ability with other busy moms.
