Top 3 Budget Baking Ideas to Satisfy Cravings

If you’re hungry for some baked goods, you can whip yourself up something easy in less than an hour. There are many baked goods out there that are so easy to prepare, even beginners will breeze through the recipe.

Still, baking can be very overwhelming when you don’t know what you’re doing. Many people end up buying ingredients they never use. So, instead of spending money on expensive ingredients for complicated baking recipes, here are the top 3 baking ideas for beginners.

1.     Cupcakes

Cupcakes are better than cakes for first-time bakers. Although both require the same ingredients, it’s a lot less daunting to make a few small cupcakes than making an entire cake. Besides, if all you want is to satisfy a craving, an entire cake is too time-consuming. No matter what kind of cupcake you make, you will need:

  •  Sugar
  • Butter
  •  Eggs
  •  Flour
  • Frosting

Cupcakes are also easier because you don’t have to layer them. Traditional cakes are stacked in layers, but cupcakes are one piece of cake with frosting at the top.

2.     Cookies

A classic baked dessert, cookies are the easiest thing to make. You can be a complete beginner and have a batch of edible cookies ready in less than an hour. Most cookie recipes will require:

  • Brown sugar
  • White sugar
  • Plain flour
  • Butter
  •  Eggs
  • Vanilla extract
  • Salt
  • Baking powder

One of the reasons cookies are so great at satisfying cravings is how versatile they are. You can add toppings such as chocolate chips and sprinkles or eat them plain. You can alter the ingredients to make them crispy or soft. You can even make edible cookie dough if you replace the eggs for milk and heat treat the flour to make it safe to consume.

3.     Cheesecake

Making a cheesecake is a lot easier than making a pie. All you need are the following ingredients:

  • Sour cream
  •  Cream cheese
  • Graham crackers
  • Vanilla extract

Other ingredients, such as butter or strawberry jam, are optional. If you just want to satisfy your hunger for something fast and easy, those 4 ingredients will more than do the trick. Instead of making pie dough, which requires its own set of ingredients, graham cracker crumbs are all that’s needed for the base.
