Baking with Robin Hood

Ha! We probably got you wondering with the title of this post. But no, there are no men in tights or outlaws here. We're talking about  Robin Hood Flour and their range of products, which we've made various yummy treats (snowmen macarons; dulce strawberry, peach, and mango cobbler; and buttermilk biscuits). Robin Hood has been working hard on redesigning their website and we wanted to share with you that it's here! The new website is live and ready for you to explore!
We were lucky enough to be sent a preview of their Bake Class feature during their construction stages. We watched this lovely video (also available in French) about making pie crust. There's this charming and leisurely mood about the instructions and it'll surely calm any baking trepidations you may have.
We also like this page on tips and tricks. Just a few basics and secrets about pie crusts that will help you along the way. If you're anything like Howard's sister-in-law, having photos for every step of the way is highly appreciated. Or if you deem yourself a seasoned baker, you might still learn a few things. We didn't know that chilling your pie crust before filling it would help prevent soggy pie crust!
One of the great sections of the website is the one where you make memories with your family. We started baking with my lil cousin once he was able to handle and operate an ice cream scoop (to help divide the batter into the cupcake liners). Now that we have a goddaughter, we can't wait for her to be old enough to bake with us in the kitchen!

Included in the recipes are tips and activities for the kids to learn and experience. There are so many easy ways to include kids in the kitchen! Have them pick out cupcake liners and line the baking pans, have kids count the number of stirs it takes for the batter to be well-mixed, or have them roll dough in sprinkles or cinnamon sugar.
The recipe collection is categorized into useful lists so that you know which ones are the most viewed by the community, or if you're looking for something seasonal.
We also like that all of their recipe booklets are available for downloading and printing. So this was just a brief introduction, take a look the new Robin Hood Baking Centre website and let us know what you think!
