Baking with Betty Crocker

When I bake, I do put my heart into it, but that doesn't stop it from being a disaster every single time. I make a mess; I burn things; I break things; I get proportions of ingredients wrong, even if I religiously follow the recipe. Baking is just not a skill I have.

Thankfully, I discovered Betty Crocker and it's made my life a lot easier. I still get the fun of taking something warm and delicious out of the oven, but none of the hassle of sitting with ingredients wondering what to do with what.

I was sent a Betty Crocker set, filled with a bunch of mixing packets that really makes baking a lot easier. I've always wanted to do things such as fun cakes and biscuits, but have always hopelessly failed.
I was surprised with how many things they actually do. The fact that I can make red velvet cake with little effort makes me so happy.

I decided on starting simple and went for the chocolate chip cookies, which literally only required me to add water. It was that easy, I couldn't believe it.

While they weren't the most attractive cookies in the world, they did taste lovely. Presentation and making things look pretty isn't a strong point, but I was very happy with how these came out. They did taste really good.

I definitely recommend Betty Crocker, either if you're too busy to bake or aren't great at it, like me. Definitely makes life a lot more easier.

I think I might move onto baking the chocolate fudge cake next.

Betty Crocker's cakes have always been my go-to - I can't bake to save my life, and even if I could, her brownies have always tasted better than mine would!

I love Betty Crocker goodies, i would be lost without them :)


Looks like you have some goodies to bake. I've never used Betty Crocker, because my mum always made her own baked goods. It looks great though.
