These 17 Scrumptious Baking Recipes Are Too Easy To Screw Up

If you're like me, then you struggle with buying a whole bag of flour, or sugar, or really any bag of baking supplies because you don't know how you would use the leftovers.

I spent this past year abroad in Switzerland and although I had a kitchen and a couple kitchen necessities, I never bought baking supplies because I didn't want to waste groceries or money (I would have rather spent it on traveling).

With that being said, I did figure out how to make some pretty good flourless banana muffins and became an expert at making fried eggs and oatmeal.

Sometimes cooking the same thing every week becomes boring and too routine. It doesn't matter if you're an expert baker, boxed mix fanatic or someone who has never touched a whisk before – you can bake.

Here a collection of fail-proof baking recipes that you should definitely try out.
