You probably would like to bake more, but it sounds daunting. Maybe you do not even know where to start. You love the idea of spoiling your friends and family, but you do not have the time. At least not Monday through Friday. Here are 10 of my favorite tried-and-true tips that are guaranteed to save you time and ensure you reach for the measuring cup every weekend.

7. Soaking For Success

10 Time-Saving Baking Hacks
If raisins are called for in a recipe, try plumping them first. Measure the amount of raisins required by the recipe, cover with very hot water (not boiling) and allow them to soak and plump for 2 to 5 minutes.

8. Rockin’ Raisins

9. Raisin Ratio

10 Time-Saving Baking Hacks
Raisins often sink to the bottom of the cake batter. When adding raisins to batter, stir only 1/4 of the recipe amount into the batter. Pour the batter into your pan and topit with the reserved raisins.

10. Floating Fruit
