Late to the game but so happy!

I love baking and being in the kitchen and though I have known about Bake From Scratch and all the related bakers on Instagram for a while, I somehow missed the boat on this podcast. I love it! It totally fills my need to think about baking and to learn more about the craft 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

A Must-Listen for All Bakers!

If you love baking and want to absorb as much knowledge as you can on the topic, listen to this podcast! The hosts are so fun to listen to and the guest line-up is star-studded. My only complaint is that it’s not weekly - like with sweet treats, I’m kind of insatiable! LISTEN!

Not much usable content; mostly hawking bob’s red mill

Listening to the poundcake episode, which is 30 minutes long. After fifteen minutes, they still haven’t started discussing the recipe or technique. Instead, they’ve talked generally about liking to eat poundcake, and they’ve name dropped their sponsor at least 10 times.

If you want cooking/baking advice, better to go with Milk Street, Splendid Table, or one of the many other pods devoted to advice and instruction.
