List of Essential Baking Ingredients

Butter: The job of butter in baking is to give flavor, richness, tenderness, and structure to cookies, cakes, pies, and doughs. The butter also helps to create a light, tender texture in cake batter that helps it rise properly.

Eggs: Eggs have so many functions in baking and cooking. They add structure, flavor, moisture, and color to recipes while also acting as a tenderizer and leavening agent.

Sugar: An essential ingredient in many dessert recipes that adds sweetness to your recipes. It also helps keep baked goods soft by locking in moisture so your dessert doesn’t dry out too quickly.

All-Purpose Flour: An essential ingredient for baking, flour provides structure and texture to baked goods. All-purpose flour is the most common variety since it’s versatile and suitable for all types of baked goods, such as cakes, biscuits, breads, cookies, muffins, etc.

Leavening Agents: baking powder and baking soda are two of the most commonly used ingredients in baking that you will need to stock up in your pantry. Both help leaven the baked goods by lightening and softening the mixture to make it rise evenly.

Brown Sugar: Adds a caramel flavor and moist texture to many desserts. Brown sugar is often used to make baked goods softer and richer and to prevent cookies and cakes from drying out.

Coconut Oil: When it comes to baking, coconut oil makes an excellent substitute for butter and other types of fat, like canola oil and vegetable oil. It often results in a lighter, less dense finished product.

Cream Cheese: Adds a unique tangy flavor and creamy texture to many dessert recipes. But cream cheese is not only good for frostings and cheesecake recipes. It can also replace butter in many cookie recipes or even pie crusts!

Milk: Whole milk has a higher fat content and is often used in baking to add richness and flavor, creating a softer crumb in bread and cakes. For non-dairy milk, oat milk and soy milk are the best alternatives as they have a thicker consistency than other plant-based milk.

Heavy Cream: Heavy cream adds moisture and richness to recipes. Whipping cream can also be used for several purposes. It’s terrific for making a whipped topping for cakes, pies, fruit cobblers, and other desserts.

Buttermilk: buttermilk is used to give baked goods a subtle tangy flavor. Because it’s acidic, it can easily break down gluten in recipes, which makes the finished product softer and more moist.

Condensed Milk: Sweetened condensed milk can help you achieve a smooth, creamy texture and a rich, decadent flavor. It’s often used to make regular and no-churn ice cream or in custards and fudge recipes.

Evaporated Milk: Bakers often use this ingredient as a substitute for cream to help reduce fat content. The richness and creaminess of evaporated milk are perfect for ice cream, custards, flan, and bread and butter puddings.

Vanilla Extract: Vanilla is the most common flavoring extract used in baking. It enhances the flavors of other ingredients like sugar and milk and can also counterbalance the smell of raw eggs.

Peanut Butter: Everyone can agree that peanut butter makes everything better, right? It’s also incredibly versatile and easy to use in baked goods and as an easy and indulgent topping for ice cream, cheesecake, and more.

Chocolate Chips: A staple ingredient in many cookie recipes, chocolate chips hold their shape better than chopped chocolate bars, which adds structure to cookies. It’s also a fun and easy topping for brownies, muffins, cookie bars, and much more.

Milk Chocolate: A delicious chocolate perfect for adding creaminess and sweetness to recipes. Since it’s so high in fat, milk chocolate is easier to use in no-bake recipes such as sauces or as a topping for pre-baked treats, ice cream, fillings, or icings.

Dark Chocolate: A rich and intense chocolate perfect for indulgent desserts. The extra content of cacao makes it ideal for brownies, frostings, sauces, and mousse recipes.

White Chocolate: White chocolate chips are perfectly stirred into the cookie dough to add pockets of melting sweetness when baked. It’s also great for frostings, glazes, or just extra decadent desserts and sweet treats.

Dried Fruits: Raisins, dried cranberries, apricots, and other dried fruits are all great ingredients for baking. Add it to homemade granolas, toppings, cookies, and muffins.

Nuts: Super versatile in baking, nuts add texture and flavor to various dessert recipes, not to mention a boost of nutrients. Stock up on almonds, walnuts, pecans, and hazelnuts for your next baking project!

Cocoa Powder: A staple ingredient for many desserts, cocoa powder, adds chocolate flavor and a deep dark color to baked goods such as brownies, cookies, cakes, and other recipes.

Almond Flour: A gluten-free flour that is perfect for many dessert recipes. Almond flour also adds flavor and richness to baked goods, providing extra (healthy) fats and moisture.
