I used to bake when the kids were younger, but now the cake tins, biscuit trays and roasting pans are stored in a plastic tub in the bottom of the pantry in the hope that one day I may feel compelled to bake that date roll or a roast dinner for a small suburb!
But really, who am I fooling?
When I have free time I don’t want to spend it cooking and cleaning up, I want to be out and about letting someone else conjure up the delicacies while I enjoy them with family and friends.
If I need to take a baked item to a function or if the extended family drop by I am sure I can improvise, borrow or use a foil substitute with no need to keep the array of items I have now.
So let’s declutter our bakeware, if you are like me most of it is a bit worse for wear and could do with being put in the bin as it has been well and truly cremated over time.
What have you used in the last 12 months?
I understand that a lot of people do not cook throughout the year but when the festive season is almost upon us, they get into a frenzy of culinary creativity!!
Decluttering is not about getting rid of everything, it’s about being realistic with what you need and use and what you don’t.
For those who like me and rarely if ever get the rush to knock up a sponge cake or batch of Anzacs we can probably get away with keeping just a few items.
Here is my suggested list.
- Square tin
- Round tin
- Muffin pan
- Biscuit/Scone tray
- Flan tin/dish
- Baking dish
- Cooling rack
That selection should see the majority of occasions and needs. For those who are Masterchefs in the making then perhaps your selection will need to be a larger.
