We really enjoyed choosing our best baking blogs for this year’s round-up. Our love of baking at Kitchen Authority runs deep. We bake a lot around here. I mean ALOT!
We’ve sifted through the usual suspects and picked out our Top 10 favorite baking blogs of 2020. There’s tons more that could and/or should be on this list but these are our favorite at this time. Enjoy!
If you’d like to explore more food blogs and different cuisines then head over to our Best Food Blogs Kitchen Authority Guide.
Joy The Baker
Joy is a Californian based in Louisiana who simply loves food.
She says that she’s self-taught as a baker and that baking led her to food photography and authoring cookbooks.
She runs her own studio in New Orleans where you can connect with Joy’s baking.
As you can tell from the title of her blog Joy is all about baking and her blog is packed with superb ideas which will delight you and your family.
One of our favorites is these strawberry shortcake doughnuts, they look fantastic and taste even better.
Give them a try today!
Michelle The Brown Eyed Baker
The Brown Eyed Baker is “where it’s perfectly acceptable to eat dessert first!”
You can’t argue with that premise, can you? Well, we can’t.
We love desserts at Kitchen Authority and Michelle, The Brown Eyed Baker, is one of our absolute favorites when it comes to making great desserts.
Her free newsletter on her blog is one of the most valuable tip sheets that we’ve signed up for and we love the way she makes recipes so easy.
Check out her no bake banana split dessert and see in the summer with Michelle’s food!
Izy Hossack’s Top With Cinammon
Izy Hossack continues our series on brilliant baking bloggers and her Top With Cinnamon is one of our essential reads on the internet.
Izy is form London and she graduated from Leeds University with a degree in Food Science & Nutrition and she’s put her knowledge to work in creating Top With Cinammon.
This is a blog with an emphasis on the healthy.
She’s a flexitarian and loves to include quality vegan recipes.
We’re going to recommend something savory from Izy’s site and suggest that you check out her recipe for Grilled Asparagus Bao Buns. Yum.
Natalie Slater’s Bake And Destroy
Natalie Slater is definitely a brilliant baking blogger and since 2011 she’s taken her blog in a single direction – veganism!
She’s very clear that she’s not interested in non-vegan or alcoholic cookery, but she still has amazing range and her recipes are always fantastic!
She says that her recipes are inspired by her love for punk rock and heavy metal and while we can’t say that we found ourselves moshing to her vegan cherry pie recipe (take two) we did find ourselves nodding in appreciation. It’s great!
Tieghan Gerard’s Half Baked Harvest
Tieghan’s all about big meals. Seriously, big meals. That’s because she grew up in a family of 9 where every meal was a big meal.
Having said that, she’s an admirably healthy-looking chef, so while she may make big meals, she clearly doesn’t eat them by herself.
Half Baked Harvest has a strong focus on seasonal recipes that are prepared with local, whole foods, so you may need to hunt around a little on the site to find the perfect recipe for today.
We strongly recommend that you try the Kentucky Derby Pie Chocolate Chip Bars if you’re in the mood for dessert.
Nadia’s Bake Fresh
One of the joys of great food is that it knows no borders. Nadia is from Pakistan and lives in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Yet, she still bakes better than almost anyone!
We love Bake Fresh, it’s a cute site with a truly enthusiastic appeal.
You’d never guess that Nadia intended to spend her life in computers (she graduated with a computer science degree and worked as a project manager before she started blogging).
We thought her super moist carrot cake was a near perfect work of the culinary art.
Beth Hillson’s Gluten Free Makeovers
Beth Hillson is a brilliant baking blogger with a difference; all of her work focuses on transforming regular dishes into gluten free ones.
If you want to tackle living with celiac disease, this is the place to do it.
You can always check out her cookbook Gluten-Free Makeovers on Amazon if you want an easy reference in the kitchen, but we’ve found her instructions to be very clear and valuable.
Sadly, she doesn’t update her website as often as she could, but we strongly recommend these Incredible Ginger Molasses Cookies.
Victoria Pease’s Victoria Sponge Pease Pudding
Victoria says that she spends most of her life covered in icing sugar and the rest of the time she’s covered in cocoa powder and self-raising flower.
Yes, Victoria Pease loves to bake, and it shows on every page of her blog.
What’s quite incredible is that all of her food photos are taken with a point and shoot!
There’s a lot of healthy stuff on Victoria’s website and we really liked this Vegan Milk Bar Birthday Cake.
We’re sure that you will too.
We were starting to feel a little sexist on our list of brilliant baking bloggers but we’ve finally landed on a super representative from the men’s team – Nick Malgieri.
Nick’s books have won the James Beard award, so we feel that he’s possibly the most “qualified” chef on this list but do his recipes do the talking?
Yes, yes, they do.
And to prove that baking is not all about desserts, we’re going to suggest that you check out this outstanding Gruyere and Walnut Bread.
It’s the tastiest
thing we’ve had for breakfast, ever.
Yossy Arefi’s Apt. 2B Baking Co.
Some people just ooze brilliance from every pore and we think Yossy Arefi’s baking is truly brilliant.
She’s a food photographer, food stylist and baker and has recently released her first cookbook – Sweeter Off The Vine which you can find on Amazon.
What we love about Yossy’s work is not just that it’s tasty but it’s all beautiful too.
There’s nothing on her blog that you would be shy of serving to royalty; this is food as art.
Check out her crushed raspberry and strawberry pavlova and tell us we’re wrong?
