The bake sale tradition has benefited many worthy causes, but figuring out what to take can be a challenge. Not just any recipe will work. It needs to look and taste delicious, without the need to be kept cool or made at the last minute.
There are a lot of good options, but rather than going through the “What am I going to take?” routine every time, think about creating your own signature bake sale recipe. Aim for one that is dependable, uses basic ingredients and is something you can make in advance and freeze. Of course, you also want it to be so good that folks look forward to it every year. With your recipe picked out and the ingredients on hand, you’ll be ready to bake anytime you get a request.
