Sometimes you’re excited about a big baking project, but other times you’re looking for easy baking recipes only. You need emergency dessert options that are better than a handful of chocolate chips and bake sale delights that don’t require you to learn a new skill. Perhaps you’re in charge of dessert at a potluck during a busy week, or maybe you require a crowd-pleasing brunch option for those whose preference is for sweets at breakfast. This isn’t the time to braid brioche knots or tend to a sourdough starter. This is one-bowl cake time, simple cookie time, make-ahead French toast time, and easy cocoa brownies time. Below you’ll find all of our favorite easy baking ideas, including foolproof muffins, tray biscuits, loaf cakes, blondies, galettes, and more.
