Hello and welcome to The Classy Baker, I'm so happy you're here! I'm Lara - the author, recipe-developer, baker, and food-photographer at The Classy Baker.
If you love Mediterranean and Asian inspired food, and a have a passion for all things baked (especially sweet things!), then this is the right place for you :). On The Classy Baker you will find delicious, from-scratch, and easy-to-follow everyday and holiday recipes for that the whole family can enjoy.
My passion for baking has stemmed from a young age, where I would spend time attempting to bake (and mostly making a mess!) in my mother's kitchen. Fast forward to 20 or so years and I'm finally in my own kitchen trying out new recipes during weekends and evenings. There is just something about baking that makes it stand above other cooking techniques. As I go along, I'm continuously learning new things and improve on old habits.
My aim is to create beautiful and delicious recipes using accessible ingredients which can be enjoyed by everyone at anytime!
Many of my recipes feature typical Mediterranean and Asian ingredients, some of which are seasonal. I particularly love to bake with lemons, chocolate, nuts, strawberries, and blueberries. I'm also a big mascarpone lover and a huge Earl Grey tea and matcha addict.
Although most of the recipes involve baking sweets and savory comfort food, you will also find things such as no-bake cheesecakes, quick and easy appetizers for entertaining guests, and lots of eggless baking options.
I really hope that you enjoy your stay and that you will find some great recipes which you can make and enjoy! Please feel free to get in touch using this form.
Thanks for stopping by!
