Do Room Temperature Ingredients Actually Make a Difference in Baking?

Is it just us, or do you always feel like your life is in a constant rush? When a recipe calls for room temperature ingredients, it can be tempting to just ignore it and hope for the best. Does it really make a difference if your ingredients are not the correct temperature? The short answer is a resounding yes!

Cold ingredients tend to not mix together as well which can cause lumps in your batter, and nobody wants that! Taking the extra time to let your ingredients reach room temperature will ensure that your baked goods turn out perfectly. Don’t worry, you will save that time and more by using our Bosch Mixers! Keep reading to find out how to easily get your cold ingredients to room temperature!

Eggs: Place the number of eggs you will be using in a bowl filled with warm water for about 10 minutes. By bringing the eggs to room temperature, they will disperse more evenly in your batter.

Butter: Take your butter out of the fridge 30 minutes to an hour before you start baking! Try to avoid using the microwave if you can. It is easy to leave your butter in the microwave for too long, causing it to over-soften.

Milk: Take the milk out of the fridge about 45 minutes to an hour before you start baking.

Bosch pro tip: Put all of the necessary cold ingredients on the counter before you begin taking out your other ingredients and kitchen appliances needed for baking. This will allow more time for your cold ingredients to get to room temperature while you prepare for baking.
