Weekend baking is something very sacred in my weekly routine. It’s my time to relax and unwind. I could quite happily spend a whole morning pottering round my kitchen, thumbing through recipe books, and experimenting with flavors.
As much as I am experimental with my baking, I am with my music. My taste in music varied from classical, to country, to pop, all the way to post-rock, it falls under an insanely wide spectrum, mainly because every event/moment/mood goes better with one genre rather than another. That’s also true for baking. Morning baking sets a different mood than evening or midnight baking.
So, imagine this, You wake up one morning with that itch to bake. You have all your ingredients and equipment, you look around you feeling like you’re missing something. and then it hits you, inspiring tunes to bake to. Then you shuffle through your library, and YouTube playlists, trying to find somethings that’ll help you rock that rolling pin. That’s 30 precious minutes gone by before you start preparing your sweet treats.
After discussing this with a friend of mine on Twitter (@Legnus_), whose taste in music is undoubtedly the greatest, we got the idea of compiling our own little playlist that could save you the drag of searching for perfect music, and give you more time to work on those baked goods.
These tunes will have you whistling, swinging, smiling and humming. Careful not to spill that batter though!
You can find the playlist on 8Tracks.
Not to your taste? I’d love to know what music inspires you to sing and move about as you bake.
