#5 Surprise Bake Along: The Ingredients & Equipment

If you don’t know what a surprise bake along is, well get ready to hop on a wild baking ride! Here’s what happens, I provide the ingredients and equipment you need in advance (that’s happening today). Then we all meet together LIVE on my instagram to bake together where what we will be making will be revealed!!

I’ve listed the exact quantities for the ingredients you’ll need and the equipment needed. Ingredients are in both cups and metric- I highly highly recommend getting a scale and doing this in metric- super easy, and way more accurate. It’s what all the cool kids are doing ;-).

THE BAKE ALONG IS….. SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 29TH at 6pm Paris time, 11am CST, 12pm EST. 1 hour!

NOTES: This recipe is gluten free! And we will probably do something you’ve never done before! I can’t 100% guarantee it but I’m pretty sure you haven’t done this before 😉
