Hi there, IG friend!

Below you’ll find a grid that matches my IG feed (click “load more” if you don’t see it). Find the picture of the recipe you’re looking for and click on it or type the name of the recipe in the box below.

Comment sections of my videos and photos of my pie crust have historically gone NUTS over my butter chunks claiming this crust will “fall apart” or “completely melt” in the oven 🤦🏻‍♀️

The actual result?

THE FLAKIEST CRUST 🤩

Here are my best tips for getting a perfect and flaky crust every time:

1️⃣ When you’re making your pie crust, keep the big chunks of butter. They = flaky flakes!!
2️⃣ Roll from the center out rather than over top the whole thing.
3️⃣ Don’t be afraid to touch your pie crust to fix the sides, fill in holes, or press some of it together to keep it even. If it gets too warm from your fingers, see next step.
4️⃣ The refrigerator is your friend! Stop and chill any time you’re worried it’s too warm.
5️⃣ I always re-chill a pie crust once it’s in the pie plate for at LEAST 15-20 minutes before baking to prevent shrinking and encourage flakes.
6️⃣ Flip your pastry mat into the pie plate rather than try to roll the pie crust onto a rolling pin or lift it off.
7️⃣ Take your time! There is no need to rush the process.
8️⃣ Know with practice, you will get more comfortable with the process. You can do this! 🙌🏼

Being a food photographer >>>

Knowing that we (food bloggers) lose sleep over things like beautiful pie slices just may be the weirdest fun fact about us.
 
And it’s not just about the beautiful photo.
 
It’s also about FAILING so we can help YOU succeed. We make the process better when we know what NOT to do! 😅

This was my third lemon meringue pie. The first two made me cry (literally).
 
So this is your sign to do something out of your comfort zone, like make a pie crust from scratch, fill it with a cooked lemon filling, and top it with freshly whipped meringue.

Be sure to follow me @freshaprilflours for more approachable and easy-to-follow recipes. I promise… This one looks hard but my tutorial makes it so easy! 🍋

Looking for the easiest sugar cookie recipe? Say less…

As a recipe creator, I’m here to make scratch baking simple and feel less intimidating.

Not all of my cookies are no-chill, but they are all very easy, and this VIRAL (viewed nearly 8m times in 2 months) sugar cookie is no different.

In fact, check out this 5-star review from Dee that just came in last month:

“I have baked cookies, cakes, cupcakes, desserts for over 20 years for my family of 5. I have tried many sugar cookie recipes and they were always dry and tasteless. All said this is my go-to sugar cookie recipe, the only one you need. This is the only one that works for me. I appreciate the recipe and the notes.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Did we just become best friends? 🥰 

Hi! I’m Lynn 👋🏼 

I started my website, FreshAprilFlours.com, 10 years ago this week (!! 🥳), and back then, I was just like you: someone who wanted to learn how to bake really great yeast bread from scratch. And I just wanted a place to share that journey with others!

I now house 600+ recipes on my website including cakes, cupcakes, cookies, breads, and pies (AND MORE). And the Fresh April Flours brand is now my full time job.

But guess what? I didn’t bake my first cake from scratch until I was 25 😱

🍪 I didn’t “grow up baking with my mom in the kitchen”
🎂 I didn’t go to school for baking or pastry arts
🧁 I took a boxed cake to my first cake decorating class at my local craft store…

…and I couldn’t even get it out of the pan 😵‍💫

Sure. I helped my mom bake cookies from time to time and my dad make his famous spaghetti sauce every winter, but these moments did not define my childhood nor instill in me a love of baking/cooking.

Why does this matter? 🤔

Because even if you DID grow up baking with a relative, or you baked a scratch cake for the first time before you were in middle school, you are likely seeing my account because you’re also a HOME BAKER.

🧁 you bake cupcakes for your kids’ birthdays
🍪 you like making cookies from scratch for get togethers
🥧 you have a go-to apple pie recipe that everyone asks you to make for Thanksgiving
🎂 you look forward to “just because” weekend baking

Let me help you find easy-to-follow, tested and trusted, simple recipes you/your fam/your friends will love and rely on for years to come.
 
Introduce yourself below & be sure to follow for more! 🥰

Save this life-changing tip for the next time you make chocolate chip cookies 🍪🤎🧈

YES, you can do this with any chocolate chip cookie recipe, IFFFFF you do it correctly:
1️⃣ start with as much butter as your cookie recipe calls for
2️⃣ brown the butter (not sure how? We’ll get there in a second!)
3️⃣ add back in ONE TABLESPOON of water PER HALF CUP of butter and stir
4️⃣ allow the butter to return to whatever state it is supposed to be in for your cookie recipe
5️⃣ proceed with your cookie recipe as directed

⭐️ BONUS: this works great with my chocolate chip cookie recipe because it already starts with melted butter! ⭐️
 
Be sure to tag a friend who needs to know this, too! ⬇️

Don’t bake another thing until you read this ⤵️
 
If you’re a baker, you NEED (yes, need) an oven thermometer.
 
That “beep! Beep! Beep! I’m at 350!” is a total lie 😱

Rarely, if ever, is my oven actually at 350ºF when it beeps. In fact, it’s almost always at 300ºF, which is not sufficient heat to bake something that should be baked at 350ºF properly.

And before the comments roll in… NO, I don’t need a new oven, and neither do you (likely). This is a KNOWN THING among bakers. Every oven I’ve ever owned, new or old, operates in this same fashion.

I always let my oven sit for AT LEAST another 15 minutes to insure it is heated fully to 350ºF, and usually around 10-12 minutes, it’s ready, but those extra minutes are for me 😝

How do I know this? 🧐

Because I have an oven thermometer 🌡️

It’s the only way to properly assess the actual temperature of the inside of your oven. I leave mine in the center, on the center rack, and I move it once my food is inside.

➡️ Do you have an oven thermometer?
➡️ What is your experience with when your oven is ready?
➡️ Do you need to adjust the set temperature to make sure it reaches the correct inside temperature (meaning, should your oven actually be calibrated)?

If you need an oven thermometer, comment the word “link” and I’ll send you the link (affiliate) to my Amazon store front right to your DMs! 💌 #freshaprilflours • https://amzn.to/4bKzqnt

Here’s what Ghirardelli doesn’t want you to know… 🤫

Box brownies belong in the trash 😬

Ok, ok… That was extreme, but hear me out:

🤎 you only need 8 ingredients to make homemade fudge brownies
🤎 you can turn one recipe into so many flavors (just ask the 20+ brownie recipes I have on my site that all start with the same base)
🤎 you’ll feel more confident in your ability to bake from scratch after one gooey bite
🤎 homemade tastes better

I said what I said.

I know the comments are coming. I KNOWWWWW THEY ARE COMING. So let me get all the way ahead of them.

🧐 “I always use measuring cups and I’ve never had a problem.”
🧐 “I never weigh my flour and my _________ always turn out perfect.”

These may be totally true statements. I believe you, friend. I really honestly do.

But I also know that there is a better, easier, more accurate, and correct (yep, I said it) way to measure ingredients for accurate and repeatable results.

Accuracy and repeatability may not matter to you!

Here’s why it matters for me:

MY JOB is to teach people how to bake. I write recipes and share them on my website and the idea is that those recipes are repeatable with the SAME EXACT RESULTS by my readers in their own kitchens.

If I tell you that my cookie dough calls for 2 cups of all purpose flour, I’m telling you that I tested and perfected them with 240 grams of all purpose flour and I expect you to make them with that same exact measurement.

There’s no question of whether or not I spooned and leveled with my measuring cup, whether I dug down to the bottom of my flour container or I skimmed from the top, if I perhaps poured directly from the bag into the measuring cup…

There is NO QUESTION. None. Zero. It’s 240 grams PERIOD. Not taking questions.

Whenever someone says the recipe that they made from my site “didn’t turn out” or their cookies didn’t spread, or their cake was too dense, my first question is “did you weigh your flour?”

More often than not, the answer is no. If the answer is yes, we move onto the temperature of the butter, which is another controversial opinion I shared a few months ago that got people RILED UP about butter (holy moly, that was a WILD RIDE).

Listen. At the end of the day, you are going to continue measuring the way that you do and always have, and that’s fine. But if you are a user of my recipes and want to achieve the same exact results that I do and that are expected from the recipe, you’re going to have to make this change.

I promise I’m not trying to make your life miserable. I’m trying to make you a better and consistent baker. And if that upsets you, I’m not your people (and that’s ok) 🙌 #baking

It’s a new month, which means there’s a new installment of my monthly cheesecake series, which means YOU get to try a brand new recipe fresh from my oven! #fafcheesecakeofthemonth

And here’s the thing… If you only make ONE cheesecake from my site, let it be this epic, creamy, buttery, utterly delicious banana pudding cheesecake. It is out of this world good and I am worried I will never make another cheesecake as good as it ever again 😆

A Nilla Wafer crust, a creamy banana cheesecake filling, a layer of vanilla pudding, and clouds of whipped cream take everything you love about banana pudding and pile it into slices of banana pudding heaven 🤩

Want to know the BEST part? The roasted bananas 🍌

ROASTED 👏 BANANAS 👏

I’m telling you what... That addition alone is worth making this whole dessert. I said what I said 😏

Clearly still not over it 😂
 
Seriously though… 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄
 
Because if there’s one thing you need to know about me, it’s that I’m just like you (likely): SELF-TAUGHT.

And… Unless I’m wrong, almost every baker I know started out self-taught or taught by someone else who was self-taught (like a grandparent or parent).

And (!!), EVERY baker worth their salt goes on to continue to be taught, whether it be by self or not 🤔

AM I RIGHT?

By the way, this comment is on my easy royal icing recipe that has an average 4.9 rating from 126 reviews on it.

My FAVORITE PART?

That comment has nearly 20 replies from 🌟my people🌟 telling Violet how much they love the recipe and have used it many times.

Sounds like a Violet problem.

😏

Interested in the recipe? It’s a non-traditional royal icing made without meringue powder (so it’s veg-friendly! 🌱) and requires NO mixer or special equipment. Comment “recipe” below and I’ll send the link directly to your DMs! 💌 #freshaprilflours • https://freshaprilflours.com/easy-royal-icing

I finally put all of my Disney eats into a highlight on my profile! 🙌

While I’ve only been to WDW twice, I ate a lot, because DUH. And I took pictures and/or video of all of it, because DUH.

It’s just part of the job. Somebody’s gotta do it! 😎

In my highlight, you’ll find everything I’ve eaten with a description of what it is, a tag of where I got it, and sometimes a little review.

And yes, this also includes my thorough reviews of @gideonsbakehouse which is one of my absolute favorite parts of visiting Disney! 🍪

FULL DISCLOSURE: I’m not a Disney food blogger, so my highlight isn’t super robust. I’m obviously going to have to take MANY more trips back to Disney to get more complete reports (DARN). Some of the food we ate was seasonal because our first trip was the Christmas season 2022, but a lot of it you can find year round.

My personal opinions:

⭐️ EPCOT is the best for food, hands down!
➡️ I’m not a drinker, but I do enjoy an alcoholic beverage or two when I’m in EPCOT because the margs and mules are top notch.
➡️ you’ve heard of “drinking around the world” and “eating around the world” in EPCOT and that’s exactly what it is. GO HUNGRY.
➡️ France has the best desserts. FULL STOP.

⭐️ Disney Springs is worth a trip simply because of Gideon’s.
➡️ go there as SOON as you arrive and get into the virtual queue (you give them your phone number and they text you when it’s your turn to stand in line).
➡️ walk around, shop around, and wait for your turn to stand in line. It’s about 20 minutes from when you get in line to when you get to check out.
➡️ look at the menu they give you when you get in line so you know what you want when you get inside so the line keeps moving.
➡️ the nitro cold brew is BANGIN. If you’re like me and have a cutoff time for caffeine (mine is 9am), grab one and save it for the next day. Flat nitro certainly isn’t ideal, but I prefer sleeping at night 😴

⭐️ Animal Kingdom has our favorite GF/DF options!
➡️ Satu’li Canteen slaps. This is also one of the only places in all of Disney that we found veggies were easy to find.

So now I’m wondering… What are some of YOUR favorite places and eats? Comment them below! ⬇️👇

Because no one likes taking unevenly baked cut-out cookies out of the oven 😩

And I don’t know about you but cut-out cookies are totally on my agenda for Easter, and I want to make sure they’re just right! ⭐️

Using dowels insures your cookie dough is a uniform thickness across the board.

Every.single.cookie. is the same thickness which makes for even baking and symmetrical cookies.

You can find dowels at any hardware or craft store for PENNIES 🙌🏼

Pssst… Wait for that last one— it’s the BEST! 🤩

Ok, so, I’ll be honest…

One of my LEAST favorite things about being a content creator is the constant adapting. I’ve been doing this “thing” as a whole for nearly 10 years, and 5 of those years have been full time.

There’s always a new algorithm on a social platform or search engine. There’s always an update to “best practices.” There’s always a new trend. There’s always SOMETHING.

In the fall of 2015, I was at a blogging conference and the theme was “video is the future.”

I scoffed 😏

Surely it is not. There is no way. Video is NOT a thing in the blogging world.

ARE YOU LAUGHING BECAUSE I AM.

Even just 2 years ago, I loathed the idea that I needed to adapt to video 😩 but over the last year or so, I’ve gotten so comfortable and familiar with it that it’s just my new norm.

I love being here on Instagram with all of you, and I love showing you what you can do in the kitchen with zero prior skills. Video has made it even easier for me to do so! 🎥

Thank you for being here and for following along with me. Let’s never stop loving how satisfying it is to watch chips/sprinkles/crushed Oreos go into mixtures 🤩
