2020 was truly a strange year. With everyone spending more time at home and more time in the kitchen, my hope was that these Baking Therapy treats would inspire you to try something new. I’m sharing some of my favourite recipes from this past year, from my soft and pillowy rolls to one of my all-time favourite carrot cake recipes, that will hopefully ignite the baking enthusiast in you. Happy baking!
