Who knew there were rules about using salt? Well, there are!
I thought hard about my first blog post following reopening. Salt occurs more in my personal bread baking, but a pinch or so does feature in many cakes (e.g. vegan chocolate cupcakes).
So 'rules' plural may be stretching the concept, but there's definitely one rule you should always follow when using salt in your sweet bakes.
Use fine sea salt wherever possible.
This is because it is easier to measure, dissolves quickly, and is not iodised. Iodised salt can give an unpleasant taste to baked goods - something to avoid, for sure!
For a list of baking rules you can break (in fact, we encourage you to break them!), visit our blog "Three Baking Rules That Were Meant To Be Broken" from July 2018.
PS. As a bonus, while researching this blog, I came across this - apparently salt can be good for your teeth too!
