#120 Baking cooking vocabulary in English


Hi everyone! I am Georgiana, founder of My mission is to help you speak English fluently.

In today's lesson, I'll talk about baking. I'll teach you how to bake my favorite blueberry muffins. So if you want to enrich your English vocabulary and try out my favorite muffin recipe, I suggest that you continue listening.

And with a point of view lesson, you will improve your English grammar intuitively without memorizing any rules. 

Unbelievable! Today is episode 120. That means you get over 120 free English lessons. If my podcast helps you, be sure to share it with your friends. That would mean a lot to me. Thank you.

Ok, let's start!

 I don't know about you, but I love baking.

And the easiest recipe I know, and the one my friends like best, is blueberry muffins.

People are very used to eating all sorts of pastries that contain an incredible amount of sugar, yet one of the things they love most about my cakes is the fact that I add very little sugar. 

That's why I started baking. I'm not too fond of pies with a lot of sugar either.

So today, I'm going to share with you my blueberry muffin recipe.

Are you excited?

Oh, I'm sure that if you try these muffins, you're gonna love them.

If you've never heard the word muffin, then you probably know the term cupcake.

cupcake is very similar to a muffin, but it is always sweet and often covered with frosting

Wait a minute, what's frosting?

It's a sweet mixture that we use to decorate and fill cakes.

Muffins, on the other hand, are generally considered healthier than cupcakes. They are usually made with whole wheat flour and loaded with fruit. 

It is not easy to describe how a muffin looks, but the only real difference between a slice of cake and a muffin is the shape. But just to give you an idea, a muffin looks like an oversized mushroom.

It's very easy to make them. It doesn't matter if you're a master chef or if you never set foot in the kitchen

And all you need is 30 minutes, 10 minutes of preparation, and cook for 20 minutes. 

And don't worry because you won't even need a food processor.

food processor is an electric machine that cuts, slices, and mixes food quickly.  

But in this case, you will only need a mixing bowl.

Before we start cooking, let's take a look at the ingredients we need for the muffins. 

This is an essential step. You have to make sure you have all the ingredients ready before you start baking. This will speed up the preparation and ensure that no ingredients are missing.

This has happened to me more than once. The other day I wanted to make a carrot cake, and I was pretty sure I had some carrots in the refrigerator. It turns out that there weren't any carrots in the fridge, so I had to shop for groceries, and that ruined the moment.  

Before we go any further, let's get a little better understanding of how we measure the ingredients.  

In the US, we use cupstablespoons, and teaspoons in our recipes.  

To follow this recipe, you'll need some measuring cups and spoons. You can get them online or in your local store.
