Perpetuating Generations of Future Home Bakers...



The Home Baking Association encourages families to spend time together in the kitchen. Baking is an inexpensive family activity that provides opportunities for families to share baking traditions, recipes and family heritage that can be handed down through each generation.

Recipes, baking activities and resources are provided to help families create new baking memories and traditions. From toddler to grandparent - baking is the perfect family activity!

Thank you,

The Home Baking Association 


Bake For Family Fun!

Everyone benefits when families bake together - children, parents, grandparents!  

Why not encourage baking at home by having students prepare a mix to take home and bake with their family?

Encourage youth to learn family traditions, favorite recipes and the joy of baking as a family!




Recipes to Share
with Families
