Hello there! I’m Claire, the creative mind and hands behind Baked by Claire.

I’m from the UK but have had the privilege of embarking on a culinary journey that’s taken me far and wide. From the bustling pastry kitchens of New York to the sunny shores of Spain, the vast landscapes of Canada, and the charming corners of Estonia, my culinary adventures have shaped my love for all things delicious.

Needless to say, I’ve done a lot of baking. Cakes, bread, tarts, pies - you name it!

The idea for Baked by Claire sprouted during the lockdowns of the COVID era when I found myself with some extra time on my hands.

With my background as a trained pastry chef, I decided to channel my passion for baking into a blog. And it’s become a delightful space where I can share my love for the art of baking and explore the diverse world of cuisine.

And that little hobby blog has suddenly become a huge passion with readers all over the world.

I’m so lucky to have people making and sharing my recipes from the Philippines to Australia!

While my heart may lean towards creating heavenly baked goods and cakes, I’m a true foodie. I adore everything about food—the aromas, flavors, textures, and the joy of sharing memorable meals with loved ones.

One of my signature recipes, and a personal favorite, is my baked New York cheesecake. It’s a slice of creamy heaven that never fails to put a smile on people’s faces.

At Baked by Claire, you can expect to discover a delightful mix of sweet and savory recipes, as well as refreshing drinks and handy culinary tips.

There’s no strict theme here, just good food that people like.

I’m not one for over-the-top or overly complicated recipes. Instead, I aim to provide you with dishes that are approachable, comforting, and, above all, delicious.

After all, food has a way of bringing people together, and I hope that Baked by Claire can be a source of inspiration and delight in your own culinary journey.

I hope you enjoy my blog and make some of these tasty dishes. And don’t forget to keep coming back because I’m always adding more!

And if you want something to keep at home, I even have a couple of e-books available on Amazon.

Happy baking and cooking, Claire
