Hello and welcome to Bakecellence - a blog with an aim to bake with excellence. I am so glad you stopped by at my little slice of internet.
My name is Madeeha Anwar and my friends usually call me Chaudhry. I am the author, baker, recipe developer, recipe tester, food stylist and photographer here. My aim is to share from-scratch, simple, easy, delicious and never-fail recipes that will get you compliments from friends and family.
Journalist / Baker
I am a full-time journalist and a part-time baker (and vice-versa) based in Woodbridge, Virginia. From 8 - 4, I am busy with my day job and by evening you will find me in my kitchen wearing the apron and getting my hands on some baking.
I am from Pakistan but grew up in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) so my love for Pakistani (South Asian) and Mediterranean food is evident (and natural). In 2008, I moved to the United States, which opened doors to so many different cultures and foods. On top of it, I love to travel. So the bakes here on the blog will be inspired by my roots (Pakistan), my childhood home (Saudi Arabia), my home now (USA) and my numerous travels around the world.
I am a self-taught and self-proclaimed baker with an immense interest in developing new baking recipes. On this blog I share my perfect recipes that I have developed and/or acquired over the years.
Recipe Developer | Food Stylist | Food Photographer
I am the recipe developer, recipe tester, food stylist and food photographer for all the content you will find here. All the recipes on my website are tried and tested (numerous time). So, you don't have to worry about creating a recipe or juggling through measurements or ponder over ingredients. All you need to do is follow my easy and step-by-step instructions to enjoy delicious bakes.
