First, I love these plastic storage containers with a handle and pour spout for sugar and flour. They keep your ingredients fresh and easy to pour out for measuring.
Next, I have found this curved silicon spatula from Williams-Sonoma to be perfect for scraping every bit of batter from the mixing bowl- in one swipe! I believe it was less than $15.00.
Finally, check out these little loaf pans. You can spread the batter from one recipe for a loaf of banana bread into 3 loaves! They bake very quickly and each loaf can have a different favorite add-in. I put pecans in one loaf, raisins in one and leave one plain for hubby.
