Welcome to Bake with Maria. If you are looking to expand your baking repertoire or master moist cakes, flaky pastry and wholesome bread you have come to the right place. I teach a variety of baking classes with the common goal of helping you make delicious baked goods from scratch in a domestic kitchen. I have taught thousands of students over the past 7 years, from the first time baker who has never encountered yeast to the entrepreneur who runs 12 successful bakeries in India. I enjoy spending time in my kitchen meeting new people, baking with them and teaching them new skills that they can use at at home. I look forward to welcoming you!

To see what my previous students have to say about my classes, check out Tripadvisor for more than 200 reviews!

Happy Baking! 



I’ve been baking ever since I was a little girl. I love spending time in my kitchen, kneading bread, seeing the dough develop in my hands, trying out new recipes and making up my own! My passion is home-baked bread and cakes!  It was this passion that led me away from corporate life and toward running my own baking school.

I received my professional training at Westminster Kingsway College as well as Lakefield College, where I earned a Professional Chef Diploma Level 3 in Patisserie and Confectionery.

I have run my school, The Baking Lab, for 7 years. During that time I have taught thousands of students how to bake great tasting breads, cakes and pastries from scratch. Shortly, my School’s building will be demolished to make room for the High Speed 2 train line. Seeing this as an opportunity for new adventures, I now teach out of my home kitchen and various schools and colleges in London.

On the home front, I am happily married to Marshall and proud mum to two small kids: Kasper & Astrid.
