Baking Planner helps you organize holiday cookie baking and other baking events. This app lets you store your favorite recipes. Along with that, Baking Planner can help you organize a list of friends you want to share your treats with, easily distribute these treats into different containers of your choice, and make scheduling your baking days much easier. It automatically calculates how many baking goods you need based on what is needed in each container and the container a recipient is assigned to. The “Ingredient” tab gives you a quick overview on what and how many ingredients are required. From there, you can quickly turn it into a shopping list.

Key features include:

  • Managing and storing your favorite recipes
  • Adding an unlimited amount of containers of your choice and the number of goodies each container will have.
  • Adding recipients of goodies and assigning containers to them. You can also set a date for when recipient will receive your treats.
  • Scheduling baking days, calculating how many goods you need to make each day and the remaining quantity of goods left to bake.
