Baking has always brought me joy and now that I’m at home a lot more, there is no better time than now to dust off the rolling pin and preheat the oven. But given these extraordinary circumstances it can be harder than usual to find our baking staples, but worry not, I have a few treats up my sleeve that don’t need particular ingredients.
This simple recipe uses only three ingredients: peanut butter, sugar and egg. The best part is they’re gluten-free too! It’s super easy to make and super delicious to eat. If you have a massive sweeth tooth like I do, try adding some chocolate chips to the mixture for extra sweetness.
A gloriously rich chocolatey cake is a must for those times when you just need to overindulge. It’s fabulous, decadent and an absolute showstopper if you want to impress your quarantine buddies – even your gluten-free ones!
A dentist’s worst nightmare but a sweet tooth’s heaven! Have you ever made your own honeycomb? It’s surprisingly easy. This recipe uses only three ingredients: sugar, golden syrup and bicarbonate of soda. (Top tip: keep an eye on the pan, it’s easy to make but also easy to burn).
This is the easiest and simplest brownie recipe I have ever used, even when we haven’t been in lockdown. They are so thicc and fudgy, it’s hard to believe there is NO butter in them. I dare you to not eat them all in one go! It will be hard.
Whenever my bananas get too soft, I turn them into a delicious banana bread and it seems like just about everyone is making banana bread during this lockdown and you should be no different! All the sweetness comes from the overripe bananas and the touch of honey. Who needs sugar?
These cookies are soft and chewy, melt in your mouth and make you wish you made them sooner. They’re that good. And they’re totally vegan. Diet. Starts. On. Monday.
These bad boys only have four ingredients and take half an hour at most to make! They have the perfect amount of gooeyness, that makes you go ‘aaah’ after a long day.
No flour, sugar or eggs?! No problem
The reason why I love love love this recipe is because it uses mainly store cupboard ingredients and it’s fully customisable too! – so you can add your own twist to it, like our very own homemade honeycomb from earlier.
Roll up your sleeves, this one gets messy but it’s totally worth it! These make the perfect gift for a loved one and you can easily customise it to include their favourite bits like nuts or dried fruit. The best part? They last for so long in the freezer – if you can resist eating them all in one go.
