During these lockdown days, we flit from the laptop to the hand mixer with relative ease, baking sweet treats and comfort food. My WhatsApp messages are filled with images of home baked goods, recommended recipes, along with random messages with the latest COVID-19 conspiracy.
Our shopping lists are filled with items such as:
Bicarbonate of soda
If we can find them in the stores, we are delighted beyond measure (or was that just me, when I managed to find some organic vanilla extract…I was struggling to find this even before the lockdown).
This morning, I set out the vanilla extract, mixed spice and caster sugar on the worktop, I’m not sure what I’ll come up with today, but the family are eager to know what I’ll be making.
Are you baking today? I’d love to hear what you will be baking, or what you have been baking.
