Look, we don’t have the exact science on this, but we’ve noticed an interesting phenomenon recently. Maybe you’ve noticed it too. It sure seems like… as our time spent hunkered down indoors increases, so too does our inexplicable collective desire to bake up a storm. You can’t scroll for cupcakes or sourdough starters or focaccia art on your feed these days. It’s inspiring! It’s wonderful!
And, not to be dramatic, but it’s also terrible.
Because an inconvenient side effect of this sudden baking boom is that flour — you know, that thing that forms the basis of, uh, most recipes — is now seemingly NOWHERE TO BE FOUND.
Maybe you’re one of the incomprehensibly lucky people who’ve managed to stumble across a precious bag at the exact moment it hit the shelves and not a split-second later. Or maybe you’re like us, and honestly can’t even remember what flour looks like at this point.
Either way, whether you’ve miraculously got access to the good stuff or not, we’ve got you covered with this list of our top favourite (and crucially, super-simple) sweet treat recipes.
Some are full ‘o flour and some are just not— we’ll let you figure out which are which — but all are 100% guaranteed to satisfy your comfort-baking and snacking urges.
