♡ best of lockdown baking ♡

May 20, 2020

I have more free time than I’ve ever had at the minute and even we do my school work I feel like I have so much time to do the things I truly want to. Baking is one of the things I enjoy doing the most, and during lockdown I’ve got so much free time to be able to do - baking.

 Especially since I’ve had this much time for a Baking I want to, i’ve really been trying to mix it up. There’s so many things to bake and I want to try and make as many things as I can - lockdown rule I have we myself is to not make the same thing twice. It has given me a chance to experiment and test my baking skills and I’ve enjoyed it so much. I baked about once a week, everything has turned out so delicious I want to share!

 To start with I made flapjacks. I haven’t made them and I followed my blogpost - Flapjack recipe html as I had the ingredients I wanted to use them. I had a nightmare melting the chocolate but they turned out to be delicious!

 Next I made my personal favourThe best brownie recipe of your life this is the perfect recipie I have ever used and it’ll be a favourite of the lockdown - brownies. These brownies have one of the best things I have ever baked. Are used one of my favourite bloggers ItsLittleLauren’s recipe just without the cream eggs.

 The next I tried something I’ve never met before - a lemon drizzle. It was the best decision I ever had. It is created a new found with lemon drizzle - the cake was divine. I used a trusty bbc good foods recipe Lemon drizzle cake and it was eaten within 2 days, lll be definitely making it again

 Then because I had a busy week at work, I decided to just make shortbread. Instead of being creative or trying something new I just stuck with this shortbreads because everyone loves with them. And my mum got a new marble chopping board so the picture are now to get better - Shortbread recipe

 The most recent thing I’ve gone to make is rocky road. I followed the recipe from Tanya Burr’s book, ‘Tanya bakes’ and to this day I love this recipie book. I made rocky road once a few years ago and I loved it - making it this time was the exact same joy. The other problem was I put the marshmallows into soon and they all melted but nonetheless it tasted delicious.

 I made the mini egg cookies to start with, following my yearly easter baking and posted this at the start of lockdown - Easter cookies and my auntie bought me. Cadbury cake mix with the icing and I used this - it was delicious!! I never use boxes but I had to give Cadbury’s a go and it was amazing.

To add to this post as it got so much love from it - I want to carry on including my lockdown baking. Baking brings just that bit of cheer to me so if sharing my goods inspires anyone then i have done a good job.

Well for my dads birthday i made him his favourite desert - a strawberry cheesecake!! I added a candle and surrounded it with all his presents and he loved it. But not only that - i had enough mixture leftover to be able to make mini cheesecake jars I shared with my neighbours.

Alongside trying something new i had a cookie dough craving. I have seen people make cookie dough pots and found an amazing recipe on Pinterest by a lovely blogger who shared this amazing  Hot Cookie Dough recipe i will be making so much now

 By looks like lockdown is nowhere near the end and I have plenty more time to bake and will be carrying on - possibly adding to this post as I’ve so much more plans to carry on baking! I want to try fudge, making a cheesecake and the list will go on! A positive of lockdown has to be I have had the time to do things, like baking, that I enjoy!
