I am not a baker and have never really classified as a baker - until lockdown. I thought to myself, this is too much effort and I do not need to eat cake.
However, I have tried my hand at it and well, if you follow the recipe - it works. WHO KNEW? Flour, eggs and sug
ar have been in low supply, but lots of websites have been promoting recipes without such ingredients. Once you have the staples like bicarbonate of soda, baking powder, vanilla essence, baking parchment and a tin, lots of recipes - particularly cakes are variations of each other.
Candice Brown of Great British Bake Off fame does a live 'Food Tech Thursday' on Instagram, usually at 2pm. She will tell you what you shall be making earlier in the week so that you have the ingredients you need. It is nothing too far fetched - Bakewell Tart, Crumble and Custard etc. (The live story will be saved on her page so that you can access it at another time)
With all these calories in mind - please be sympathetic towards me when lockdown is over and I have expanded exponentially!
