15 Baking Recipes To Try While In Quarantine

Quarantine is getting so boring, and finding activities to do inside seems to be getting harder and harder. But, if you love to experiment with food and don’t mind heating your house up a bit, baking is a great way to pass the time. You’ve probably already tried some recipe and some of you might’ve loved it and some of you might’ve sworn off baking altogether. 

Don’t turn away just yet, because once you see these baking recipes, you’ll be in the kitchen in a minute rolling up your sleeves to get your baking on! And if you really do hate baking, get someone in your house to do it for you. That’s what I do! 

Most of these baking recipes are for the people who have a sweet tooth and can’t keep their hands off the stuff, but I have sprinkled a few savory baking recipes throughout to get some variety. So, turn up your AC and get to baking!

1. Quadruple Chocolate Pudding Cookies

These ooey-gooey, yummy cookies are for the chocolate lovers out there as this cookie has cocoa powder, chocolate chips, and chunks,  and chocolate pudding mix to really pack the chocolate flavor in this bad boy.

Though this cookie contains a lot of chocolate ingredients, there are not any other ingredients that are out of the ordinary so it makes these cookies pretty easy to make.

2. Baked Beignets

Beignets are usually deep-fried, however, I have found an easy recipe to bake beignets instead so you don’t have to go through the hassle of frying them.

If you’re a fan of Disney, you’ll have also noticed beignets being served in the Disney movie Princess and the Frog.

Ingredients

  • Lukewarm water
  • Granulated sugar
  • Active dry yeast
  • An egg
  • Salt
