25 Baking Recipes For Self-Quarantine And Self-Care

By Kristen Aiken

The coronavirus is affecting many aspects of our everyday lives, but one area it shouldn’t impact is your home kitchen.

Researchers are still learning the specifics of how Covid-19 is transmitted, but we do know that the disease can spread through droplets that are released from the nose or mouth when someone coughs, sneezes or exhales ― as of now, there’s no evidence of Covid-19 transmission through food.

If you stock up on the right foods and the right amount of groceries, a self-quarantine doesn’t have to leave you hungry. In fact, if you’re healthy, it can be a chance to finally spend a few extra hours in the kitchen and master some baking recipes that you haven’t had the time to tackle. After all, now you’ve got plenty of time to binge-watch “The Great British Bakeoff” and find some inspiration.

Moreover, it’s been proved that baking can bring a host of psychological benefits, one of which is stress relief. The stress many of us are feeling right now is related to a host of mental and physical problems, and finding ways to cope with that stress is important for leading a healthy life. Baking can help with that.

Not sure what to make? Look in your pantry ― if you have flour, sugar, baking soda and baking powder, you’re on the right path. Your refrigerator should already be stocked with butter, eggs and milk, the fundamentals for so many baked goods.

Now just peruse the 25 most-liked baking recipes from HuffPost Taste’s Instagram account and bake away all your feelings. Take care!
