Not so breaking news: flour is extremely hard to find these days.
We’ve got more time on our hands than ever before, so it’s no surprise that many of us have turned our hand to home baking. While banana bread seems to be the firm favourite, we’ve all enjoyed seeing our friends’ and families’ baked goods proudly displayed all over Instagram and Facebook.
But for those of us who are yet to find a single bag of flour in our local supermarket, the thrill of whipping up a quick cake seems like a distant memory…
However – all is not lost! Thanks to the glorious world wide web, we’d found an abundance of no-flour bakes that are crying out for attention! There’s never been a better time to try a “no flour” recipe. So turn your oven to 180°, get your KitchenAid at the ready and read our top four recipes to try during lockdown:
This recipe from Two Peas & Their Pod has everything you need for a delicious dozen of cookies – chocolate, and lots of it.
Not only are these cookies gluten-free, but they’re also packed full of nuts, meaning they’re high in protein, making them a great post-workout snack or afternoon pick me up.
Where the recipe asks for “powdered sugar” use standard icing sugar (we were sceptical too but it really works!)
If you can’t find flour in the shops, what’s the next best thing? Ready-made pastry of course!
This oh-so-easy-peasy recipe from Well Plated is so simple to put together, we’re kicking ourselves for not trying it sooner! Jus-Rol’s puff pastry makes home baking a breeze and once you’ve tried these cinnamon rolls, why not get creative with some savoury ideas? Pesto pinwheels anyone?
Not to be confused with a Swiss roll, which is a fat-free sponge, a roulade is made from whisked eggs whites. Mary Berry delivers once again with this zest lemon roulade!
Perfect for a weekend pud, special occasion dessert or simply a mid-week treat, this no flour lemon roulade is relatively easy to make and looks very impressive.
Adapt the recipe with chocolate, jam, or any other sweet filling for a spin on a classic.
Savoury Spinach & Cheese Muffins
My Fussy Eater‘s kids friendly spinach and cheese muffins are the perfect breakfast snack for those wanting to spice up their normal cereal/toast routine.
This quick and easy recipe can be whipped up in under 30 minutes – perfect for keeping little ones entertained during the lockdown!
