“Is banana bread sponsoring lockdown?” If you haven’t thought it yourself, we bet you’ll have seen this sentiment expressed on Twitter, Instagram or one of your WhatsApp groups.
Stuck inside and forced to take life at a slower pace, many of us have found that baking is our new favourite hobby. Within days of lockdown our social media feeds were overrun with pictures of friends’ attempts at making their own bread, oven-baked desserts or Easter-themed treats.
Not only is it a soothing past time, let’s face it – there’s not much else to do – it’s also indulging us in one of our favourite lockdown activities – eating. Essentially, it’s a win-win.
To make the experience as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palette, get your kitchen cupboards in order with our edit of the prettiest bakeware out there.
