Posted by for Life

Baking in lockdown? Us too. Shop our edit of the prettiest bakeware to make sure you’ve got all the gear, even if you’ve really got no idea. 

“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. 

  • Bake set

    We all know banana bread has been the bake of lockdown, and if you haven’t given it a go yourself yet, this loaf tin is perfect.

    We like its rustic vibe, featuring Falcon’s distinctive blue and white colour scheme and its roomy size. 

    Oh, and if you’re looking for an easy way to knock up a banana loaf at home, we recommend this vegan-friendly pre-made mix from Superfood Bakery

  • Heart cake tin

    Bake yourself a heart-shaped cake with this non-stick tin from baking experts, Le Creuset.

    It has a clever clip-sided tin with removable base which makes it quicker to remove and serve desserts – and anything that makes it easier for us to eat cake is OK by us.

    Shop Le Creuset heart cake tin at John Lewis, £28

  • Retro stand mixer

    Making the perfect baked goods means having a perfectly smooth, fluffy mixture and let us tell you, it’s hard work by hand. 

    Shop Smeg retro stand mixer at Mark;s Electrical, £399

  • Mixing bowl

    Simple and sophisticated, this white mixing bowl would look great in a French farmhouse-style kitchen. 

    It’s got a sturdy handle and is made from solid earthenware, so it’s microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe. 

    Shop mixing bowl at Nordic House, £19.50
