8 Easy Baking Recipes to Try This Weekend

There’s something particularly comforting about freshly baked goods during times of stress, so it’s no wonder than many people are using their time in quarantine to whip up delicious treats. It seems everywhere you look on social media right now, everyone is baking fabulous cakes and breads from scratch. While mouthwatering, these Pinterest-perfect creations can be quite intimidating if you’re not an experienced baker.

Luckily, that doesn’t mean you can’t make something delicious too. After all, it doesn’t have to be overly complicated to satisfy your sweet tooth. These eight recipes are easy and use common ingredients!

4 Ingredient Banana Bread via The Typical Mom

Suddenly, banana bread has turned into a social media celebrity, so we would be remiss not to include a banana bread recipe on this list. We included this one because it only uses four ingredients. You can’t get much easier than that!

Quick and Easy No Yeast Cinnamon Rolls via Chic ‘n Savvy

Cinnamon rolls are also enjoying their moment in the spotlight, so we wanted to make sure you had an easy recipe in your arsenal. We like this recipe because it doesn’t use yeast. Yeast can be a little tricky, and some stores are having a hard time keeping it in stock, so we think this is a great alternative.

No-Yeast Bread via CDKitchen

Having a loaf of bread in the house can give you more options for what to serve for any meal. We’ve included this recipe so that you have a quick, easy option to make your own bread. It uses almost entirely pantry ingredients, so you might be able to make it with what you have on hand. While milk and butter are optional ingredients, they aren’t essential.

Easy Vegan Carrot Muffins via It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken

Butter and eggs are common staples in baking, but that doesn’t mean you have to use them! These vegan carrot muffins make the list because they are chock-full of flavorful ingredients, but they’re entirely vegan as long as you use vegan white sugar. Plus, while some vegan baking recipes use hard-to-find ingredients, this recipe uses mostly ingredients you may already have on hand.

Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies via Baker Bettie

Chocolate chip cookies are an irresistible classic! We selected this recipe because it uses just six simple ingredients. If you’re baking up a storm, you probably already have all the essentials on hand.

Easy Homemade Brownies via Life, Love and Sugar

If you’re craving gooey brownies, this recipe is for you! This is one of our favorites because it uses just eight ingredients, most of which are pantry staples. Have some vanilla ice cream in your freezer? We think it would be perfect on a warm brownie!

Vanilla Crazy Cake via Totally The Bomb

Vanilla crazy cake rose to popularity during the depression when supplies were scarce. We’ve included this recipe in the list because it deserves a resurgence. It relies on pantry ingredients and doesn’t use dairy or eggs, so you might be able to bake even if you haven’t gotten groceries in a while.

Apple Pie via Kristine’s Kitchen

Pie is a little trickier to make than some baked goods, but if you want to test your skills, we think this recipe is a great option. It uses simple, common ingredients. While putting together the crust requires technique, this recipe walks you through it carefully.
