As people hunker in at home and stores run low on supplies amid the coronavirus pandemic, our kitchens are quickly running out of bread.
But what if the shelves in your grocery store are wiped out? We’ve got you covered.
In addition to our list of recipes perfect for stress baking, we bring you: Easy bread recipes to make during quarantine – just remember to wash your hands!
Check out our suggestions below, including options if you’re missing key ingredients.
Beginner classic: It’s the best thing since sliced bread: homemade sliced bread! Butter With a Side of Bread’s easy homemade bread recipe is the perfect upgrade from a typical store-bought loaf. PB&Js, here we come!
Crowd pleaser: Le Creuset’s Dutch oven bread may seem intimidating, but it’s an easy recipe for beginners and gives a more rustic final product.
Want a challenge? All dressed up and nowhere to go because of social distancing? Feel fancy with Baking a Moment’s crusty French baguette. Warning: This recipe takes about 3 hours, but in times like these, you may want the distraction.
No yeast? Grandma’s Irish soda bread by Sally’s Baking Addiction is another easy recipe to tackle. Looking to take it to the next level? This recipe includes an (optional) raisin addition for a bit of pizzazz.
No eggs? Cafe Delites’ easy soft dinner rolls don’t require eggs or (non-bakers, rejoice) a mixer.
No milk? No problem. Brown Eyed Baker’s favorite white bread recipe will give you those perfect loaves with just warm water.
No butter? Refer to the top of our list. The beginner classic option is butter-free AND milk- and egg-free. So skip the shopping and get baking!
Vegan flatbread: The beginner classic recipe is vegan-friendly (no dairy or eggs) and so is Minimalist Baker’s garlic and herb flatbread, a savory snack that doesn’t use animal products.
Gluten-free: If you can’t have gluten (found in the flour used in typical breads), Gluten-Free Palate’s gluten-free bread recipe is perfect for you, swapping the typical dry ingredients with white rice and millet flour and other starch alternatives. It can also be made in an oven or bread machine.
Keto-friendly: Being keto in quarantine can be tough, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have bread. Wholesome Yum’s easy paleo keto bread has only five ingredients, including almond and coconut flour and lots of egg whites.
