Got a sweet tooth and not sure how to satisfy it? Has quarantine got your mind wandering sometimes and you’re looking for some soul therapy? What if I told you, baking calms down your mind and works just like therapy because it’s food for the soul after all?
With shortage of bread around and craving for sweet something, I arrived at the idea of baking. Not being a pro at it I obviously wanted to begin with basic recipes, ingredients that are available with me and easy to make. I found this experience to be therapeutic and that’s why I want to share the same with you.
VANILLA CAKE –
Baking is like therapy just like one of your hobbies, it may seem challenging in the start but as you go with the flow (the making) you’re into it and by the end of it you’re indulging in it. To begin with baking a cake, thanks to Internet there are so many tutorials that can help you, but knowing which ones would work for you really matters. No refined flour? No problem. No eggs? Not required always! No oven? Don’t worry. In baking almost every time there’s an alternative solution, you just have to make sure you’re following the right recipe. I made a cake with just 5 ingredients. Can you believe it? It was shocking when I found what I could do with just 5 ingredients, but trust me it was no different from the flour made cake.
The cake was out of the world and surprisingly very easy to bake.
