Since we’ve been on lockdown, many people have been trying new hobbies. Cooking is a popular hobby among them. If you’ve been wanting to start cooking, but you thought that it was too difficult, here are some fun recipes you should try.

1. Lockdown cake: This special lockdown cake is only THREE ingredients, and it doesn’t take that long to prepare. The three ingredients are your choice of crispy cookies (crispy cookies to make a better dry cake mix), milk, and baking powder. For a small cake, you would first blend the cookies until they turn into crumbs. Measure 1 1/4 cup of that into your mixing bowl, add 1 tbsp of baking powder, and 1/2 cup of warm milk. The warm milk makes the cake mix creamy. Then bake in the oven At 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 35 minutes. You might need to bake a bit longer. After the mini cake is done baking, add any of your favorite toppings. Enjoy!

2. Peanut Butter Cookies: These yummy peanut butter cookies are so simple to make that you’ll want to keep on creating them. The cookie batch consists of 1  cup of peanut butter, 1/2 cup of sugar, and 1  large egg. Mix together thoroughly. This should be enough to make about 12 cookies. Then, take spoonfuls of the cookie dough and place it on a cookie sheet.  Make sure to press down on the ball of cookie dough with a fork to make a small grid.  Bake in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile, melt 1/2 cup of chocolate. When the cookies are done, dip each cookie into the melted chocolate. Yum!

3. Dark Chocolate Truffles: Making these truffles is a very simple task, and it only consists of three ingredients! You will first need to melt 16 oz of dark chocolate in the microwave. Then, mix 1/4 of Greek yogurt. Let it chill in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. After that, use a small ice cream scoop or spoon to roll the chocolate into spheres. Dip each truffle into cocoa powder. Delicious!

There you have it. Simple lockdown recipes that you won’t resist. Once you get into the habit of baking, you’ll become a great baker in quarantine in no time.
