Sourdough Starter

Another one that has taken over our Instagram feeds – who knew bubbling yeast would prove (pun intended) so popular? Whilst it may take a little more skill, a bit of babysitting and potentially a few goes, home-made sourdough is totally worth it. Top it off with some smashed avo and you’ll fancy yourself as the next Gordon Ramsey. It doesn’t end there either, these starters can become much more than classic sourdough, think crumpets and crackers.

Dalgona Coffee

If you don’t have that inner baker within, this one is probably one of the easiest trending recipes. It requires minimal effort by whipping coffee powder, sugar and hot water together and simply topping up with some milk – et voila! Add some cocoa powder or crumbled biscuits to make it all the more instagrammable.
