4 things to bake that aren’t bread

During the height of the pandemic, yeast was having its most in-demand moment in perhaps all of history right now. While we spent our time social distancing indoors, it appeared many of us have forgotten that grocery stores were still selling bread, and turned to wanting to bake it themselves.Wwhether it be boredom or necessity, we’re betting that you had at least considered the idea if you were running out of things to occupy yourself with.

In the event that this consideration evolved into a hatched plan and you found yourself at the grocery store yeast-less, you had to turn to other baking options. We certainly did. And there are some other rather delicious options out there as we discovered. If you're looking for something to do this weekend, here are four savoury, dough-like recipes to that aren't just bread.


Onion Galette

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: pie dough is not as scary as it seems as long as it’s cold AF. For beginners, galettes are great for a shaggy, craggy, mess-of-a-thing looking dough, adding to the rustic vibe. This version comes in savoury format, and is perfect for literally any meal of the day and as a snack in between.


Saffron and mustard scones with cheddar and piccalilli

Like tiny, savoury bread loaves. Buttered for breakfast or topped with ham for lunch, these scones are a welcome, doughy indulgence in a time when we cannot take enough trips to the refrigerator. Easy and fluffy, chefs kiss!


Citrus and Poppy Olive Oil Loaf

Not savoury, but deserves to be here for its redeeming, loaf-like qualities. Who doesn’t like a citrus pound cake. Zesty, moist (sorry) and rich, this is a welcome 4pm snack. Best paired with a cup of tea and cozy vibes.



Not the English version. These American style biscuits are a fool proof way to get back to bake-sics (sorry again). buttery, flaky, and versatile enough to pair with dinner or dessert, there is essentially nothing to not like.
