20 delicious home baking kits to get delivered during lockdown

With lockdown turning all of us into Mary Berry wannabes to varying degrees of success (we have the enthusiasm at the very least), essential baking ingredients are becoming as rare as gold dust, with shoppers diving headfirst for the last bag of flour on the supermarket shelf. And what’s more annoying than having your heart set on a weekend baking project, only for those dreams to be scuppered because you can’t find one vital ingredient? We hear ya.

Thankfully, you can still get your bake on, despite the empty supermarket shelves. While you could look for alternative ingredient swaps, here’s another idea: home baking kits. Turn your attention online and there are plenty of baking kits out there that come complete with everything you need to execute a magnificent bake, ready to be ordered and delivered straight to your door.

From brownies and blondies to biscuits and bread, there’s a kit to create just about everything and anything. And because they come complete with pre-portioned ingredients and easy to follow set-by-step instructions, even the most kitchen averse among us would find it hard to mess these up.

Note that most kits will require you to add at least one or two of your own ingredients, such as eggs, water or butter, but having all the dry ingredients delivered to you takes so much of the hard work out of baking. There are kits for all levels of baker, from novice to advanced, so no one will be bored nor out of their depth. And all tastes are catered for too – chocolatey, fruity, alcoholic and even tea-infused, it’s all there.

With these home baking kits, the hardest part is waiting for the timer to ding so you can dig in. Sharing optional.
