Bread has been a staple food in our Western diets for many thousands of years. The baked dish is formed by combining water, flour, yeast, and salt… it sounds simple for sure, but you’d be surprised how few adults can claim to have baked bread themselves. That is until now. Google trends during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic point to a surge in people searching online for help baking bread at home.
Are you self-quarantined or sheltering in place? Food delivery services are becoming less and less dependable as many hundreds of thousands of workers are staying home, unable to rely on a quick trip to the grocery store to stock the kitchen.
Home Baking Association has got you covered. For many years we have been a valuable resource for educators, parents, community service volunteers, scratch-bakers and anyone else interested in baking. We love sharing baking with others.
Please feel free to browse our website for informative step-by-step tutorials, delicious recipes, and activities to entertain your kids.
