It might be time to enjoy the delectable satisfaction of baking for yourself, and in case you need inspiration, here are some mouthwatering 'gram posts from Hongkongers who've been baking up a storm.

Baking inspiration from the world of Instagram

Plates and Bubbles

This Hongkonger has a penchant for cooking, making everything from pasta to spicy kimchi noodle soup, and blessing her followers with well-framed – and immensely appetising– pictures of all her culinary creations to keep mouths watering during these difficult times. She also bakes, and this clementine cake really caught our eye. If it's as good as it looks, then this is one we're certainly interested in trying for ourselves.

This Hong Kong-based home baker was recently thinking outside of the box when cooking up these delectable-looking cinnamon rolls. Soft, fluffy, and oh-so-sweet, these are sure to impress the ones you live with, especially if you double up with some homemade Dalgona coffee. Find the roll recipe here.

Sidney Baking

Sweet things? Certainly, but this Hongkonger has been keeping busy recently by also baking up some savoury creations that look deliciously good. To add to a list of bread that includes spinach and cheese bread, fruit bread, and bluff bread, Sidney Baking has recently baked up Tang Zhong quinoa loaf bread. It sounds more complicated than it is, so give it a try and take inspiration from Sidney Baking, and see if you can get your loaf to look as good as this one.

Finally, we came across this Hong Kong dweller who has been passing the time making one of our all-time favourite doughy snacks, bagels! There's something about baking up bagels that may seem complicated and like it should be left to the pros, but it looks like Breadaholic's attempt was a success.
