The 10 most popular recipes everyone is Googling during lockdown

Banana bread and pancakes will get us through this.


Looking at someone's Google search history is like peering into their soul. And according to Google Trends, the world is finding comfort in carbs right now, which totally checks out.

Since March 1, recipes have been trending up in a major way—thanks in no small part to stay-at-home orders that have been instituted around the globe, forcing folks to hunker down and cook for themselves. The search platform also revealed its most in-demand recipe inquiries, with banana bread landing the top spot.

It's no surprise that 60 percent of the most searched recipes are sweets, including pancakes, brownies, French toast and cheesecake. On the savory front, chicken, pizza dough, meatloaf and lasagna top the charts.
