There’s something magical about baking. Right now, with the world feeling sharp and uncertain, more folks than ever are baking at home. Not only does baking provide a delicious reward, but it also gives us time to spend in the kitchen–either alone or with our loved ones–to focus on something other than the state of the world. I think any baking recipe is a comfort recipe but these twelve are especially lovely.
Easy Gluten-free Sandwich Bread
There’s something wonderfully comforting about making a loaf of bread, especially now. This easy recipe for gluten-free bread is wonderfully soft and is perfect (of course) for sandwiches but it’s also great as a base for French toast.

Gluten-Free Coffee Cake
Do you eat coffee cake just for the streusel? I get it. The good news is that the cake that’s buried under that delicious streusel is equally delicious. It’s a sour cream cake that’s delicious on its own but even better paired with wonderful cinnamon streusel. If you want a grain-free option, I’ve got that too!
