Our favourite internet food trends
22 May 2020

Staying home has made us all lil’ chefs and bakers and honestly that's one of the many wholesome things that have come out of Circuit Breaker. With everyone having more time kitchen, the amount of creative recipes popping up is hard to keep track. We're no longer on the Dalgona Coffee phase (feels like forever ago), we've evolved to pancake cereals, and all the way to restaurant-worthy burnt cheesecakes. Of all the food trends so far, which has been your favourite so far?

Dalgona Coffee

This pretty much took over all our feeds for the first few weeks of Circuit Breaker, it was almost impossible to not see at least one of our friends posting a picture of their own dalgona coffee. It seemed pretty easy, the recipe calls for one part instant coffee, one part hot water and one part sugar, and all of our time and energy to whisky this into a creamy consistency. Once you get a whipped cream texture, pour it over a glass of milk and ice (snap a pic) and enjoy!

Three ingredient peanut butter cookie

I know, it sounds too good to be true. These cookies are without the hassle (no complex ingredients or elaborate steps, and no separating the dry and wet ingredients), just one simple bowl to mix everything in. All you need is an egg, peanut butter and sugar and about 30 minutes of your time. If you’re feeling fancy, throw in some chocolate chips, and voilá! It's the perfect comfort food for a rainy day.

Once you’re done cooking, the presentation is equally important, because if you didn’t post it on Instagram, did it actually happen?

We love these plates from Table Matters, which is inspiring enough to spend more time in the kitchen just to use them. They have bakeware too, which makes anything look even more delicious. Table Matters collection focuses on expert quality style and function - it’s made with premium class porcelain so it can withstand heat and bake food evenly. With a wide range of designs, inspired by nature and art, you can definitely find a style that suits your taste!

Pancake cereal

One of the newest food trend to hit social media is the pancake cereal, cause basic pancakes are well... basic. It's exactly how it sounds like, pancakes so small that you would eat them like how you eat cereal. You can jazz them up with toppings of your choice - oreos, cookie crumbs, strawberries, nuts - the world is your pancake. The recipe is really simple, just make your usual pancake batter, pour it into a squeeze bottle (or a ziplock bag with one end cut), cook and enjoy!

Elaborate dinners

Not much of an internet trend, but something that we’ve started seeing more of. People mastering their family recipes and learning how to cook nourishing meals with flavourful side dishes. Nothing really beats a home-cooked meal, especially when mum (or dad) makes it. If you're not staying at home with your parents, you may have called them up to ask them for the recipe for your favourite dish growing up, and tried cooking it at home.

Showoff your masterpiece with Tablematters, sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face. We particularly love the Magnolia Collection which has a delicate and dainty white magnolias set against a sky-blue background.

This set is both beautiful and durable, a combination that lasts. Share an intimate meal with your loved ones and feed your tummies with warm food.

If you're spending more time cooking and baking in the kitchen, do it in style and pay later with Atome to split your bill into three and enjoy 0% interest instalments.

Love It. Own it. Pay later.
