Here’s What Upper West Siders are Baking With All That Flour and Yeast They’re Buying

The baking aisle at Upper West Side supermarkets has been as bare as the toilet paper aisle.

It’s enough to leaven your spirits, or make you challah from the rooftops!

Check out these biscuits and other delights from Kate Groob:

Mary Pflum Peterson has been teaching her four children about baking. Ahh, if only we could audit these classes! “We are incorporating my own brand of Home Economics class into the kids’ extensive remote learning schedule. We bake every day – cakes, cookies, brownies, pie,” she wrote.

Svetlana Rabey of West 74th Street is also making delicacies, and her 7-year-old son has been gobbling them up. “It’s helping the son grow tall, and the husband grow fat,” her husband Colin tells us.

Hila Paldi made rolls using this recipe. and showed us the progression.

Laura made chocolate whiskey cake!

Sam said she had some yeast nearing expiration, so she made these fluffy biscuits:
