More Recipes TikTok Hyped Up During COVID-19

Everyone around the world has been in lockdown and has been quarantined throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. You can only watch so much TV, make so many crafts, and go on so many virtual hangouts.

To make the time go by fast during the day, people downloaded the rising social media app called TikTok. It is a platform that people get lost scrolling through but helped people forget what was going on in the world.

Something that I got into while in lockdown during 2020 was looking at recipes on TikTok. I was so inspired by people sharing the recipes that they grew up with or that they created. TikTok has the potential to give people a space to be themselves that a lot of social networks do not have anymore.

Social media has become so structured that you can’t post anything without being worried about what people are going to say. TikTok also has those factors, however, people are ignoring the trolls and posting whatever makes them happy. And, people have been posting content that Instagram, Facebook, and other platforms do not see.

Here are a few more recipes that blew up throughout the months of March and April of 2020 that I had to try.

Frothed Coffee

  • 2 Tbsp instant coffee
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp hot water
  • 3/4 cup hot or iced milk

Combine coffee, sugar, and hot water in a large bowl. The best thing to do is use an electric mixer or whisk it by hand. It will take a long time! Mix until frothy, it should look like whipped cream. Then you just add the mixture with your milk and enjoy!

Homemade Coffee Cake

  • 8 Tbsp unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups of sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 Tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups of flour
  • 1 Tsp of salt
  • 2 Tsp of baking powder
  • 1/4 Tsp of baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cups sour cream

For the crumble topping:

  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 1/3 brown sugar
  • 2 Tsp cinnamon
  • 8 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 cup flour

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the crumble topping (whisk sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and then add butter and stir to combine. Add flour and use a fork to toss until it’s in crumble form). Mix the butter, sugar, and eggs for the cake. Beat in the dry ingredients and sour cream. Transfer the batter to a 9×13 pan and spread into an even layer. Bake the coffee cake for 40-50 mins.

During quarantine, I developed a love for cooking and trying new recipes. It has helped me relieve stress and makes me very happy.

All of these photos are photos that I took when I made it. I, unfortunately, do not have the account of the TikTok creators who posted these recipes, but I did not create them myself.

  • First I would like to say that the Homemade Coffee Cake looks absolutely delicious! But also I would like to add that during the Covid-19 pandemic, TikTok really blew up in terms of popularity and it’s interesting to see how users react to negative critique and “internet trolls”. Cooking can be such a stress reliever for many, like myself, so it’s awesome to see different recipes and learn how to bake more items.

  • I think this is a really interesting blog topic. Tik Tok has become a household name in such a short amount of time so it is interesting to read about how much it has effected us and how many things go viral because of it. I remembered the frothed coffee going viral and I always wanted to try it! I have never seen the homemade coffee cake one though. It would be cool to hear your thoughts about the finished products!

  • I loveeee coffee cake. Maybe this is something that I’ll try to make. I am definitely a newbie when it comes to cooking because of how basic I eat. I usually eat vegetables, turkey, eggs, and that’s about it. But I want to get better at cooking and having helpful instructions like this will be very beneficial to someone learning how to cook!

    Great post, thanks for sharing!

  • I have heard a lot about the frothed coffee and have always wanted to try it but never got around to it. I’ve never heard or seen videos about homemade coffee cake but it looks and sounds delicious! I think this is a really interesting idea for a blog and I like how much effort you are putting into making each recipe. I would love to hear your thoughts on some of these recipes!
