Bake because you can

Lots of us have more time and desire to bake these days, so why not indulge your passion and help a good cause at the same time? Learn more about #bakebecauseyoucan.

Chocolate crinkle cookies

BBC Good Food is encouraging us all to #bakebecauseyoucan and donate to BBC's The Big Night In, which supports charities caring for people adversely affected by the current crisis.*

Here’s how:

  1. Bake your favourite BBC Good Food recipe – why not try chocolate fudge crinkle biscuits or the new chocolate fudge sprinkle-crinkle biscuits we've created especially.
  2. Share a photo on social media, and tag it #bakebecauseyoucan.
  3. Make a donation to The Big Night In.
  4.  Tag three members of your friends and family and suggest what they should bake.

That’s it, super easy! We look forward to seeing your creations on Instagram or join our new Facebook group, BBC Good Food Together.


For more inspiration, our baking recipe collection has everything you need.


*People donating will see their money split equally between BBC Children in Need and Comic Relief, who, in turn, will divide the money out to support local charities – ensuring vital support remains in place for the UK’s most vulnerable people.
