As the world has been in lockdown for more than two months many have turned to baking as a way to destress and stay busy.

While many have made banana bread, fudge and sourdough the latest trend sees home bakers whipping up dessert burgers in a very Instagram friendly trend. 

The extravagant snack has taken over social media, with cafes all over the world selling their own as well as those at home making their own version of the treat. 

Dessert burgers first hit the foodie scene in 2016, but they've seen a resurgence in lockdown with many sharing snaps online.   

Not unlike a classic burger, the new concoction uses a patty, topping and sauce wedged in bread.

But rather than a meaty burger, the inside is a sweet treat, which could be ice cream, cookies, fruit, brownies or cake. 

The bread can be brioche, waffle, cinnamon buns, scones or doughnuts, and they're often slathered in chocolate or fruit sauce and a cream for extra indulgence.  

One Instagram user, who goes by @SaffySweetTreats, shared a video of her creation which had layers of cookie, chocolate cheesecake, brownies, more cheesecake and strawberries topped off with another cookie layer

Another, from Bishop's Cleeve in Gloucestershire, shared their impressive bake showing chocolate sauce in bread with strawberries.   

A third UK user, inigo_eats, from the UK posted a very indulgent version featuring oreos and strawberries inside a classic burger bun.

It comes as Instagram users are also baking indulgent doughnuts at home as restaurants and cafes stay shut amid the coronavirus pandemic.

London-based Doughnut Time is selling kits to make extravagant bakes at home - including a vegan lotus biscoff doughnut and a indulgent chocolate twists.

 Other social media users have baked up red velvet doughnuts, and chocolate orange offerings which are sure to stand out on any Instagram feed.  

WHAT ARE PEOPLE MAKING IN LOCKDOWN?  

Cookies, pizza bases – and banana bread – are among the top treats Brits have been making during the lockdown. 

A study of 2,000 adults discovered exactly what culinary delights have been created over the last few months, with sausage rolls, sourdough bread and lemon drizzle cake also proving popular. 

Pancakes topped the poll, with cookies, chocolate cake and cupcakes close behind. VE day celebrations seem to have had an influence as well with the quintessentially British scones and Victoria sponge making the top 10.

 It also emerged the time spent baking has increased, with 67 minutes a week now spent kneading, sieving and rolling – compared to just 41 minutes previously. 

And for more than one in four, the additional time they now have has allowed them to be more creative in the kitchen.

The research, commissioned by KitchenAid, also revealed a fifth of those polled have even baked for the first time ever, while 23 percent of avid bakers have increased their repertoire.
