Covid-19 cooking trends: Everyone is making banana bread, apparently

I just finished blogging about one study on how the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted American cooking and eating habits. And now a second study has crossed my desk, this one looking at the most searched for recipes since the pandemic began.

Banana bread (which I don’t like or eat, by the way) was the number one recipe searched for in all 50 states in April, found Bid on Equipment.

Tiny Rhode Island had the most searches for banana bread recipes, followed by New Jersey and Washington state.

So obviously the country likes banana bread more than I do and is finding some comfort in making it. More interesting, because of the range of choices, is which recipes came in second in every state. Regional differences can clearly be seen there.
This map made me chuckle, reminding me of something I encountered many years ago as a young college student leaving my  Italian-American household in New York City to attend college in Milwaukee. Casseroles were not something my mother ever cooked, but in Milwaukee, and across Wisconsin, they seemed to be in every meal I was served!

And lo and behold, green bean casserole was number two in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska and Iowa in this research. You also can see that the South is the meatloaf belt, apparently.

Bid on Equipment is an online marketplace for the buying and selling of used industrial machinery and equipment, including restaurant and bakery equipment.
