How do I embed recent blog posts on my homepage?

Pretty new to using WordPress and was wondering if there is a way to simply add a recent blog post onto my homepage?

Just want a super simple website. Header – Email opt-in – and then below the email opt-in, just a recent blog post section.

Every time I try and search up how to do this though, it gives me something similar but not exactly what I’m looking for. So if anyone has a blog post/youtube video that explains how to do this, I would be very grateful. Thanks

  1. Out of the box WP puts posts on the homepage. Add an email opt-in widget and you’re done.

    Otherwise use the QUERY block in gutenberg.

    []( has all the tuts you need.
