Pinterest in Reality Week 2: Baking

Welcome to week two of my Pinterest in Reality Blog Series!

This series is all about seeing if what we see on Pinterest is actually possible to recreate in 'real life'. I know I'm not the only one who spends hours on end flicking through Pinterest, thinking I'll give different things a go but u never do. So over the next 8 weeks I've set myself 8 categories and each week I choose a pin and try and recreate it. You can read my full blog series intro here

This week is all about baking. This was a pretty hard category for me. I love baking, but don't always have the time (or money) to get on with it. On Pinterest, I have pinned absolutely loads of different cakes, cookies and sweet treats, and picking one out of the lot was really, really difficult

This week, I needed something really quick to do, because I've had a pretty hectic weekend and wanted a quick, sweet fix. I've had this basic recipe pinned for a while, with the idea of baking protien pancakes in the same way. I KNOW this is completely basic, but with a hangover and not alot of time, this is exactly what I needed. Heres what I used: 

I followed the Pin's advice and used a pancake ready mix - This Aunt Bessies one was 85p from the corner shop. I used my mini cupcake maker for easy use, and sprinkled on some cinnamon and cadburys buttons chopped up. This was my end result:

Shit, I know. I didn't even like the taste of these, and pancakes are one of my favourite things in the world. I probably should have mixed my own, but I was looking for a quick fix. They look OK, but I don't think I'd make these again! 

What did you bake this week?



  1. Did the Yorkshire Pudding mix and chocolate not taste at all? A weird combination indeed!! I've seen this on Pintrest, but I think I'll skip it now!

  2. It was horrible! Normal pancakes using this mix are amazing, but theses little cakes we're more like dumplings! Haha!
