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?
