“Every day I would go home and bake, because that’s what you do when you love to bake–you bake.” – Christina Tosi
// about the blog //
I used to be really into healthy/alternative baking; currently I’m on a bake off kick–which means I’m fixated on finding the best versions of chocolate chip cookies, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, and more. Have a suggestion for a bake off? Drop me a line at erika at thepancakeprincess dot com or via instagram!

I am the baker, photographer and typo-maker behind The Pancake Princess. Originally from near San Francisco, I have since transplanted to Houston, where I’ve alternated between school and work for the past nine years. While in Houston, I’ve managed to avoid cowboy boots, hats, two stepping, and any fondness for queso, but I’ve fallen woefully hard under the spell of the breakfast taco and the relatively low cost of living that makes travel possible.
In my sophomore year of college, I came to the realization that despite years of watching my mother put home-cooked food on the table every night, I had no idea how to cook. A year of living off-campus forced me to learn how to cook, and I just haven’t really left the kitchen since. I’m deeply interested in dessert, very interested in plant-based recipes inspired by places I’ve been, and fond of healthful eating that tastes good.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy!
