“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 //
If you peek into the archives, you’ll see a lot of healthy/alternative baking recipes. I still love exploring a variety of recipes in my free time, but lately, I’ve been getting back to my nerdy roots by analyzing the best baking recipes on the internet. I got tired of sifting through hundreds of gorgeous recipes on Pinterest in hopes of finding a recipe that tasted as good as it looked. So I decided to actually test a bunch of recipes head-to-head to find the actual best in each category–and invite my friends over to gather real-time feedback.
So far, I’ve tested chocolate chip cookies, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, and brownies, among others. If you’d like to see a specific bake off subject in the future, drop me a line at erika at thepancakeprincess dot com or via instagram!

I started The Pancake Princess in 2012, right after I graduated from college. Originally from near San Francisco, I moved to Houston for school and never left–I’ve been here for almost 10 years! I was an English major in undergrad, received my MBA from Rice University in 2016 and have enjoyed applying my skills to baking spreadsheets ever since. I also do freelance food writing for Houston Press on the side!
I’m deeply interested in dessert, enjoy long surfs at the beach, harbor aspirations to move to Australia, and will never say no to a bite or five of layer cake.
Thanks for visiting!!
