Its the Last Day…

.. and we’re really sad! We’ve gotten so used to constantly brainstorming on jelly ideas, filling the upturned jelly mould with weird and zanny things, walking back and forth from the fridge, buying jelly ingredients… you get the idea. Its been a pretty harrowing past month, but we’ve enjoyed every single minute of it! Plus, the fact that its for a fantastic cause – Breast Cancer Awareness – makes the fun all that much sweeter.

So today, for our big finale, we have….. (drumroll, please)…. PANCAKES!

Yes, that’s right. We present conical-shaped pancakes today. Its quite a bit of work, but totally, totally worth it for the final effect…

We used my fail-safe pancake recipe, that’s been used for everything from good-luck-go-get-em start of the day boosters to fixing midnight best friend emotional breakdowns!

Rachel’s Pancakes

Ingredients

2 cup flour, plus 3 tbsps flour

2 eggs

2 cups buttermilk (or, as I do, add a tiny layer of vinegar to full fat milk)

1/2 cup sugar

2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1. Mix eggs, add buttermilk, oil, and the rest of the ingredients (or just blend them all in the blender)

2. Cook them on a wide frying pan with lots and lots of butter! Spoon them out in 1/4 cup amounts (or 1/2 cups depending on how big you like your pancakes)

One thing I like to do in between pancakes to ensure that they don’t start getting too black with all the residue hot fat is to wipe down the pan between pancakes.

You can practically smell them, can’t you?? We couldn’t use the first few because we just kept gobbling them down at first!

No stack better than a pancake stack!

Okay, now for the fun bit….

Basically,  because we didn’t want to stuff the pancakes into the mould like we did with the Tres Leches cake, we decided to cut it down to small individual sizes to fit the jelly mould! Tedious, but look at my face, we’re having fun, as always!

Infinity Pancake! Guess what? There’s a Pancake Day, where people race against each other whilst flipping pancakes!!

Well I guess that’s all, but first we’d like to say some quick words!

Sophia and I had a fantastic two months interning at Royal Selangor as well, with some of the most amazing, warm, creative and fun people to be around – Carolyn, Anne, Shamaine, Syazana and so many, many other people who put up with our kookiness with great sportiness. We just want to thank everyone, including you, for being so supportive of our little project and to head on over to the Get Your Jelly On page to support the other bloggers, Royal Selangor and maybe even buy a jelly mould for Breast Cancer Awareness!

We love you guys!!!

Love,

Rachel and Sophia, who are now off to University and a whole new chapter of their lives!
