Ahem. Well that title was a mouthful. Yep, this week we attempted to bake six Pokémon all at once. As you can imagine, it took a while (but not as long as you’d think!) and writing it up also took a while, which is why this post is late (sorry!). We felt it was logical to do both male and female Nidoran lines all in one recipe because essentially they’re the all the same family, they just differ by gender. Did anyone else find it weird that in the first Pokémon game only Nidoran had a gender? And subsequently when genders and breeding were introduced for all Pokémon, that Nidoking and Nidoqueen can’t breed? Japan, you are cray-cray…Anyways, the recipe is for fruit & chocolate cupcakes, specifically blackberry & milk chocolate for the female line and raspberry & white chocolate for the male line (specifics for each mon detailed below). Yup, pink for boys and blue for girls, because gender norms are silly, right? Now, let’s make lots and lots of cupcakes!
Welcome back Bakétrainers! Apologies for our slightly delayed recipe this week, both us Bakémon masters have been very busy with college deadlines and haven’t had much time to write up Pokérecipes. Never fear though! The baking will of course go on, and this week we present to you Ekans and Arbok slezterp (pretzels…coz you know…Ekans & Arbok is backwards for Snake & Kobra…) We wanted something both snakey and different to represent these two, and seeing as making something poisonous wasn’t really an option we decided to go with pretzels. We made classic salty pretzels for Ekans and evolved to cinnamon & sugar Arboks using, get this, purple sugar! They were all really really tasty and basically all disappeared overnight in our apartment. Which is probably just as well because pretzels don’t really keep for longer than a day or two, so if you don’t have as many mouths to feed as we do we strongly suggest reducing this recipe to your needs! If you’ve never made pretzels before (we hadn’t!) then you’re in for a treat!
