These Crait-Cakes are a Paid Promotion for Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
It is no secret, we love Star Wars. Remember when we did 3 recipes for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story? Well, we were asked to create some new recipes for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Therefore, we’ve created not 1 but 2 brand new recipes for the latest addition to the Star Wars franchise. The first of the two recipes we’re sharing is for Crait-cakes! Our Crait-cakes are a fun Star Wars inspired version of red velvet pancakes!
In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, “With the destruction of the Republic, the evil First Order reigns. Now, Supreme Leader Snoke looks to crush what’s left of the Resistance and cement his grip on the galaxy. But hope survives: Rey has found Luke Skywalker, a legendary Jedi Master who can change the tide of war.”
The inspiration for our Crait-Cakes comes from the terrain of the planet Crait. Crait has a thick crust of white-colored salt covering nearly the entire planet surface, with a red-colored mineral base beneath. The scenes from Crait had some of the most stunning visuals of the film. It only made sense to have one of our recipes use it as inspiration. We substituted sugar for salt and created a red base with red velvet pancakes! Who doesn’t want to have a Star Wars inspired breakfast or better yet, brunch?
We hope you enjoy our recipe for Crait-cakes! Star Wars: The Last Jedi is out now on Digital HD and Blu-ray! Be sure to check back later this afternoon for our next recipe which will feature everyone’s favorite BB-Series Astromech Droid!
