I made Winnie the Pooh Honey Cakes inspired by the new Disney’s Christopher Robin Movie released August 3rd 2018 and now available on DVD. I know Winnie loves honey so I know he will love these Honey Cakes! I got the honor of getting a sneak peak of the movie this February during the Disney Social Media Moms Conference. Producer Kristin Burr delighted us with clips from the live action movie. One of the clips that brought the room to tears was when Winnie the Pooh is finally reunited with the adult Christopher Robin. In this movie you will see Winnie wake up in The Hundred Acre Woods and can’t find his friends. He then sets off to find Christopher Robin to help him. Christopher Robin is now an adult with a family. He is also struggling with balancing family and the stress of his career. They reunite which of course had me in happy tears. Christopher does finally help Pooh find his friends and you see him play again. Then the real adventure begins when Pooh and his friends decide to leave The Hundred Acre Woods to help Christopher. I love the message of the film and it is very relatable to many of us. I won’t give too much away, but Kristin Burr left us with a quote that really resonated with me. She said in this movie “There is Beauty in doing nothing,” and it couldn’t be more profound to me when sometimes I feel so overwhelmed in life and don’t take in moments. The new “Christopher Robin” movie will be in theaters August 3rd. Don’t miss it and maybe bring some tissue.

-Winnie The Pooh
- 1 cup gluten free flour (I used Arrowhead Mills)
- 2 tsp. corn starch
- 1½ tbsp. melted butter
- 1 egg
- ¾ cup milk
- ¼ cup honey
- In a large bowl mix whisk all ingredients.
- Heat griddle or danish pan to medium heat.
- Spray with oil, I used avocado oil.
- Pour about 1½- 2 tbsp. batter in each crevice, then 1 tsp. honey in the middle. Then cover with another 1½-2 tbsp. of batter
- Cook until top is forms bubbles and flip. About 2-3 minutes on each side. The honey will seep throughout and caramelize the outside of your honey cake. Keep an eye out so it doesn't burn, but caramelize.
- Repeat with remaining pancake batter.
- Serve with berries, drizzle more honey and powdered sugar
