We Tried 9 Levain Cookie Recipes | The Pancake Princess

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


In this bake off, I baked 8 different Levain dark chocolate peanut butter cookie recipes in one day and tasted them alongside the original Levain, shipped in from New York!

We found a clear winner that looked almost identical to the original, but flavor-wise, I had two different favorites. The full breakdown, including the data analysis, will be live on my blog shortly!

In case you’re new here, in each bake off:
– I bake 9-12 different recipes in one day
– Samples of each get distributed to a team of 20-40 tasters
– Tasters rank each sample for flavor, texture and overall appeal
– We analyze the data and rank each cookie according to the scores!

Bill Pearce says:

Nice video, very informative, which I appreciate, but, BUT, please either turn the volume of the music WAY down or even better, NO MUSIC! Those watching your type of video will be primarily interested in learning INFORMATION, they are not interested in being forced to hear YOUR choice of music.

Wendy Taylor says:

I don’t think The Domestic Rebel didn’t refrigerate the cookies long enough.

wapose kadin says:

You have a great review or the recipe but the background music is a little to loud sometimes I need to rewind so I could understand you. And I hope you will include to your video or in your direction below the brands of ingredients you use mostly the cocoa powder, peanut butter chips etc. But I love the video you are honest it's very informative. I hope you will more videos like this 😊😊


Clarisse Tan says:

Great job, but i am surprise that you did not try out de la serna and Joshua Weissman's recipe since these videos have the highest view count on Youtube.

chinchin paderna says:

Is your vlog about cookies or is it about your background music ?

Gözde Bee says:

That was what I’ve waited for 😍

Aj _ says:

Why not compare with Delish cookies too? ❤️
