Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2007
Let me start by saying that by trade, I am a baker and cake decorator so I did not goof up this recipe. I am searching for a homemade recipe for my cakes because I tired of all of the unpronounceable chemicals that are in commercial products these days. First off, it did not dome while baking, and as I was removing it from the oven, there was a strong odor of egg coming from it. I let it cool for 20 minutes then taste tested it, egg and orange juice was the dominate flavors. I waited another 40 minutes and tasted it again in a cooled state and the flavor was the same eggy/oj flavors as before. I did not find it to overly sweet, but that maybe because I was overwhelmed by the other two negatively dominate flavors. Usually, I try to salvage test foods, but this one ended up in the compost - there was no saving it. To it's credit, this recipe produces a moist cake.

Hot Chocolate Mix II

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
Very pleased with this recipe! Processing in the food processor is essential as it smooths out any lumps usually found in the powdered milk - yuck. I used equal instead of sugar. I also made this recipe using "Special Dark" cocoa for my husband who LOVES DARK chocolate - he thought it was great. For the dark cocoa version I used equal again and added an additional 1/4 - 1/2 cup of the creamer. I don't advise using the special flavored creamers - stick with the plain creamer. Again, VERY pleased with this recipe.
