Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread
I followed the recipe exactly and we loved it! Moist with a crunchy top. Just the right balance of molasses and ginger. Used Grandmas brand unsulfured molasses. Topped it with homemade whip cream and sliced bananas. We baked some in cupcake liners as an experiment and liked how that turned out (about 25 minutes at 350*). This has become the favored birthday treat for one of our December birthdays. Met with the approval of the 5yo birthday boy and the rest of the family and guests too.

Angel Food Cake I
I had a ton of leftover egg whites from making a cookie recipe (that called for 16 egg yolks!), so I decided to finally try my hand at making angel food cake from scratch. I'm so glad we tried this one! The recipe worked beautifully. I did make a special trip to the store for cake flour. I sifted the dry ingredients 5 times. I carefully folded dry ingredients into wet (yes, it did eventually combine with this gentle stirring). I started it in a cold oven. In making the recipe as is, it came out beautifully. The almond extract was just the right amount for our family. The "crunchy" bits were especially yummy (waaaaay better than storebought cakes!). This one is a keeper and my kids and dh are begging me to make this as often as the whim hits. I admit, I put off trying this for so many years because I was really intimidated based on reports that angel food cake was just too hard, but this recipe made it flawless. I also appreciated reading the tips below. Now I have friends begging me to tell them how to succeed in making angel food cake!

Oven Pancakes
Back when our eldest was little, we used a recipe identical to this only titled "Dutch Oven Babies". Sadly, we lost the recipe and went many years greatly deprived until one day I happened upon this one. This version is just as awesome and delicious as we remember from all those years ago. I changed nothing in the recipe, making it as is. I *love* the cinnamon/sugar on top of it. And yes, I also found this recipe to be very good with my blood sugars. Yay!
