Welsh Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
Very good. Welsh cakes tend to get stale quickly, so they are best eaten fresh the same day, preferably warm.

Peach Cobbler VI

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
I've never baked cobbler before as it is not a dish known in the UK. This recipe was easy, and it turned out perfectly. I prefer to cook with butter, so I subsituted 125 gms (4 oz) of Anchor butter for the margarine which probably improved the flavour. I served it with homemade vanilla icecream and everyone wanted seconds. I will definitely make this again.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
Great recipe. A WORD OF WARNING: Don't make/pour the syrup over the lattice ahead of time as it will crystallize. Do it just before you put it in the oven. If you make the syrup earlier, put it inside the pie, where you won't notice that it has crystallized. A full pie lid works just as well as the lattice. I add 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp fresh nutmeg to the syrup mixture. I reduce the water by 1.5 tablespoons, add 1 tablespoon of Calvados, and 1 tsp vanilla into the syrup just before pouring 3/4ths over apples and 1/4th through the lattice. I've also added 4 whole cloves to the syrup and fished these out before pouring over. I like Braeburn apples in this best, cut finely to ensure they cook through. When using sweet apples I reduce the sugar stated in the recipe. Adding handful of sultanas/golden raisins is a nice variation and is reminiscent of strudel. I brush the base of the crust with egg wash to stop the bottom being soggy and use my own recipe for flaky pastry which is enough for one 9"-10" covered pie and a pastry pie base or 2 x 8" covered pies.

Poor recipe and tastes odd. Nothing like a traditional English Cottage Pie.

English Bread and Butter Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
Not bread and butter pudding at all. It was like bread pudding and we hated it.

No Bake Peach Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
Extremely easy and tasty. I made a pie crust with some left over flaky pastry, and as it is winter, I used a large can of peaches in juice. I substituted the juice from the peaches instead of water, Splenda instead of sugar and added a few drops of almond extract. I needed to add some extra water, possibly because the fruit juice was a little thick, and it turned out perfectly. It took a bit of rearranging to get the mixture through the the layers of peach slices, so next time I'll put it on while the sauce is warm and put a top layer of peach slices on afterwards.

Perfect Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
I didn't have kosher salt, so I used ordinary salt, which didn't work so well and left the turkey a bit salty. So my advice to anyone making this is to use kosher/rock/Maldon salt, not fine granulated salt, and rinse it under running water really, really well then pat dry before cooking. If it had not been a bit salty, I would give it 5 stars. I used the rosemary/olive oil mixture as recommended by Kristin, which was delicious. I put the turkey in a roasting bag and used two big meat forks to turn it breast side up about 2/3rds the way through. It didn't fall apart and was beautifully golden brown. A lot of liquid came out during cooking which I kept removing after basting and it made a lovely gravy, together with the drained stock I made by cooking the giblets & neck with a bouquet garni, celery, onions and peppercorns. The turkey was incredibly moist and I will definitely make it again, but I will use kosher/Maldon salt, and RINSE IT VERY, VERY WELL.

Very nice and warming on a cold winter day, but not really traditional Fijian dhal.

Tomato Soup Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
A really interesting cake, not the best cake ever, but pretty good. It was moist but we couldn't detect the tomato at all, which is probably a good thing. I omitted the salt, used low sodium soup and unsalted butter and it was fine.

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
Totally yummy. I had to make a second batch as the first disappeared so quickly. I used stewed apple left instead of apple butter. Would recommend

Banana Cake V

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
Pretty good. We made this last weekend and it was gone in four days. Not quite as tasty as the one in the Edmond's Cookbook, but still very good. I used a simple butter icing with a few walnut halves on top.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
Excellent. I used really ripe bananas and didn't bother with the topping. Truly scrumptious.
