Chocolate Black Tea Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
Only one word I can say "Fabulous". This recipe was very easy to make for inexperienced cook like me. But the taste was just perfect. I did several changes due to what I had in my kitchen such as self-rising flour, sweetened cocoa powder, and my favorite strong tea. I skipped the hazelnuts and put a bit less sugar. Also, I sprigkeled it with cocoa powder instead of confectioner's sugar cause I didn't have it -__-. Many thanks for the real good and simple cake recipe. I'll make it again and again.

Apple Turnovers

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
I got a Granny Smith apple hanging around on my kitchen bench for over a week. Didn't like eating old apples so I searched for an easy and quick recipe. I got this one and I whipped it up within 30 minutes! I adjusted the serving size to 2 so the recipe called for 1 apple. Turned out I could make 4 pieces. I skipped the water bath and added 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. Also, I didn't bother making the frosting. Next time I'll egg wash them and sprinkle with raw sugar before baking. Got problem with the sealing too though I pressed them using a fork and cut a slit. A tip that I'll try next time is to brush the edges of pastry with egg wash which will act like a glue helping the pastry to stick together. I don't understand why some reviewers rated this recipe based on problems they had with working with puff pastry. Just find something to read and you'll know how to handle it properly. Btw, I ate 2 of these in one go. :P

I've used this recipe for many things such as sausage bread rolls and custard bread scrolls. I followed the recipe to the T and they turned out perfect every time. Thank you so much for the wonderful recipe.

French Breakfast Muffins

Very easy to make and they taste nice. Nutmeg and cinnamon gave me feeling of comfort and pleasure. Having these with a cup of coffee in the morning would definitely make my day. Thank you for the recipe.

Chocolate Icebox Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
It seems unfair if I rated this recipe 4 stars because I didn't follow it to the letter. I prefer oreo crust rather than ladyfingers. I used ordinary dark chocolate that contains 62% cocoa for more bitterness. I found it a bit too sweet for me so next time I will add a bit more of whipped cream (300 ml). But overall I have to say this cake is perfect when I crave for a chocolate treat. It's light, fluffy, bitter and sweet. Oooh yum!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2010
I didn't have bread flour on hand so I substituted it with all-purpose flour as some reviewers mentioned. My cinnabons tasted very nice but the texture was cake-like. I will have to use only bread flour next time. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2013
I like the fact that this recipe can be used to make either savory or sweet muffins. Just cut down the sugar to 2 tbsp and add 1/2 salt.Add your favorite chopped veggies, bacon, and loads of cheese. I've made blueberry muffins for the sweet ones. They were yummy. Will make them again and again with different variations. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Gourmet Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
Thank you very much for the great recipe. I always use Jay's Signature Pizza Crust also found on this website for all kinds of pizza. And, I took Sweetee219's idea to add some bacon. My pizza tasted so good!

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
This is the very first time I made my own pizza and even started from scratch. My bf and I love Pizza Hut pan style and this one turned out just right! Crunchy edges but tender and moist on the inside....emmmm...mm! I seperated the dough in half and made two medium-size super supreme pizzas. My bf said they were just like Pizza Hut's ones but my ones were better with fresh ingredients, less oil, less salt, and made with love. A million thanks to you, Jay! I wish I could give you a million stars too.

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
I had these scones with lemon curd, which I found the recipe on this website as well. They were heavenly delicious!! Also, they're very easy to make. I didn't use a food processor because I didn't have it. But I still made the dough with an ease. Thank you so much for the fabulous recipe.

One Minute Chocolate Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
Easy and tasty! I followed the recipe except using mixer. I just whisked it by hand and it still turned out great. As ROSEMC91 recommended, I used this icing with Dark Chocalate Cake I which is also on this site. The cake tasted better and looked very nice. Million thanks!

Best Burger Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012
Thank you so much for this recipe. I love the sauce in Bic Mac burgers but don't love the beef patties. My bf always buys Angus minced beef and he makes burgers for me. The homemade burgers taste better but they're missing that sauce...UNTIL NOW! Thanks again.

Lamingtons

Reviewed: May 25, 2013
I halved the recipe and made 6 cupcakes coz It's easier for me to dip the cake only at the top. I separated eggs, beat the egg whites and fold them in the batter to make the cake lighter. I gotta say I loved these more than store-bought ones. I'm in NZ btw. Thank you for the recipe.

Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2012
Would have given 5 stars but I had to make some adjustments as the previous reviewers suggested. I reduced the amount of sugar down a little bit and used half white half brown sugar. The second time I left bananas out and I think I liked them better. I added in 1 shot of brewed espresso instead of using instant coffee. My best friend had two muffins in one go and took another two more home LOL.

Hong Kong Style Egg Tarts

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
I used frozen puff pastry instead because I like flaky pastry rather than flat tart shells. Plus, it takes much less time. I halved the recipe and made 8 tarts. Next time I would add more sugar or even honey since the puff pastry is not sweet. My friend said the tarts are more like Portuguese style you normally find in Macau. I don't really care. They are yummy anyway!

Nannie's Hot Milk Sponge Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2012
I couldn't resist adding 1/4 cup butter. Though the tradeoff was the cake wouldn't rise as it should but I'd prefer the buttery and moist cake anytime. I whipped the egg whites seperately and gentlely folded it in to make the cake light. Also, I reduced the sugar to 180 g and added 1/4 tsp salt. Lining the cake pan with baking paper helped the cake come out from the pan so easily. Thank you for the crazy good yet simple recipe.
