Cinnamon Nut Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
First of all, I'd like to say that I had no problems with this cake being dry at all. I used milk like the recipe said since I didn't have sour cream or yogurt, and it was very moist. But it was WAY too sweet (and I have a big sweet tooth!). I would omit most of the sugar from the cake itself, the topping has enough sugar to sweeten it. Also, all of the topping sunk and stuck to the bottom of my well greased pan, and we all know what a HUGE pain in the rear it is to get butter and sugar off of a pan. That being said, my little brothers (ages 13 and 10) devoured it!

Chocolate Waffles I

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
After trying a different recipe that stuck to the waffle iron and made a mess, I was excited to try this one that got so many rave reviews, but I was disappointed in it. It did not stick, but they were so dry and crumbly that they fell apart as I took them off of the waffle iron, and we ended up eating inch square pieces that looked "pre-chewed." They were very dry, and even spreading butter on top did not help. I did not make the sauce, so I can't say anything about that. Overall, I was very disappointed, and I will not be making these again.

Vanilla - Chocolate Powdered Sugar Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
I made this recipe exactly as it is posted, except I added a tiny pinch of salt to help with sweetness, as I was not using cocoa, as suggested by another reviwer. I don't know if it was my brain playing tricks on me or what, but when I ate it, it was just nasty. I felt the greasy butter in my mouth. Not to say that I don't like fattening treats once in a while, (probably more often than I should!) but I don't like them to taste like butter when I eat them.
