Absolute Best Pancake Syrup
Luscious! I made the exact ingredients called for. The only cooking method I changed was I let it cook a little longer than 10 seconds hoping it would darken the color (it did not and mine was very pale almost looked turkey gravy) and I added the vanilla after I took it off the heat. It was fantastic and a nice change from the traditional maple syrup. I won't replace it but will add it to the line up :) I did make it ahead to let it cool & thicken prior to using.

Black Magic Cake
Never going back to a box again! I have never had much success with homemade, they were either dry or too dense. This recipe is PHENOMENAL! Deep, rich chocolatey flavor, almost fudgy. Light and fluffy and so moist, not dense at all. I followed the recipe to a T except I added about 2 tblsp extra cocoa (I ran out of the good stuff and was trying to compensate). I made cupcakes, 24 exactly, cooked for 18 minutes (I also only baked one pan at a time). A couple of tips: I used cupcake liners but next time will ALSO add cooking spray. (they were so moist, when I used a small knife around the edge to loosen, I destroyed a few). You must know these are SO delicate! I'm not sure how people are doing layers and decorating for bdays, I barely survived cupcakes! The cocoa I used was 1/2 c Ghiradelli and 1/4 c Hershey. Will use all Ghiradelli next time Do not overbake If your cupcakes runneth over, quickly & gently take a paring knife around the edges to loosen while warm, put on a rack to cool I had no problems with them running over and out of my pans at all. I filled my cupcakes up about 2/3 of the way. They do not "mound" on the top but they also did not fall in the center when cooled. Sort of just perfectly flat on top. Needless to say I wouldn't change a thing. May make some homemade caramel to drizzle over the top with a sprinkling of sea salt.

Amazing Slow Cooker Chocolate Cake
I tried this recipe some time ago and have been pondering how to describe its texture. First, the flavor is awesome, very deep chocolate. Second - I love the use of the crock pot. That being said, the texture was very odd. As others posted, mine cooked uneven (I did not peek and let it sit after it was done). The outer edges were bitter. The correctly cooked part looked awesome and even came out in slices like a normal cake. Its when I bit into it. I wouldn't describe it as rubbery but the best was I can describe is like a cake pop (which I detest). Looks good but tastes gooey like it has been soaked in something. BE WARNED - this is not your typical light and fluffy cake.
