Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
This is really easy to make compared to the recipes I tried previously. Cake was soft and moist. As recommended I only used 2 1/4 cup cake flour, buttermilk instead of milk and 1 tblsp of red coloring. But personally it was a tad too sweet for me. Maybe I'll use less sugar next time, there's definitely a lot more of next times. Oh and I've made similar frosting before but never with sour cream. That definitely made it tasted yummier!

Red Velvet Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
Cake: Made these as cupcakes for my daughter's birthday today. Followed recipe to the T except adding another tblsp cocoa powder and 1 1/2oz of coloring as that was the whole bottle. Was shocked when I had to use the whole bottle of the red coloring.....didn't realize 2oz is quite a lot. The cake was soft and moist even though I didn't use oil as other reviewers recommended. My kids loved them. Topping: Instead of cooling the flour mixture I just put it in the mixer until it cools down to room temperature and add the rest of the ingredients. It definitely taste like whipping cream. My only problem was it was overwhelmingly sweet. So to save the cream and cut down the sweetness, I used a package of cream cheese and 1/2c shortening. Beat the cheese and shortening in the mixer till lumps are gone and quite fluffy and add about 3/4 of the original topping and beat again till fluffy.

Clark Gable Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
I've had this recipe for so long and have been making these again and again but I always forgot to leave a comment. My family just love these pancakes. They are just so easy to make. These babies will turn out thick but fluffy.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2008
This cookie is truly amazing even though I changed all the ingredients in the title. My kids were asking for choc chip cookies but I wanted to try this recipe. So we compromised. Took out all the spices and raisins and used choc chips and milk chocolate chunks. Kept all the other ingredients the same. They were crunchy on the outside and soft insides and sweetness was just right. I made 41 big fat cookies and it took me about 15 minutes to cook. Thank you Beth for sharing.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
I finally made this after keeping the recipe for so long. But I had to substitute the blueberries with dried berries(cranberry, strawberry, cherry, blueberry etc) as fresh blueberries are too expensive. Used the exact measurements given. Tasted good except I would prefer if it had been a little moist. It didn't rise over the paper big liner with 7 muffins, so they looked quite flat. Next time I'll make only 6 huge ones.

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
Made only half of the recipe as fresh blueberries are way too expensive here. Also added some cinnamon and nutmeg. I LOOOVE the texture of this muffin... so soft and moist. I think this need a little bit more sugar as other viewers suggested. My problem was with the blueberries. This is the first time I tasted fresh blueberries, and it tasted so bland. Is this how it's suppose to taste? Next time I'll try using canned or pie filling blueberries. Other than the sweetness, I'd prefer this to "To Die For Blueberry Muffin" recipe.

Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
Baked about 45 min in 9"x9" cake pan. I didn't taste the cake on its own 'cos I wanted to do more to it. Cut the cake in half and spread strawberry filling(heat 2C crushed strawberries, 1/4C sugar, 4tblsp jelly crystals and 2tblsp lemon juice). For the topping, I whipped 300 ml whipping cream, add it a package of already whipped cream cheese and 1/2C icing sugar.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
I used my bread machine for the first time and baked my first bread. I was so easy and tasty. I accidently used the wrong bake setting but it still turn out good. Maybe it would taste even better if use the right setting. Used melted butter instead of oil. (Update) Tried it using multi-purpose flour. It tasted even better with a softer texture.

Dark Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
This is The Chocolate Cake recipe. So moist and chocolaty. I've abandoned all my other chocolate cake recipes. This pairs deliciously with Carol's Chocolate Cheese Frosting.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2007
I used 8 pieces of croissant but found that the custard mix not enough to soak them. So altogether made the custard mix with 6 eggs, 3C milk and 1C sugar. Threw in some toasted walnuts, choc chips and dried cranberries. Excluded the cinnamon though. Served with vanilla ice cream. Excellent! Children commented that it tasted just like the ones at a deli here.

Chocolate Pound Cake III

Reviewed: May 5, 2006
Moist and delicious. Made exactly as recipe but lessened the sugar to 2C. Used a 10" non-stick bundt pan and mine was done in 50 minutes(at 145 degrees celcius). Used a simple glaze on it. Put on double boiler a bar of chocolate(any flavour), 50g butter, 4 tblsp milk and a handful of sugar. When everything has melted just stir till smooth and pour on cake. Heavenly!!! Update- Made this again yesterday, but used 3 packed cups brown sugar. Just as good! Now I'm thinking of making this into cupcakes.

White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
Tried twice with both white(didn't have chips) and chocolate chunks. I think it tasted better with milk chocolate chunks. Maybe I should try with white chocolate chips next time.

Deep Dish Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
These are definitely way better than the Best Brownie from this site. I tried both recipes a few times. I'm always getting requests to make this that now I'm charging them. I doubled the all the ingredients and baked in a 12"x12" pan. I made some adjustments with 1/2C melted butter, 1/2C vegetable oil, 2C sugar and spread 1/2C roasted walnuts on top the brownie just before baking. Baked 30 ~ 35 min. Topped the brownies with a chocolate glaze. Melt a bar(220g) of your favorite chocolate, 50g butter and 4 tblsp milk. Sometimes I sell them as a whole cake and and at other times in small squares. I totally forgot to thank Biz McMahon for this recipe :). TQssss

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2006
Made these yesterday. Have a hard time keeping the kids out of the cookie jar. Think I'll have to make them again very, very soon. I cut back on the sugars by using only 1 packed cup of brown sugar w/o the white sugar. And the sweetness was just nice. Also replaced the chocolate chips with chunks of Cadbury Dairy bar. Baked them right away w/o having to cool the dough. No problem there. Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Will never use another recipe. TQ so much for sharing the recipe.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2005
Discription for this recipe is a absolutely true. Made some improvement as I was worried the original recipe will not turn out moist. 1 3/4c flour, 3/4c sugar, 1/3c milk and 1/3c vegetable oil instead of melted butter. It was moist and soft even the next day. One tip for the topping; put all topping ingredients (butter straight from the refrigerator) in a chopper, saves a lot of time. I had no problem with the topping although this is the first time doing it. I made 14 muffins so that the topping won't fall out. Baked nicely at 15 minutes and added 2 more minutes only on top burner for the topping to browned. Bottom slightly burnt at original recommended time or is it because I live in a tripical country.

Black Bottom Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2005
Just finished baking them. And as soon at the first batch cooled down, 6 were devoured by the kids. The cakes were a little bit on the smaller side to be able to get 2 dozen. Next time I'll make them bigger and put in more cheese. Also used milk instead of water and 1/3 cup of cocoa at 20 min.
