Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
I'm just rating the sponge here as I made a different frosting I already love. I always get a little bit worried when I make a new cake but with this I needen't have worried! I even cooked it all in one pan and it worked wonderfully. A delicious and moist cake. I made it for a special event and EVERYONE was raving about it.. one kid told me 'THIS is the cake you can make me on my next birthday!' haa!

Danish Rice Pudding with Almonds

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
My husband is Danish, we have this every Christmas and eat it leading up to Christmas with just slight alterations. We make a large pot of rice plain without almonds, vanilla and cream the day before and eat it for supper with a little butter and sugar cinnamon sprinkled on, the next day we add the cream and almonds and true Danish style top with Cherry sauce. Nom Nom Nom. Niels makes it for my family in Scotland and they LOVE it! Mustn't forget a marzipan pig for the prize when the whole almond has been found!

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
I have made this twice now. First time I made this was for my daughters birthday picnic in the summer, it was a massive hit, I doubled the entire recipe and I didn't even get a bit! It was gone- ALL gone! I did however pinch a bite from hubbys plate and was kinda surprised to find the base was soggy!! I thought it was because of the heat but I have just made it again and cooled it for hours and still soggy.. really? Is this a soggy biscuit base cheesecake? uh.. my winning cheesecake just can't have a soggy biscuit base.. I'm going to adapt my own cheesecake recipe with the best bits of this one and see what happens.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2010
I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out lovely.. note of advice tho- keep an eye on them when they are in the oven.. one minute over and the top can turn burnt caramel!

Delicious Chocolate Cornflake Cakes

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
I had the same trouble when I was looking for crispy cake recipe variations- was surprised this was the only one here. Using cornflakes in isn't my favorite- I used rice crispies instead- I find them easier to eat! Usually people add raisins to these but I went for marshmallows and smarties- you can add m&m's crushed biscuit's.. coconut.. For me decent chocolate is a must but nobody will tell the difference if you use no frills cereal!

Cinnamon Ice Cream

yummers- great consistency and flavour, took ours a bit longer to harden than we'd planned for.. but was worth the wait.

Chocolate Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
Amazing- easy and super yummy, I followed the recipe exactly and had rich and moist cakes that held together well with perfect spongy texture.. we even ate them all without any topping. I found trying to fill the cases 1/4 or 1/3 full of batter gave me cake mountains and filling them halfway made perfect for cupcakes to be decorated. This is going to be my new choc cupcake recipe from now on. Thankyou!

Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
Alot of the good reviews had altered the recipe so I intentended to follow the recipe exactly and see how it was. After mixing in half of the confect sugar I had a taste the mix was super- like Pb.cups, I continued to add sugar untill it was crumbly and difficult to mix (I had added milk too) had a taste and with over half cup sugar still to add it was too sweet! I stopped adding sugar there. The crumbly mixture did hold together fine tho. I made perfect teaspoon size eggs and got a little over 30 eggs. I didn't have shortning + read someone had used butter instead- my chocolate turned to fudge! Fortunately I had extra chocolate handy and used that melted without shortning to cover my lil eggies decorated them with white chocolate and dustings of cocoa powder and confec sugar - I brought them to an easter lunch, everyone was very impressed with the look of them and some said they tasted really good. I look forward to making them again in different shapes and with much less sugar.

Grilled Chicken Thighs Tandoori

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
These are amazing! My hubby thought they were the best thing ever. I keep on the excess marinade- pu them in the oven on a cookie rack and they were juicy and delicious. Had them with cucumber yogurt raita and flavoured, spiced rice.

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
I made this for a birthday, I love it. Intense flavour and great fun to make combining the mixtures. Whip those eggs a good 5 minutes all fluffy and beautiful. My cake turned out moist enough but I highly recommend adding moisture with a topping. I had one problem but don't think it's the fault of the recipe- I took advice to grease pans well, the edges of my cake were crisp and hard! Will try again as a more 'managable' (cutting and serving size) two layer black forrest cake and I'll re-review. I think this cake will be heaven with cherry sauce soaked in.

Chocolate Ganache

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
I'd give it 4.5 to be true- tho I skipped the rum. It was good, easy, spread well and I used it whipped as a filling for the cake. It set quite hard too when I put the remainders of the cake in the fridge after. However a little too waxy/greasy for my liking- I guess thats the cream. I will continue looking for a sticky, sweet choc topping.

Stovies

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
This is a fine stovies recipe! Tastes fab- (more mushy potatoe and less soaked in gravy and meat than the other) I was surprised when I was introduced to stovies like this when I moved into Angus region. I got a bit addicted on ones like this I'd get from the butchers on my lunch break from school. Great with a splash o'gravy or brown sauce. Stop yer whingin and give them a go!

Apple, Carrot, Or Zucchini Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
I made this for a family dessert because it was fast and I had all the ingredients handy, I made it with apples and had it warm with ice-cream.. and later on its own cooled. Was ok but not great. didn't get any compliments with this one that I usually get :( If I make it again It will be carrot version with cream cheese frosting..
