Chocolate Ganache

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
I made this ganache to cover an 8 inch round cake. It was a little too much for the size but I can still use the leftover for icecream or toast or anything. It tasted very good! I used 70% dark chocolate from a good chocolate shop in town. If you chill up your cake in the fridge at least 3 or 4 hours before you pour the ganache on it then put your cake in the fridge again, the ganache firms up very nicely, not too hard but not runny at all :)

Mary Anne's Moist and Nutty Carrot Loaf

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
This is super moist and tasty! First off, I was wondering if I should use crushed pineapple with juice because someone suggested it should be drained(actually I used pineapple tidbits this time because I had it on hand. It turned out very good! You can actually see those bits and really taste pineapple). Then I checked my favourite carrot cake recipe (it's on Allrecipes, called "Sam's Famous Carrot Cake"). The recipe calls for "with juice" and also buttermilk as more liquid. So I decided to use the juice too for this loaf. I took many reviewers advice and baked @ 350F for 70 minutes. Wow! It was perfectly done! Usually if the batter has a lot of liquid, it takes me so long until the inside is done but the outside is burnt. But this time it was no problem at all! I also tried another suggestion and used half white sugar/half brown sugar. And I used half all-purpose flour/half whole wheat flour and added 1/4 cup ground flaxseed which I usually do for quick bread. Super!!

Blueberry Cornmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
These muffins are very tasty! When I saw the ingredients, I thought it had way too much baking powder. But I followed the recipe because nobody seemed to be complaining about it when I looked through the reviews. Then I actually didn't taste of baking powder at all! It just made the muffins very fluffy (fluffier than muffins I usually make though). I used 3/4 cup all-purpose flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour instead of 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour. I also added 1/4 cup ground flaxseed to make them a little bit healthier. It was good that I took some reviwers advice; dredge the blueberries separately first, then fold them at the end, after you mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients. My muffins turned to be beautiful (can you see my posted pics?) :)

Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
This is a very moist coffee cake which I love! I made this as a "Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake" using half unsalted butter and half peanut butter, half semi-sweet chocolate chips and half peanut butter chips. It was so peanutty ;) For the topping (I doubled the amount, then sprinkled in the middle too), I used brown sugar instead of white sugar. I made three different types of pans at the same time. I baked @350F for 55 mins with a 7" springform pan, for 30 mins with 6 standard muffin cups and for 25 mins with 8 mini muffin cups out of this recipe. I will definitely make this again :)

Poppy Seed Mini Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2008
I made 12 standard-size muffins out of this recipe; baked @400F for 20 mins. I filled each muffin cup full and it rose nicely. I used 1 cup of all-purpose flour and 1 cup of whole wheat flour, and added 1/4 cup of ground flaxseed, which I usually do (half all-purpose/half whole wheat, plus flax) when I make muffins or quick bread. It tasted very good and was perfect for breakfast ;) Lemon flavour was not powerful enough for me so I will try 1 tsp of lemon extract (or real zest) next time.

S'more Jumbo Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
I added 5 tbsp of cocoa powder in dry ingredients, and used 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour and 3/4 cup of whole wheat flour. I only had big marshmallows so I cut into 4 pieces but they were still big! They melted all over and actually it was so hard to take muffins out from the pan because it was too sticky and too messy! I don't know if I will make them again but it tasted not too bad. I could make 12 standard muffins out of this recipe.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2008
I made this frosting to decorate my bunny carrot cake. I made a bunny cake (I learned how to assemble a bunny cake in this site) using one 9" round cake and I had lots of frosting left. But it was perfect to add cream on each slice ;) I coated my bunny with coconut flakes on the frosting and it was very cute and tasty!

I made 12 standard muffins (bake @ 400F for 22 mins) and 9 mini muffins (bake @ 400F for 20 mins) out of this recipe. I added 1/4 cup ground flaxseed to dry ingredients, and used 1 cup all-purpose flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour instead of 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour. Perfect!!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2008
It was as great as I expected or much more!! I was planning to bake this cake and I just found "How to Decorate an Easter Cake (Video)" on this site before I make it! So I tried to make a Bunny Cake as you can see my posted picture :) I baked with a 10" round pan out of this recipe, and the batter was a perfect amount. I don't know if it helps but my oven took 85 mins for the cake to be done... Actually I baked this cake at my friend's house and she said her oven was a little bit weak. When I assembled the bunny, I didn't cut the top off the round cake so my bunny got so fat! But it was super cute :P I frosted the bunny with "Cream Cheese Frosting II by Janni" as many reviewers reccomended, and made bunny fur with flaked coconut. In the video, they toasted coconut flakes but I wanted to make my bunny white so I didn't toasted. Decorating was so fun and of course the cake was a huge hit!!
