Best Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2014
Actually I really like this recipe but for a truely wonderful devils food cake & not for brownies. This recipe comes out very moist, super chocolatey & very cake like especially if you use a good quality,dark cocoa powder & don't over bake it. It comes together very easily & doesn't require boiled water or any other crazy steps or ingredients like many other chocolate cake recipes. I quadruple this recipe to make a three(9inch) layer cake. Turns out great every time.

Cream Cheese Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2013
My go to recipe is a sour cream pound cake I've made for years. It always comes out wonderfully dense & moist. However I always wanted to see if a cream cheese pound cake would be any better. Well, I won't say it's better but it's most definitely just as good. Very, dense velvety consistancy w/ that crunchy outside that I love. I did add 1/4tsp. baking powder & 1/4cup of milk and it was delicious. It took a bit longer to bake than my sour cream recipe but that may be due to the milk I added. F.Y.I If you don't have cake flour use 3/4 cup all purpose flour + 2tbls a.p. flour + 2tbls.cornstarch for each cup of flour the recipe calls for. Your results will be just as good with this substitute.

Cream Cheese Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
I forgot to mention my addtions to this recipe. I used cake flour which always gives the best texture results. I also added 1 Tbls. of lemon extract w/ an equal amount of vanilla. Since this recipe contained no levening or liquid I added 1/4 tsp baking soda & 1/4 cup whole milk. The results... PERFECTION!!!!

Moist Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
After trying a number of "yellow cake" recipes I think the best standard plain cake is pound cake. It works well with or without frosting & if you have a great recipe, it won't be dry & it will never taste like cornbread.

Southern Potato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
Thanks for posting a really good potato salad recipe thas not all messed up with a bunch of wierd stuff like olives, ranch dressing, dill weed or 55 eggs ect. I would recommend reduceing the mustard significantly, adding a little chopped green pepper, a splash of vinegar & a sprinkle of sugar.

Pecan Sour Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
When baking, especially a cake of this size, it's vital to know one's oven very well. Some ovens run hot so although it may be set on the correct temp. your cake may bake far too fast on the outside & still be wet inside. Invest in an oven thermometer. That way you will know if your oven runs hot or not so you can adjust the temp. setting accordingly. Often it's not the recipe but rather the oven it's bake in.

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2006
I like this recipe alone or as a base for other frostings flavors. To get rid of that shortening taste I use 1/2 ts. vanilla extr. and 1/2 tsp. lemon extr.
