Zebra Cake III

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
For those who have trouble finding the wafers, they are called Famous Chocolate Wafers. A quick Google search turned up online ordering sources and a ubiquitous BigBox store beginning with W. They are made by the Kraft food company. King Arthur Flour has a recipe for homemade wafers.

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
We've made this several times this year, and many times last winter. It's the best "pumpkin" bread I've ever made. We usually cut the sugar and oil a bit, and I usually use some white whole wheat flour to boost the fiber and nutrition. It's incredible with a cup of tea laced with ginger syrup.

Great Grandad's Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
I followed the recipe and had no problems, and the cookies baked up soft, high, and tender. I treated the dough more like pie crust and floured my board well; I turned the dough and dusted more flour until I could roll without sticking. Even the re-rolled scraps were tender. I used a tablespoon of vanilla because we love vanilla, and we frosted them with a simple butter-cream frosting tinted green for St. Patrick's Day. If you're looking for crisp cookies with a sparkle of sugar on top, this is not it. If you want a soft, cake-like cookie, here you are. The vanilla and nutmeg compliment it well. Nice recipe.

Applesauce Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2013
I've made this recipe twice; we think it's terrific. The first time, I added 1/2 t powdered ginger because I was in the mood for something really spicy. I also added 1/2 t cinnamon to the frosting. We couldn't leave them alone. I used white whole wheat flour and they were still moist and tender. Yesterday, I made the recipe again and doubled the recipe. It baked in 30 minutes, in a 9/13 pan, and was just as good as the first time. One thing I would say is to watch them carefully; our oven is new and may bake hotter, but the bars were done before the time specified in the recipe.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2014
What's with the random warning against canola oil, without details, and what's with all the "helpful" votes? How is that helpful? This recipe works fine as written, except I, too, used an extra 1/2 tsp salt.
