Rhubarb Stir Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
This was pretty yummy, although I think I'll keep looking for a better rhubarb cake / bread recipe. A bit too sweet for my liking (even though I reduced the sugar to 2/3 of the original !) Great texture; I used slightly less rhubarb (it was all that I had), and baked muffins instead of a cake, which worked really well!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!! I have a fan oven, and baked the brownies at about 145 / 150 degrees C for 35 minutes, putting foil on top towards the end to stop them browning too much on top. I then switched the oven off and let them finish cooking in the warm oven for an hour - they turned out *perfectly* fudgy. Definitely a recipe I will use again and again and again!

Apple-Cran-Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
These were nice! I used very low-fat sunflower spread in place of the butter, missed out the cranberries (I had none) and added in chopped walnuts to give it a bit more crunch! Mine took about 15 minutes to do. I'd never baked with applesauce before, so I found it a bit hard to tell when they were done. I waited until they'd gone nice and golden on top, but not too dark. I left them to cool on wire racks, although they were lovely warm! Enjoy!

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
WONDERFUL!! Absolutely delicious - so gooey and sticky and .. mmmmm! I am usually hopeless with yeast cooking but these worked out brilliantly. I put mine on a 25 x 35 cm pan at 150 / 160 degrees C (fan oven) and in about 11 minutes they were lovely and golden. I made a glaze with milk, icing sugar and vanilla, although they were already sweet enough for most people's tastes! Try this recipe!!

Cinnamon Rolls I

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
This recipe did not turn out well at all for me - the dough was far too moist to begin with and they didn't rise at all. The sugar / cinnamon melted with the butter in the oven, making the rolls spring apart and well.. I just ended up with a huge sticky (but reasonably tasty!) mess! Will try a different recipe next time, but make sure to roll the dough out very thin so that I can roll the dough up a good couple of times. Also, 20 minutes was much too long for me - mine were slightly overcooked even at 15 minutes.

Oatmeal Craisin Cookies

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
Yum yum! These were perfect! Exactly what I was looking for - a yummy, fruit-filled, not too sweet oatmeal cookie! I didn't have any plain (all-purpose) flour to hand, so I used wholewheat flour instead, which worked just fine! Take them out when they are still quite gooey and leave to cool completely on the baking trays - they will be gorgeously soft!

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
These are fairly average scones - possibly go for a buttermilk recipe if you're after a light & fluffy scone.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake II

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
This is great! I reduced the topping as others had said, and used round segments of pineapple out of a tin. This was gooey, moist .. and gone within 5 minutes! One for keeps!

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
WATCH THESE COOKIES!! They taste great... IF you manage to get them out while they are still a bit raw in the middle, and then leave them to cool on the baking trays for a few minutes.. If you leave them cook even a minute or two longer than they need, you'll have hard, brittle cookies.. not the soft gooey scrummy things you want!

Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
These are fantastic! The topping is very sweet and crumbly (I think I might halve it next time as the muffins themselves are already very sweet). One for keeps! Yum Yum!

Baklava

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
This crisps very easily, so watch out! You want it nice and gooey! Also (although, much to my annoyance, I only read this after I made the baklava!), it's a great idea to cut the pastry into correct-sized pieces before starting - you can work a lot faster and get it in the oven in half the time!

Caramel Bars

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
I was a bit disappointed by this recipe, as they turned out much much too sweet for my tastes (and I have one extreme sweet tooth!).. However, this may be down to the fact that I couldn't find any plain caramels in supermarkets here in the UK, so used chocolate-covered caramels instead. But nonetheless I'd recommend it and maybe even make it again someday.

Anzac Biscuits I

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
These turned out pretty nice in the end, although the dough was extremely crumbly. A bit too sweet for my taste though, so to take the edge off the sweetness I made half the batch with dried fruit or nuts - some cranberries, some sultanas, peacans and some chopped crystallised ginger - delicious!

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
Great recipe - one for keeps! I didn't change much; as suggested by other reviewers I used only 2/3 of the sugar and added a bit more flour to compensate. Instead of just nuts I used about 70 - 80g of a mix of different chopped nuts, sultanas, raisins and cranberries - delicious!!

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
Nice recipe, but would definitely reduce the temperature and the baking time next time. Also use a smaller baking tin to make the bars deeper. But delicious anyways - will use again! Thanks!
