Seven Grain Bread II

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2010
This is a wonderful flavourful and light bread. I did make a few changes: I substituted Molasses for the honey, as well as 12 grain flour for the whole wheat, as well as a 12 grain cereal. I also used 2 TBSP of yeast rather than one. I did find I had to increase the amount of flour slightly, but that could be because I am beside the ocean. I don't have a bread machine so mixed in the tried and true method that I always use when making bread. I bloom the yeast in 1/2 cup warm water with the molasses, then add in a large bowl the water , egg, salt, oil and the yeast mixture, gradually adding the flour until the dough is no longer sticky but still soft. I then place in a lightly oiled bowl, oiling the top of the dough as well, cover with plastic wrap and place in my oven to rise ( I have a proof setting on my oven), until double in size, punch down, form into loaves, allow to rise again, then brush with egg wash and bake. I also add a shallow pan of water to my oven, it keeps the bread moist while baking. I think next time I may add sunflower seeds as well love that. Definetly a keeper!

Raisin Loaf

I substituted half of the milk for molasses - gave it a rich flavour as well as as taking the suggestion to add cinnamon. I will be putting this recipe in my favourites!

Easy Raisin Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
Excellent recipe! I did reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup and used pecans instead of walnuts, just a personal preference, and it was wonderful. I dressed it up for company with a scoop of vanillan ice cream and a warm Brown Sugar Sauce (recipe also from this site) Will put this on my list of favorites! Thanks for sharing!

German Apple Pudding Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
Although the concept of this recipe is very good, I was disappointed with the quality. I did take the advice of previous reviewers and cut the amount of sugar by half in the sauce part ( I used only brown sugar and omitted the white sugar for a more caramel- like flavor) However, 1 egg to 1 cup of flour for the batter portion did not work, there is not enough liquid in the batter portion to absorb the flour, I added another egg, but found that it was still very dry and tough when baked. I was surprised not to see this mentioned by other viewers. This recipe requires some "tweaking" before it can be a "keeper".

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
I made this for dinner last night, and followed the suggestions of other viewers to double the recipe for more sauce. I did with the exception of the oil, this I did not double. I also added 2 lge cloves of minced garlic to the sauce and then marinated the chops in the sauce in the fridge for 4 hours prior to cooking. The sauce is lovely, the meat was tender and tasty. I paired it with the White and Wild Rice Pilaf reciped also from this site. A very good sauce recipe that would be delicious on ribs or chicken as well! A definite "keeper".

Chocolate Macaroon Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
I tried this recipe and loved it, however next time I will double the filling reciipe as well as add another egg white, I found it a bit dry. Also, instead of a chocolate glaze, I used a chocolate ganache - very decadent! I will definetley have this on my list of favourites!
