Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: May 23, 2013
Changes, for the 1/3 oil, I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 olive oil. The rest I followed with some extra cinnamon in the batter. Baked in 6 large muffins and 12 mini muffins, the mini muffins were too dry after 18min but the large muffins were perfect moist after 20min. The brown sugar on the crust was a little bit burned. This is the most moist banana muffin EVER! loved it! only on con: it's got this metal after taste, maybe it's the baking powder, but I already use a AL free ones... weird

bleh, nothing special, not even good :( the topping was like kfc's biscuit/scone, but gooier, the crumbling part was a thin thin layer crust. would NOT be making this ever again.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
Very good, BUT different from what everyone else's result. I got a crunchy cookie :) probably because I baked for nearly 15min as it just did not brown! The taste was awesome, would def. bake these again and again. Changes made: brown instead of white sugar, butter instead of margarine, white wine instead of water, no molasses as I didn't have any, added some peanuts, used allspice instead of cinnamon.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
not bad, I followed the recipe w/out changes but tuned out cake-like and crumbly. Will: decrease sugar to 1 cup, decrease baking soda to 1tsp, decrease oil to 1/4 cup and decrease baking time to 20min.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
Superb! had no brown sugar so used all white, still came out delicious (crispy). Used all butter. Chewy+sticky and not soft, LOVE IT. I hate raisins so used walnuts and peanuts, tastes wonderful! THE BEST Recipe ever. Note: these do not flatten by themselves

Peanut Butter and Bran Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
Very good and was able to make a healthier change: 3/4 cup of applesauce instead of the 1 cup of butter! I used Quaker traditional oats, also increased to 1 cup. Used 1 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp baking powder as I don't like the metal taste in the bs. Added 3/4 cup of chopped walnut, which gave it a great crunch. I am taking a star out only because it was a bit cakie/fluffy-chewy and not crunchy and crispy. I recommend scooping it with a tbs and do not flatten it as it does spread a little while baking.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
Love this recipe! I cut down on baking soda to 1/3 tsp and used buttermilk or sometimes milk kefir instead of the milk+vinegar. Also added 1/2 tsp of vanilla powder. Omitted the butter and used olive oil instead. sometimes cut down the sugar to 1tbs when I eat it with sausage gravy (the top rated one on this site is stupendous). One important NOTE: This is not enough for 8servings (maybe it's the size that I've made (15cm diameter)) it only yielded 3 pancakes LOL just enough for the 3 of us.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
As recommended by everyone, I only used 1/4 cup honey, 1/4 cup oil and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Added 1 cup Applesauce to make up for the liquid and sweetness. Baked for 30min at 175C but it was still gooey at the bottom (top was crisp). I baked for an extra 20min and it was much better :) The bottom was till a bit moist after cooling. I am taking a star out as it was not crunchy nor chewy but dry on top and moist on the bottom (in my opinion).

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
Very good! A keeper! I didnt' use any corn syrup and it was still a bit too sweet, will cut down on the honey next time. I used cheddar instead of Monterrey jack. Didn't have onion flakes so made it without. Wasn't sure what's seasoning salt so used a combo of chimichurri (pepper + garlic + olive oil + cilantro + parsley + red pepper flakes + paprika) + salt, it was DELICIOUS! Since no one in my family likes chicken breasts I used 6 drumsticks and baked for 30min on 380F. Didn't like the bacon fat so I used ham slices instead :) I also left out the mushrooms since I needed it for the spaghetti. This is a very good recipe that you can make lots of alternations!

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
Great recipe, very moist and flufy eating HOT outta oven :) I cut down the butter to 1/2 cup, sugar to 1 1/2 cup brown, and increased banana to 1 3/4 cup. Didn't add in any lemon juice. The cake' sweetness and texture was right on! Didn't even bother with the topping. Only one minor thing, the baking soda was a bit overwhelming, will try cutting down to 1 tsp next time. **The flour and baking soda must be mixed well, even the smallest lump will remain in the final cake :( ** Baked it at 140C for 1.5hours (at 1 hour it was still runny in the middle). Edit: After cooling it (just left it outside for 5 hours, it's winter) it became really dense and not crumbly at all :( Very Bread-like. Will try some other recipes.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
Suuuuuuuperb!!!!! I love love it! Perfectly MOIST and crumb, a bit oily thought with the 3/4c oil and 1/2 cup homemade orange+berry sauce (just want I had, next time will try with some applesauce). Will also cut the sugar to 1/2C white and 1C brown, cus 2 cup came out too sweet for our taste. Not sure if it is a good thing or not but can't taste the carrot at all :) (I hate carrots). Otherwise, followed the recipe without top frosting (just too lazy). 18th of June: I made another batch yesturday with 2 cups of white sugar only and it turned out not as good as the 1 cup white and 1 cup brown I made last time. The sweetness was... plain, while with the brown sugar, it as more caramel like. Oh, I had no baking soda and used only 2 tsp bp and 1tsp instant yeast, it turned out ok! not as fluffy but ok :)

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
This recipe is exceptional!!! The crumb:the softness is perfect! I used 3/4 cup "light" sour cream, cut the sugar to a bit less than 3/4 cups (still pretty sweet), only 3/4 cup of butter, 1/4 cup of orange juice (actually I used homemade orange liquor) and 2 Tbsp of homemade mascarpone as I wanted to use it up! Made 2 rounds then divided each into 12 pcs, will try making a large rectangle then devide into triangles. Made 1/2 with walnuts and 1/2 plain, both were awesome!

Cream Corn Like No Other

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
Good but too sweet with the type of corn that we have here, therefore, I make mine without the added sugar. I also like to cook the flour first with 1 Tbs of olive oil (substituting for the butter). Use 1/2 cup skim milk instead of a cup of whole milk and 2/3 cup of cream instead of 1 cup.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
Love these!!! After reading all the negative reviews, I was kindda skeptical, BUT! It turned out PERFECT with: 1-) Triple recipe 2-) Use only 1 cup of brown sugar 3-) Increase to 4 Large apples cooked first with 1/2 lemon and 1/2 cup water for 10 min on boil so that the water evaporates a bit. 5-) Sprinkle with 2 Tbs sugar + 2 tsp ground cinnamon. LAST bake in 9x13 glass dish at 175C for 45min. MOIST but holding together :) I also tried it with 2 cup of AP flour + 1 cup of whole wheat flour and the consistency is even more brownie like PLUS more healthy! :)

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
Superb!!! Love this! I didn't use water but used a whole cup of warm milk to proof the yeast as I made it the old fashion way. Made 16 wonderful rolls with cream fillings. The only problem I had was with the baking temp/time. I had to bake at 190C for 25min for a soft and fluffy bread with beautiful golden crust.

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
Love it!! super moist and fluffy, maybe a bit crumbly but I don't care cus I eat it as is and no need for decoration :) Will keep this def. for future bakings. I only used 1 3/4 cup of sugar cus I dont like it too sweet and turned out perfect! The only problem I had was the baking time, I baked one in 8x8 glass and one in 8" bundt pan, both took 45min to bake fully. The texture was very different from the "Extreme Chocolate Cake" from this site, this is alot more softer and fluffier.

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
Great CAKE! This is by no means a flufy sponge cake but a dense and moist chocolate cake. I baked minicupcakes at 175C for 15min (filled up to 2/3 and yield a perfect little round top). Original is bit too sweet but lowering to 1 1/2cup of sugar was perfect. I would also lessen salt to 1/2 tsp. Oh I also baked a round cake in glass pyrex bowl which took 50min at 180C, had a crunchy-candylike top and moist cake inside. I did not try the frosting.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
Followed the recipe except I used AP flour as I didn't have any bread flour and used butter instead of margarine. The bun as sweet enough without the cream cheese topping. I made it with KAid, even though it first looked too dry, it still doubled beautifully and non sticky at all to the surface. The only problem I got was that the brown sugar did not melt after baking, they remained grain-like so next time I will def. beat them along with butter till creamy first. Took out another star cus I honestly think it was too dense. Soft and sticky yes, but TOO heavy and DENSE (moist?). Oh, and I baked for 25min 185C, was fully cooked and wet.
