Grandmother's Pound Cake II

Reviewed: May 12, 2012
Excellent! I think the key to getting a cake with great texture is to make sure that ALL of your ingredients are at room temp before you start. Pre-measure your milk, take your eggs and butter out (it helps to cut your butter up into small cubes before you use your mixer), but yes, take everything out at least 30 mins before you start. Also, be sure to beat at a medium-high speed, rather than a low speed. The batter should be super smooth (no lumps) when you're all done. And it's a bit thicker than regular cake batter too- sorta like frosting at room temp, or maybe just a hair softer. I thought that I had over mixed mine, it was incredibly light and fluffy, but it came out PERFECT and I mixed for a long time in between eggs and milk/flour. I don't think I'll have to worry about over mixing next time. The only modification I made to the recipe was that I added 2tsp of PURE vanilla extract and 2 tsp of almond extract. I could have gotten away with just one of each, or even none at all, it's a tad sweet, but still yummy as ever. Great recipe! It took awhile to find a classic pound cake recipe- I am very pleased:)

Zucchini Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
These are ok- You can really taste the cloves in them (I made them as the recipe states)... I suppose if you like cloves a lot, these would be awesome for you! Otherwise, they're pretty good and I'm sure my family will love them. I'll probably make them again, but maybe next time I'll just use pumpkin pie spice in place of both the cinnamon and cloves.

Super Duper Zucchini Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2010
Great recipe! After reading the reviews, I too made some adjustments. 1 cup white flour, 1 cup wheat flour, 1/4 milled flax, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar... also, I don't use shortening, so I cut in 1 stick of butter. I may try applesauce next time. I also used 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice in place of the cinnamon and nutmeg- and I didn't have any walnuts, so I decided to try chopped dates instead, and they REALLY are great in this recipe. I'll be using this one often:)

Apple Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
Great bread!! And VERY easy! After reading the reviews, I used 1 1/4 cup of applesauce instead of oil and used 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of white sugar. Also, I used 1 cup of wheat flour and 2 cups of white flour, just to get some whole wheat nutrition. And, instead of 2 tsp of cinnamon, I used 1 tsp plus 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice- it added a nice flavor! I think next time I make this bread I'll add a streusal topping and see what happens!
