Costas French Market Doughnuts (Beignets)

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
I have to say that I've never had a beignet prior to this evening, although I've made lots of standard doughnuts before. I found the texture to be really, really lovely but the flavour was seriously lacking. I would highly recommend using butter instead of shortening and also adding perhaps a little vanilla. Will perhaps make again but not without a few adjustments.

Bran Flax Muffins

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
Firstly YUM! Secondly, WOW! And Thirdly: Thank you! First time made to the letter. Hubby wasn't keen on nuts so second time made without nuts and went down really well. I've tried substituting oil for apple sauce and sugar for a half measure of sugar substitute and works just as well making them fat and sugar free to boot (other than the natural sugars of the fruit that is). I make these regularly now but also add 2tsp of mixed spice to make them even spicier and also sometimes do them with two bananas instead of apples. They really are bootiful! AND guilt free!!! :D

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Nut Muffins

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
I can't believe how many people have rated this and then pointed out that they haven't even used the bleedin' recipe! I've followed this recipe to the letter twice now and absolutely LOVE it! I've also done it loads without the nuts and have used chocolate chunks instead of chips a few times. It's very versatile and so long as you don't over cook (did this once and the muffins didn't burn but they were rather dry), they are beautifully moist. Thanks so much for this recipe! This is the first time I've succeeded in making chocolate muffins as other recipes have resulted in chocolate scented bricks!
