Country Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
I was out of ingredients I usually make my pound cake with and searched AR for a different recipe. I chose this one but was disappointed. I followed it to the letter except it tested done at 70 minutes instead of 80. After cooling for an hour, I removed from the parchment lined tube pan. It basically fell apart. My family did not not like the taste and texture as well as other recipes. I sliced and crumbled it up and am now toasting it. My husband will eat anything that is toasted. I was disappointed in the results and will not try this again. I see this recipe a lot in cookbooks and thought that it would be a good one. It was not our taste preference but the texture was the most disappointing of all. I needed it for a charity donation so now I have to make another one. Will make a trip to store and make my recipe. Sorry to all of you who love it but taste is an individual preference.

Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
I made this cake for a family get together. First time I try a recipe, I follow instructions then the next time I will tweak if necessary. It was a very easy and quick recipe to put together. I liked the taste and texture but my husband did not. He prefers a dryer cake and I like the moist cakes. This is a very moist cake. I did do a double recipe of the glaze and used about 1 and 1/2 recipes to glaze the cake. I would do the cake again when I need a cake in a hurry since it is so easy. I would recommend it but would not say it was my favorite cake.

Tropical Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
I made this cake and carried to breakfast gathering and got lots of compliments. It was not a personal favorite but having made three recipes to serve, and hearing many positive comments, I would say it was a hit. I followed the directions and had no problems. Very easy recipe to make. It is a good basic recipe that can be adjusted to individual tastes.

Funfetti Cake Batter Fudge

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
I was looking for a quick recipe to do for a ladies tea and thought this might be it. I was disappointed in the results. I did follow the recipe as written. I tasted of it and decided I did not want to use it for the tea. and left on counter for the family. I did not think this tasted like cake. The family and friends who tasted of did not like nor could they figure out what it tasted like. Sorry to be so negative, but this is not a recipe I will try again.

Cinco de Chili Chocolate Cupcakes with Chili Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
Fantastic!!Made these according to the recipe as written mainly out of curiosity! WoW!!! They were a big hit at a party I had tonight. I made them as minature cupcakes and served them as a "Guess the ingredient " dish. Only one person out of 22 came up with the Ancho chili and cayenne pepper. Highly recommend this recipe.

White Almond Wedding Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
I made this recipe as written the first time and was very pleased. I baked 12 dozen cupcakes and had many compliments. The next time I used it, I added whole eggs and was still very pleased with the results. Now, I adjust the flavorings depending on the type of frosting I am using. I highly recommend this recipe. FYI...I get 36 cupcakes from one recipe.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
I had heard about these cookies and wanted to try the recipe. Going by other comments,, I added lemon zest and a heaping tablespoon of lemondade powder. They were a big hit. Part of my family likes soft and the half likes crunchy cookies.. ..I baked half longer and had the best of both worlds. I definitely would try again. I could not detect a cake mix taste.

Easy Cream Cheese Danish

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
Easy and very good. Have made cream cheese pastry from scratch for years and given as gifts and was told by one of my yearly recipients this recipe is better than my recipe. Will definitely use when I need something quick and easy and fail proof.
