Gooey Butter Cake I
This was just not that great. I would have given it 2 stars except that the kids liked it so I gave it 3. As other reviewers have said, the cake layer is VERY dry. If it was a thinner layer and more like a bar this would have been ok, but that much "dry" in one layer made these barely edible for me. Cream cheese layer also lacked something to enhance the flavor - just a bit of lemon zest would have helped. Followed recipe exactly, except it was done in 30 minutes. I will not make these again....just needs too much tweaking.

Creme Anglaise I
I actually found this creme anglaise to be a bit too sweet and too "eggy" for my taste. (yes, I do realize that creme anglaise is a custard, which = eggs!!) I am a very seasoned cook and have made creme anglaise numerous times. I know I didn't do anything wrong - it's just the recipe. I have liked other recipes better. Definitely edible, though - how can you really go wrong with cream, eggs and sugar? :) As for the vanilla, you should never add this at the boiling stage. Always add it at the end. The only other modification I made was to add some dark rum at the end to cut some of the sweet/egg richness. Overall, this was an average creme anglaise, and thus my rating.
