Churros

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
Really, really good. A couple of minor changes: I added a tablespoon or two more of water and I mixed the hot liquids with the flour until just barely combined enough to make a sticky ball (in fact there were tiny flour clumps still there but they disappeared when I was piping). I think over-mixing would make it more of a chewy texture and so mine were how I prefer them, crispy on the outside and very soft on the inside. I also added some vanilla and a tiny pinch of nutmeg into the dough just to give it some more flavor. Lastly, it took me a while to get the oil just right. I found that 375 was too hot and it was browning too fast without cooking thoroughly on the inside so i reduced it to 330-350 approx (med heat) and they were perfect. Piping them on the thinner side also helped cook them evenly. Everyone loved them and I will definitely make them again soon.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
This cake was definitely a letdown. I followed the recipe and user comments EXACTLY, adding more milk, and making sure i creamed the butter and sugar and then the eggs until they were light and fluffy. I was a little hesitant pouring the batter in, considering it was quite heavy. The result was pretty much a thick sugar cookie cake with absolutely no flavor. Yuck. I tried to salvage the cake by making it into a trifle with some pudding and cool whip and fruits but it didnt fool anyone. I wont be making this again.
