Triple the Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Careful about the distance on the cookie sheet and careful about baking time and temperature! Do you use an oven thermometer? I find it indispensable and I just don't know how some people manage without one! These cookies are rich and tasty, even too sugary for my taste, so I made them smaller. I used hot air to bake them for 10 minutes at 165C. Initially, I tried to bake at the suggested 175C and as I was keeping an eye on them I saw that at around 7 minutes they had started to burn around the edges...

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
All fine, except pay some attention to the final mixing, don't over-mix! Fold everything softly just enough to moisten the flour. Adapt baking time depending on how "watery" the quantity of mashed bananas you have added is; in my case, I should have lowered the temperature on the half hour and continue for about a quarter more at 140C. I made a slight change for a somewhat lighter bread: I separated the eggs, mixed the yellows with the butter and sugar batter and beat the whites before folding them into the final batter like I do for chiffon cakes. The result is an agreeable sweet bread, not fluffy but neither too dense.
