Chocolate Syrup

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2011
Technology has made me lazy, so I didn't cook this on the stove. I whisked all the ingredients together in a 4-cup Pyrex bowl, microwaved it for about 3 minutes, whisked again, microwaved for another two minutes, and took it out and whisked again. The end product was thin just as everybody else said. But when I poured it into bottles, the leftover liquid in the Pyrex bowl cooled off and thickened up just fine. The only drawback to this recipe was that it made me feel like an idiot for buying Hershey's for $3...and Torani for$6.

Glorious Sponge Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
I scaled the recipe down to half and made a test cake, and it came out great. I made sure to use cake flour, as opposed to all-purpose flour. Learned that lesson the hard way before. I also used vanilla extract instead of lemon since I didn't want a fruit taste. While the egg whites fluffed in the blender, I mixed the yolks, sugar, water, vanilla, and flour in a food processor to speed up the process. Baking for 45 minutes was plenty time for my test cake. In fact, I may have over-baked a little. The cake came out very spongy and springy, just as I liked. Other reviewers complained of an eggy taste, but I didn't get that from mine.
