Lemon Cake with Lemon Filling and Lemon Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
I followed the instructions without any changes. It was a dud. The cake didn't rise, and was eggy smelling, sweet and heavy. The curd is ok, much like the usual lemon curd but a bit too tart for my taste. The icing was too sweet. I was looking forward to have a nice fluffy lemon filled cake as the closure to a great meal, but this was really disappointing. Next time I want lemon cake, I think I'll find another cake base that actually comes out fluffy, make a less tart curd, and use an icing recipe from elsewhere.

Banana Cake V

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
Ugh. my banana cake came out looking good, but smelled really strange upon closer inspection. Seems to taste alright, but I've no idea why but it smells terrible despite the fact it's a simple recipe: flour, eggs, banana, rising agent.

Basic Sourdough Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
This recipe is ok. I have made it three times now and each time the bread is consistently high-rising and soft. However, I suggest that when using this recipe to stick around for the beginning of the first mixing cycle so you can add more water as needed. I've found that I have added at least double the amount of water stated on the recipe in order for my bread to mix properly. It should end up just slightly sticky and soft. I make it in a 3lb machine, and the second time pushed against the lid. The bread is fairly decent in the end. It is a simple recipe for a fast bread in the breadmachine.
