Aunt Anne's Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
I have been looking for this recipe for many years. I used to make this cake back in the early 80s. The recipe got lost in my many moves. I am delighted to find it again, just as easy, just as delicious! TIPS: Use COLD butter. Remember to NOT over-mix. Lumpy batter means tender cake. Also, I like to add 1/4 C chopped nuts to the streusel topping. Simple and perfect every time.

Vegetable and Feta Latkes

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
these were absolutely dee~lish! Be sure to squeeze out as much moisture as you can. In a pinch, breadcrumbs will serve for matzo meal...just sayin'. Thanks for the great recipe!

Snowballs II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
Dont alter anything! These are perfect as they are! We dip the raw dough balls in red and green sugar before baking, or we use a vanilla glace after baking. These are simply delicious! Everyone's favorite!

Best Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2013
I've looked for a super smooth and creamy frosting like this for a long time. Using superfine sugar is a very good tip, or else you have to beat it forever to get the coarser sugar to dissolve. If you use unsalted butter, add a pinch of salt; it needs it. Cook the milk and flour, stirring constantly, until you cannot stir down the boil. That will get rid of a flour taste and adds beautiful texture to the frosting. Have patience and follow directions. This frosting is a dream come true. NOTE: it does not "harden" nor develop an outer, drier layer. It stays very creamy and soft. Just perfection!

Hot Cross Buns I

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2015
These buns were nothing short of magnificent! I tossed finely diced candied fruit and currents in flour, (totaling 3/4 cup) and put it in at the last 5 minutes of kneading in the machine. For spices, I used 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp freshly ground cardamom, and 1/4 tsp clove. I just added it to the flour. These remind me of the HCBs of my youth...Thank you so very much for this recipe. What an excellent product.
