Surprise Banana Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
This is a great recipe. I used one of the suggestions and used 1 t. of baking powder and the cake flour which made this definately a cake consistency rather than a bready one. I mashed each banana and added it one at a time to the sugar and butter mixture to ensure that I was getting the right amount. My bananas were over ripe and I only needed three medium sized ones. I also substituted half of the granulated sugar with brown sugar simply because I love the flavor of brown sugar. I added a teaspoon of rum extract as I do with just about any banana bread recipe. I omitted the nuts. I made a caramel frosting and poured it on top of the cake and then sprinkled the top with chopped nuts while the frosting was still warm and soft. This was awesome! Just what I was looking for!

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
This is definitely a great chocolate cake. Rich and very chocoaltey and super moist. Plus, I can make it on a whim, since I keep all of the ingredients on hand. I've tried it with chocolate and vanilla buttercream icings. I think this cake is screaming for a mousse filling and ganache covering!

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
I made two of these last week and they disappeared fast! Everyone loved it. I used half coconut milk and half heavy cream. I glazed a good quality frozen store bought pie crust with egg wash and sugar before baking it. It made the crust look great and it kept it's texture without getting soggy. I made sure I had enough heavy cream to make homemade sweetened whipped cream for the topping. I also toasted some coconut for garnish.
