Orange Dream Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
I gave this 4 stars because I haven't tasted it yet, they just came out of the oven. I baked the two pans on separate levels, so the one on the bottom was done 20 minutes into baking, but I wasn't able to take it out sooner, and I got a dark brown crust on the sides(which I tried to avoid, it's always the mistake I have when baking cakes in floured pans). The other one came out looking good. I modified the frosting; I whipped up 1 1/3 c of all purpose cream, used 1/8 tsp lemon extract + 1 tsp water to substitute for the lemon juice. It came out nice and light, and I'm looking forward to frosting my cake later. For the cake, I didn't have any lemons at hand, so I just used more orange zest and mixed a bit of lemon extract with water for the lemon juice. Thanks for the recipe!

Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
I yielded 23 "mini" muffins because I was afraid of overflows on the pan. turns out it didn't rise well, and I ended up with small cakes that looked like scones. i doubled the apples and cinnamon, and added the cinnamon-brown sugar topping as someone suggested. it turned out great. I realized the size I made was suitable for an afternoon coffee break. :)

Egg Tarts II

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
Did this a month ago out of curiosity. Used muffin pans instead, and yielded 20 tarts. I was too lazy to roll out the dough, so I did as one reviewer suggested and rolled them into balls then pressed them into the pans. The end result was wonderful, but was very bland. I have no idea why, the sugar probably didn't melt. The texture was wonderful, and the custard was so pretty. I gave my professor some and he loved it. My boyfriend did, too. I will try this again, and hopefully the next time will yield me sweeter tarts. :) thanks so much for the recipe!
