Penny's Whiskey Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
After reading reviews, I started watching for cake to be done after 30 min. Mine was done at 45 min. Like Penny said, very easy to remove from the pan but I sprayed liberally with Bakers Secret. Also cut the sauce whiskey down to 1/4 cup because it was going to work. The whiskey in the cake stayed at 1/2 cup. I did not add the whiskey at the end but simmered it 15-20 minutes with the butter/water/sugar to cook off some of the alcohol which worked perfectly as it left just a faint Jack Daniels taste and smell. Next time i will use the whole 1/2 cup in the sauce as cooking it on top the stove is very effective in eliminating the alcohol "bite". I inverted the cake on a plate but changed my mind and instead of poking holes and pouring sauce over, I put the cake back in the pan and poured the syrup around the outer edge so the cake could just sit and soak in the sauce for 10 minutes. Then inverted it back on the plate. Perfect for work if you cook the sauce!!

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
While these were good, I agree with some in that you can taste the corn starch. I could not get them to work in my cookie press either but that fact didn't count against the recipe as it isn't a cookie press recipe. I added a teaspoon of vanilla.

Apple Butter Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
I really wanted to like this recipe and after reading all the reviews, I felt ready to tackle it but it fell short of fabulous. I took the suggestion of 1 reviewer and marinated the tenderloins in apple juice 24 hours, baked 15 min, drained juices into a pan, topped with the apple butter mixture and continued to bake. My meat thermometer malfunctioned and I could have overcooked it a bit but I, like other reviewers, found the meat to be dry and tasteless even with overnight marinating. I'm not sure what will fix this. I know I can make it less dry by decreasing the baking time but even though I stabbed it repeatedly with a fork prior to marinating, the taste did not permiate the meat. It wasn't bad, I just had higher hopes. I did make a gravey with the reserved juices and served with a side of sauteed apples.
