Intensely Chocolate Mousse Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
Delicious - and I thought I'd messed this up completely. While reading the directions I somehow managed to skip over the eggs completely, so didn't add them in until it came to me that I had forgot them - after the cake had been in the oven for about 5 minutes. I thought it was going to be completely ruined - and when I took it out of the pan after baking it was a little soft and not holding together so well. I refrigerated it over night and just had some this morning... it solidified just how it should, and tastes great!!! So if I can screw it up and it's still good, it's got to be fantastic done properly. Also - I did not use a springform pan, just a greased/floured round pan, and had no problems getting it out. (I prefer these to springform pans when using a water bath, as springform pans tend to leak.)

OREO® Triple Layer Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
For such a simple recipe this is surprisingly delicious. I've made it with the mint oreos as well (taking the cream out of half of them since they are doublestuffed) and it is fantastic.

White Chocolate Cheesecake with White Chocolate Brandy Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
I made this for my boyfriend's birthday. I don't like cheesecake but he said it was very good, as did his friends. I doubled the white chocolate as suggested in other reviews, but we found it still only tasted like a hint of white chocolate rather than a definite white chocolate cheesecake. I didn't make the sauce. I tried an oreo crust, prebaking it before putting the cheesecake mixture in, but it turned out very soggy. I think it might have been because springform pans tend to leak, if I try this again I will use a regular pan with a wax paper lining. I did put the cake IN the water bath, despite another reviewer suggesting putting it OVER the bath, as the point of the bath is to insulate the cheesecake from high heat and to control the rate at which heat gets to the cheesecake - if not done then the cheesecake will lose it's moisture. It had absolutely no cracks, but it did have quite a few bubbles which I couldn't seem to get rid of prior to baking. This was my first cheesecake, and though the crust was a major disappointment it was not part of the original recipe, so overall I think the recipe itself was very good but more of a white chocolate flavor and fewer bubbles would've made it perfect.

Banana Stuffed French Toast

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
I used orange juice in replace of the orange liqueur, and skipped the orange zest as I had no oranges. I only had normal bread and I found trying to keep the bananas and two slices of bread together while cooking was difficult, and it fell apart my first try. Instead, I sprayed another pan on which I put the sliced bananas over low/medium heat, flipping them over after a bit. I did the toast separately. I put the bananas over the French toast, sprinkled some powdered sugar on top and it was very good.
