Strawberry Cake from Scratch

Reviewed: May 28, 2013
I'm giving this recipe 4 stars because it does require some adjustments. However, with the adjustments, this recipe produces an amazing, moist, fluffy, and delicious strawberry cake! 1 - Measure the flour AFTER sifting it! It makes a huge difference! Here's what I did: I measured out 2 & 3/4 cups of cake flour & sifted it twice. I then measured 2 & 3/4 cups of the sifted flour to add to the actual cake. If you're really against sifting, lower the flour amount to 2 & 1/4 cup. 2 - Make the puree from fresh strawberries & a pinch of sugar. It's a must! 3 - Separate egg yolks & whites. Add the yolks into the batter when it tells you to "add the eggs." Beat the whites in a clean bowl until they form stiff peaks. Fold this into the batter just before pouring it into pans. 4 - Use salted butter OR add a pinch of salt to the batter if you are using unsalted butter 5 - Just a note: Make SURE that you flour your pans as the recipe tells you to! This helps the cake to "climb" (rise). I frosted this cake w/ chocolate buttercream per my brother's request. It was amazing! :)

Black Walnut Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
I followed the recipe exactly except I believe I was using regular walnuts and not black walnuts. Oops! Oh well, it was still delicious :) It tastes of cinnamon, sugar, and nuts. I made this for my grandmother's birthday :) Used my great grandmother's glaze recipe for on top.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
I followed this recipe ALMOST exactly. The ONLY thing I did differently was separate the egg yolks from egg whites. I beat the egg whites into stiff peaks and folded them in at the very end right before baking this cake in two 9-inch rounds for 45 minutes! I also found and used "baking raisins," which were more moist than typical raisins. The end result was an incredibly moist and flavorful cake. My mom LOVED it! I made this with the Cream Cheese Frosting II recipe on this site. Absolutely perfect!

Mom's Buttermilk Pancakes

A bit too salty. I made a double batch - I shouldn't have doubled the salt. Otherwise, fantastic!

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 15, 2012
I followed this recipe exactly and did not change anything. It was delicious, but I still felt there was a little something missing. I believe that something was bacon. Next time, I will add some chopped up bacon to the apples! yum yum!
