Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
Fantastic! I enjoy baking cakes, but I don't often use yeast or bake breads so was a little anxious, but this recipe was SO easy! For any Brits out there, the .25 ounce of yeast it calls for is just your regular 7g sachet of Allison/Hovis "Easy bake yeast". The only thing I changed after reading the reviews was to only make up half of the stated filling quantity and found that it was just right. I also didn't use a muffin pan -to keep them softer on the edges as others suggested- so I used a 10 x10 inch square pan instead and filled it with the rolls. I made around 14 rolls and it was perfect! Another handy tip I saw on the TV the other day for cutting dough rolls into slices- is to use either dental floss or thin embroidery thread! Honestly it is a brilliant method! So once you have the dough in one long sausage shape all rolled up, slide the floss under the roll at the place you want to slice...then tie it in a knot on the top of the roll (so the thread is now around the whole diameter of the roll) and gently tie the knot tighter around the roll until it completely cuts through it! Perfect slices every time! No need to stand there for ages trying to gently cut through it with a knife!!

Sweet Potato Oranges

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out great! They look really impressive and the recipe is really very simple. My family loved them although they were a touch too sweet- even for my sweet tooth! The topping is basically pure sugar, but it was actually the sweetness of the filling that started to get a bit sickly towards the bottom. The topping we really liked because it tastes like a fudgey caramel and crystallizes around the nuts. Next time, I will only use 1/2 cup of white sugar in the filling.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
I'm English and was looking for American style, fluffy pancakes. This recipe was perfect! The texture and appearance of the pancakes is great! Just like pancakes from Dennys or Ihop! haha I followed the recipe EXACTLY and made 8 fluffy pancakes the size of a tea cup saucer. The only thing I would say, is that they were a little too salty for my taste. Next time I will only use half the salt suggested and add a little Vanilla Extract :) Great, thankyou!
