Apple Cinnamon White Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2014
This cake was a success and I got a lot of compliments when I made it for company. The only reason for giving 4 stars and not five is that I made a few modifications after reading other reviews, which I believe improved the cake. To begin with I used 2 apples and I grated them instead of chopping them. I increased the cinamon to 2 tsps. and the brown sugar to 1/2 cup and added 1/2 tsp of salt. I used a 9x5 inch loaf pan and layered like this - spread half the batter then topped with half the brown sugar cinnamon mixture, swirled it into the batter and then added a layer of half the apples and repeated this.

Cranberry Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2014
Made this cake twice already. The first time followed the recipe exactly. It was great the first day when just baked. But when I ate the leftovers out of the fridge the next day, the cake totally changed consistency. It was hard and too dense. Warming it in the microwave for a few secs set it right. Guess the mayo sort of solidified in the fridge or something. The next time, instead of mayo used 1/2 cup vegetable oil and 1/2 cup applesauce. This time it was perfect. Great flavor and texture even the next day straight out of the fridge.

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies I

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2014
My first attempt at making cookies and I was very pleased ! The only reason why I'm rating only 4 stars and not the full 5 is that I didn't stick exactly to the recipe, made the following changes: used whole wheat flour, no nuts, doubled the chocolate chips. However, these were not really chewy. They turned out crisp on the outside and soft and cake like on the insides. We loved them. Will definite make these again !

Old-Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2014
If really light and fluffy pancakes are what you are looking for then this is definitely your recipe. However I took the suggestions of some other reviewers and diddle some changes. I reduced the salt to 1/2 tsp, increased the sugar to 3 tbsps and added 1 tbsp of vanilla extract. The taste was good though not excellent. Also the batter is thicker than most pancake batters but it works fine.

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2014
A good healthy fibre rich muffin. Made a few changes though - used all whole wheat flour, 2 bananas, brown sugar, I cup milk with a tbsp of lemon instead of buttermilk. I was happy with the results. Will definitely make these again.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2014
The recipe was perfect. Even the baking time was perfect. Only minor alteration that I made was to add 1 tsp of baking powder and to mash the bananas (as suggested by other reviewers) and add a tsp of cinnamon powder. I ended up with a loaf that was just perfectly moist and had the perfect taste - just the right sweetness. I'm definitely gonna make this more !

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2013
Not an authentic Alfredo sauce but definitely a delicious cheese sauce. I guess the difference is the absence of cream. Followed the recipe exactly. Only difference was that instead of garlic powder I added 2 cloves of grated garlic.

My-Hop Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2013
This is a great recipe. Followed it exactly. Except let the batter sit for just about 30 mins. Used milk and increased the lemon as suggested. Lovely light, fluffy pancakes !

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2012
Perfect brownies but bad frosting ! The brownies themselves are delicious ! They turn out perfect. Nice and crusty on top and nice and gooey on the inside. I followed the recipe exactly and beat it by hand not in an electric beater. Also the baking time is important. Mine was perfect on 30 mins. However the icing was a huge disappointment. Overly sweet and also the honey added a strange flavor. I chose not to use it.
