Pikelets (Scottish Pancakes)

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2008
This is a good recipe, but a bit runny and much better if you use golden syrup instead of sugar. (I think you lot call it corn syrup?) By the way, pikelets are Welsh. These are drop scones. To DannyMuirMhor: Who're you calling a sassanach, ye raj? ;)

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
I originally nade these for my son. Unfortunately he's not getting any because they're too nice. I think I deserve them, after all it took me about ten minutes to make and bake them. Mmmm. Go down well with rum. :)

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2007
Well, I had some bananas to use up and, rather than waste them (I'm Scottish - too mean to throw out food) I thought I'd make something. It was either this or a banana daquiry. Since I was already drunk I thought I'd go for the bread. It smelt gorgeous while it was cooking. It came out perfect (not bad considering I wasn't paying attention to the time - see above, moist, not burnt - hurrah! I took my first bite, holding my breath in aticipation - meh. Bit bland. I was so dissapointed I got the blender out and make daquiries after all. It's not bad with some Nutella slathered on though. Would someone explain Pumkin Pie spice for the brit in the corner?

Billy's Favorite Gingerbread Spiced Coffee Syrup

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2007
The only problem is that there's just not enough! Next time I'll reduce the simmering time as it turned out a little too gloopy. I think I'll also use splenda, as I've eaten half of it already off the back of a spoon. UPDATE: I got hold of some Allspice berries from ebay and it turned out WAY better with them than with the ground. I crushed the ginger through a garlic press, next time I'll try the suggestion of adding brandy. Just had a gingerbread latte for breakfast, just the thing for a cold Scottish morning!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: May 24, 2003
My friend said this was so nice she didn't want to eat it! I substituted half the oil for applesauce, and used mixed spice instead of just cinamon, and it came out lovely. The icing however was the best icing I've ever tried. There was too much of it, but I just ate the leftover with a spoon.
