Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2013
More like 10 stars! This bread is so delicious - perfect flavor and aroma and so moist...and did I mention delicious? I followed the recipe pretty closely but did adapt slightly based on other reviews and personal preferences. I used 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar, and instead of oil I used 3/4 softened butter and 1/4 plain yogurt. I used the spices as called for and then threw in a couple dashes of pumpkin spice blend for good measure. I used mini loaf pans so after a few minutes at 350° I dropped the oven temperature to 325° and mine were perfect at 40 minutes. I cooled the loaves in the pans for close to 10 minutes then transferred to a cooling rack, poked a few holes in the top with a toothpick and glazed them with cream cheese frosting that I had warmed to a pourable glaze consistency. Absolutely divine - my husband and toddler son couldn't get enough! And one more thing - I agree with another reviewer who said this reminds them of the Starbucks Pumpkin Bread. It's definitely at least as good, if perhaps a bit less dense.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2011
Fantastic, delicious, simple recipe!! Admittedly I altered it slightly to suit what I had on hand, but I know it would have been so amazing in its original way also. I didn't have enough bananas so I supplemented the mashed bananas with applesauce & vanilla yogurt until I had 2 1/3 cup wet ingredient. I also subbed about 1/4 cup of the all purpose flour with flax flour (to trick myself into thinking they would be healthier that way ;) and added a little extra sugar, a dash of vanilla, cinnamon & nutmeg, based on other reviewer's suggestions. I ended up making 12 muffins (baked for 22 mins) and a mini loaf (baked for 40) all at 350 degrees F. In spite of all my changes, these still came out moist & so yummy!

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
Oh man did everyone love this cookie! I made these for the first time tonight and they were fantastic - had people over and the cookies are all gone now :) Here are the alterations I made (based on what I had available): 1 cup all-purpose flour + 1/2 whole wheat flour, sifted, increased cinnamon to 1 tsp, used 1/2 cup butter + 1/4 cup applesauce instead of shortening, (2 bananas seemed to be about 1 cup mashed) and used chocolate chips instead of nuts. Baked them in the preheated 400*F oven for 13 minutes - they were golden on the outside, soft and moist and DELICIOUS!!!! on the inside! Wow. Thank you for this recipe blairbunny! ***made these again - no nuts or choc chips as I didn't have any - absolutely AMAZING!!! I love these cookies!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
Fantastic! An easy, delicious recipe to use over-ripe bananas! I used the base recipe with a couple substitutions based on other reviews, which included subbing 1/2 cup of the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour (so 1 cup all-purpose + 1/2 cup whole wheat), and using 1/3 cup canola oil instead of the 1/3 cup melted butter. I sifted all the dry ingredients together, adding 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 3/4 tsp cinnamon. I actually used my food processor to mix the wet ingredients: bananas, sugar, egg, & oil, plus added 1 tsp vanilla. Then I poured the banana mixture into the flour mixture, whisked until just combined, so as not to overmix, and spooned into the muffin cups. I didn't add the topping til the last 5 minutes of baking; baked for 20 minutes total and they were perfect! Lightly browned on the outside, nice and moist and fluffy inside! Thanks for this recipe!

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
Delicious! I had been craving donuts and this satisfied my sweet tooth perfectly - and presumably at least a little healthier since they're baked (not fried like actual donuts). I made the muffin recipe exactly as listed (I did sub butter instead of margarine), but baked them in regular size muffin tin using cupcake liners. The recipe as listed gave me 8 "regular" muffins. Then, instead of rolling them in the butter & cinnamon-sugar mixture I simply drizzled melted butter on the tops of the muffins & sprinkled the cinnamon sugar over the butter while they were still warm & fresh out of the oven. They were fantastic - great taste and texture - I'll definitely make these again! P.S. Since I made these in a regular size muffin tin I baked them for about 21 mins.
