Moist, Tender Spice Cake: Gingerbread Variation

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
Even though I cut back on the ginger and added nutmeg, there was a sort of odd flavor that other reviewers commented on. I'm wondering if it's the combination of butter and cornstarch. I've never seen cornstarch like this in a baking recipe, and I think my old standby recipe called for oil. I think I'll keep looking for a better gingerbread, and get rid of this one.

Spaetzle I

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
My family has made homemade egg noodles for generations using a very similar recipe, rolling out the dough and letting it dry and cutting it into strips. This is SO much quicker, and tastes just the same! People who were having trouble pressing it through a colander were probably trying to use one with small holes. The one I used has holes a little less than 1/4 inch. The only trouble I had was the steam from the boiling broth scorching my fingers. I may invest in a spaetzle press, since they're only $10 at Amazon.
