Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2015
first time I've tried this recipe, followed it exactly as stated, except added a few chocolate chips. I was very happy risen well, and nice and moist, bananary smell/taste and chocolate chips just gave it that extra dimension. Me and partner were the guinea pigs, then took the rest to work following morning for colleagues. Everyone liked them:-) will definitely be making these again, when I have slightly over ripe bananas left over, which could well be soon as in middle of summer.

Grandma's Egg Custard Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2015
I had a 7" pastry tin, but instead of adjusting amounts just made 6 mini ones as well. Had some trouble trying to get them out. Are you meant to butter up the cases first? Cooked all the way through, but bottom of pastry was a little soggy, I did egg wash pastry first as directed. Maybe the mixture leaked a little. Very easy to make otherwise, the custard set beautifully and was delicious. Looked good enough to eat too. I love nutmeg so sprinkled little note on b4 putting into oven. Will try again though I'm aiming for perfection:-)

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2015
I think it was rather dense and not terribly exciting. My bananas were ripe but not overly, that may be key, or think I should have done what some of the other reviewers have done and opted for the nuts and spices road.

Orange Raisin Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2015
the only reason I'm not giving this 5* is because the 1st time I made these, the presentation wasn't perfect for me, as they didn't all turn out the same rounded shape & quite a few cracked on top when fully raised, Maybe they were a little high in the oven, but they were really light, and plenty moist enough, very tasty and the orange taste was not overpowering. I glazed them for a shiny look, with confectionery sugar, some of the orange juice and a tad of water. The second time I made these, some of the muffins the raisins had sank, but a colleague at work told me to flour them before adding to mixture, so will try that, I probably mixed the raisins instead of the folding action. will have to keep an eye on that for next time, I may give it a 5 then:-)

Simple and Delicious Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2015
I tweeked this a little, I used coconut oil instead of the shortening, and cut the sugar, which turned out maybe not as stiff for a really nice piped decoration version, but tasted great, and I'm a novice at pipe work any how, ha..ha..

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2015
have made this now about 4 times, and is one of my favorites, didn't alter a thing except added a little whipping cream on top for decoration purposes only.Very easy to make, was worried that it was too watery and would never set, but patience is a virtue.

Romanian Apple Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2015
This is the second time I've made this now. I reduced the sugar to 2/3rds and substituted 1/2 the oil for apple sauce, which was sweetened, that's why I reduced the sugar content. Very easy recipe to follow, delicious and very moist. Dusted with icing sugar whilst still warm, we were going to have it with custard but couldn't wait ha..ha.. Mine seems darker than everyone else's. I did use 2 tablespoons of cinnamon though, and think it took a little longer to bake than my 1st one, mustn't have been as thick a dough. Gave a slice to my neighbour, we will eat the rest tomorrow with the custard this time:-)

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2014
this recipe made a really good crust, I used exactly the stated amount of ingredients, and found this crust too thick, but that was only because it was only two of us eating it, so for a family 4+ this thickness would be great, will use 1/2 the amount for a thinner crust next time if it's just for two of us. Forgot to take a photo, will do next time, as there definately will be. Very easy to do and not time consuming.

Vegetarian Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2014
I used a 6" quiche tin that I salvaged from a bought one, & made my own pastry for this dish, I didn't have a lot of the ingredients for this recipe, so I basically used what I had. I used beaten eggs, a little milk,grated cheese, chopped onions, mushrooms and tomatoes inside, and garnished on top a little cheese and sliced tomatoes.

Morning Glory Muffins II

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2014
have just made them, I adjusted the recipe to 10 muffins, but made 6 large ones instead, I changed the ingredients a bit, I used 1/2 olive oil with 1/2 apple sauce, and 1/2 sugar v's 1/2 honey, and instead of the dates I used sultanas, and used grated almonds for the nuts. I didn't have a tooth pick to check they were ready, but got a tip off a website to use spaghetti. They turned out springy and moist, and tasty, I think for special occasions would like to top it with icing or something, but will deffo make this again:-)

Quick and Easy Yorkshire Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2014
I tried this recipe after giving up trying with others, I did everything to the book except I kept mine on at 190c, as I was scared they wouldn't rise, they raised quite well, and were fluffy in the middle and crispy on the outside, a little darker on top than they probably should have been, so maybe I will turn the oven down a little after initial 190c and just keep them in a little longer, but as a whole they looked very similar to the photo! thanks. will keep this recipe for life now:)
