Chantal's New York Cheesecake
Nothing more can be said bout this great cheesecake! But for those thinking of making this 'healthier', I used Low-Fat greek style yogurt instead of sour cream and you won't be able to tell the difference. Also, I baked it at 225degF for 3.5 hrs as the other reviewer suggested, grease the sides of the pan well and a pan of water on the bottom rack of the oven. No cracks. Also, if there are tiny air bubbles in the mixture when pouring into the cakepan, you might wanna poke it or it will create little holes on the final product.

Lemon Pudding Cake I
I've never tried a lemon pudding cake but from now onwards, this wld be the recipe i turn to whenever i need my lemon fix! Its lower in fat as compared to other desserts so u don't have to feel guilty reaching for another slice! That said, it was a very refreshing and light cake. As what another reviewer put it, its like an angel cake on top with lemon curd at the bottom. The sugar in the recipe was wayyy too much. I increased the lemon juice to 1/2 cup, 3 tsp lemon zest, used only 1/2 cup + 2 tbs sugar and omitted the salt. I had it cold from the fridge and it was great. Can't wait to try it warm!

Banana Banana Bread
Barely mash the bananas for more flavour and for a moist muffin-like cake, melt the butter. I added 1tsp baking powder for a more fluffly bread. Replaced 1 cup of APF for half bran and rolled oats for fibre. And added spices as per other reviews. Very good banana flavour!
