Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2013
Brilliant, works perfectly for me. The basic contents are great and in correct proportion. I've made 2 alterations to the recipe as many reviews mention this: 1) Our oven is quite hot so I lower the heat a bit to prevent the top from bursting 2) I cut back on sugar (use 1 cup) and use raw/ cane sugar as we found it quite sweet the first time. But I guess this may depend on taste and the kind of canned pineapple you use. I've baked it several times and varied ingredients, I use plain skimmed milk and sunflower oil, but cocunut oil worked well too. I usually use more carrot than the recipe mentions, add a little lemon zest and go heavily on cinnamon, or mix with llittle nutmeg and allspice. Another great addition is some poppyseed! Gives you some extra crunchiness in the moist cake.

Banana Split Oat Bran Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2013
A healthy and tasteful alternative to the usual pancakes! I left out the sugar, as I think banana is sweet enough, and the preserve (or maple syrup) adds sweetness as well. I followed another review in letting the batter set for 10 minutes, then added an extra egg and extra milk because the initial batter was too thick (my first batch of pancakes looked like heaps of baked porridge) I also added some grated lemon zest. Will try with some added vanilla flavour and extra banana mash next time, or maybe blue-or raspberries

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2013
It worked out fine in the end, and it was very delicious. Everybody loved it so. I will be using the recipe again and try to vary with nuts and chocolate. After reading other reviews I'd halved the sugar amount and it was still very sweet, but I think the amount of choc chips was too high. I had Hershey's dark chocolate chips so I was surprised about the sweetness of it all.
