One Bowl Chocolate Cake III
followed it EXACTLY with the exception of a little variation with the oven time, which is different for each oven. However, all i had to do is check the center with a toothpick. Ok, so it was a big hit, especially when i filled it with a layer of raspberry jam and thawed out raspberries, and a second layer of chocolate fudge. Then iced it with no other than chocolate icing (only a thin layer) then used chocolate shavings to decorate plus fresh strawberries on top (i was out of fresh raspberries). I was doubtful at first because the batter was runny. I'll try it again and again with different flavours (maybe some coffee, less cocoa poweder,...etc). Thank You

Grandma's Eggless, Butterless, Milkless Cake
My husband watches his cholesterol (no eggs, milk, butter, oil). This is perfect for him. I made half of recipe. Tasted the batter, felt the after taste of baking soda, so i sprinkled some brown sugar and it took care of that. Next time i'll use as suggested by others 2/3cup brown (or a mix of brown and white). I also added 1/4tsp salt (not sure for what but as suggested), also used 4tbsp of cocoa. Next time i'll try to lower amount of oil. Also, not sure if someone already tried to use honey or maple syrup instead of sugar, if so, please share your results. Overall, more than my husband can dream of. Finally he can have a chocolate cake and not feel guilty about it. Thanks

Strawberry Shortcake
Here are my changes: used 2tsp baking powder, 1/4 cup sugar (i think it'll require 1/2 cup for sweeter taste), 1/2 cup shortening & 1/2tsp Vanilla, baked for 10-15min on middle rack in a muffin tray (good for 8 individual servings). It turned out very moist, fluffy and it solved the cracking problem. It was soft and easy to cut, not a single crumb. I also sprayed pam on the surface of batter before baking and sprinkled with sugar. This is my first time trying a shortcake, maybe there is better but so far this is good enough for my taste. Hope this will be of a help to others. Next time will experiment with less shortening.
