Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2013
Baked a test muffin without blueberries and in 20 minutes it came out perfect. Light, moist. High golden dome with a cute lil crack in the middle, nothing to complain about. Adding blueberries though I see I need a longer baking time, maybe because my blueberries were frozen(I don't like the juice tinting the batter so I prefer freezing my blueberries overnight). Had to add extra 10 minutes and that did the trick, so I guess with frozen berries 30 min would be the right time. As I am European and do not care for diets and such, I added softened butter rather than oil, and to avoid the very crunchy crystallised top you sometimes get with regular granulated sugar I used half caster and half regular. Turned out excellent. I can't promise my measurements were super precise, for example, I added only as much sour cream as I had on hand(~300g, recipe said 460), my butter stick is 180g, so that's what went into it. I didn't have vanilla extract so I used a few generous teaspoons of powdered vanilla sugar, also added a teaspoon of baking powder(I was a little surprised when I only saw baking soda, I always think for proper rise in cakes and such you need baking powder..). Maybe because of my alterations, maybe in spite of them the muffins are quite perfect and I'll be making these again soon(blueberry season here!).

Simple 'N' Delicious Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2012
The first time I made it, something went wrong - full hour and it was still absolutely liquid. I was so disappointed, but decided to give it another try - all the good reviews can't be just imagination! So yesterday I tried again and it was as if I had used a completely different recipe! It rose up beautifully, with just a little bump in the middle, it was perfectly cooked in 40 minutes, looks absolutely delicious. I haven't tried it yet, as I'm debating whether to bring it as a present all in one piece(I really do want to try, though). I'd give it a 5 had I tried for taste, I'm sure it's delicious.
