Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2014
Very dense and tasty. Excellent base recipe that you can augment with spices or nuts, raisins etc. You do need about 5 bananas. I took others' advice and was careful to just blend in the flour, then switch to wooden spoon to mix in any nuts/dried fruit. I also added about 1 tsp cinnamon, half tsp nutmeg & vanilla, and dashes of clove & allspice. I always add walnuts. I have also added dried craisins and chocolate chips (half bag)--husband and stepson inhaled most of the loaf in a day. Thank you for a great kitchen standby recipe!

Carrot Cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
Excellent recipe that you can modify easily to taste. Got excellent reviews from recipients. I made the following tweaks: doubled the batter recipe so frosting proportion was perfect; used heaping teaspoons of the spices; threw in a scant 1/4 tsp baking powder in addition to baking soda; added in raisins; re frosting, I used about a cup less sugar and fresh lemon zest rather than the orange extract (didn't have any on hand). I made a 9x13" cake and 12 muffins. Cake took a bit longer to bake, but both turned out puffy, moist and delicious. That frosting recipe is KILLER--just adjust sugar to your liking. This recipe is a keeper!!!!
