Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
This was my first attempt at making cake from scratch. I took reviewers suggestions and substituted oil, and increased milk and sugar by 1/2 cup; cooked for 30-35 mins. I made the chocolate version. It rose beautifully and texture was nice (between dense and fluffy). Looks great, but the taste is too bready/floury, so it definitely needs frosting to cover it up. I like how versatile it is in that you can make different variations.

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
I reduced the butter to 3/4 cups. It still seemed greasy, but it didn't bother me. Tastes good, but too crumbly- maybe the full butter that the recipe calls for would help with that.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
With all the great reviews, I knew this would come out perfectly without changing the recipe. This is my first time making pancakes from scratch and they came out as good as the boxed kind- without all the extra additives. I won't be buying pancake mixes anymore. The recipe is perfect without any changes. They remind me of IHOP because they came out so light and fluffy and also taste great. I was surprised at how easy it was to flip each pancake, without making a mess. I used TEVANS211 review from May 23, 2006 as a guide when making this recipe. I fluffed/mixed the dry ingredients with a fork, since I don't have a sifter. I added the milk and eggs to the melted butter and then stirred into the dry ingredients.. The only change to the actual recipe was TEVENS211 suggestion of adding 1/2 tsp vanilla to the milk mixture (but I don't think it made any difference in the taste). The only downside (which isn't really a downside) is that it makes a lot of pancakes.

Coconut Pecan Frosting I

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2007
Tonight, I had a craving for something sweet but all I had on hand was 1 box of chocolate cake mix and no frosting. I was looking for a recipe with ingredients I had on-hand. This worked out great and was so simple to prepare while my cake was baking. It's easy to spread when you use a rubber spatula.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2006
I followed the recipe exactly (even though cake mix had pudding in it), except it needed to be cooked 20 minutes longer in a bundt pan. I also sprinkled powdered sugar on for visual appeal. I agree with others that it does taste like an ordinary cake mix cake. HOWEVER, it's super moist and the cinnamon mixture is what makes the cake stand out with an addictive taste.

Magic Cookie Bars from EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2006
I mixed the crumbs into the butter before patting it into the pan. Also, I wish I had added the nuts before the coconut so the nuts wouldn't taste roasted. Other than that, this was a simple recipe and it was a good combination of flavors. The sides didn't stick much to the pan, but next time, I'll try the foil and spray as suggested for easier cleanup.

Raspberry Trifle

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2006
The cream and cake were good, but the raspberries made it a bit too sour

Baked Spaghetti II

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2006
It's an easy recipe, but needs more flavor. I made it w/ penne and didn't use bell peppers. The 2nd time I made it, I modified it by seasoning the beef & onions, replacing water with spaghetti sauce, and putting red chili pepper in the sauce for some kick. It came out much better- it's a keeper.

Chocolate Torte

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2005
This was a pretty good cake! I used devil's food cake and (based on others suggestions) I made 1.5 the filling. To me, it still felt a bit skimpy between layers, so I will double the original filling amount next time. I also used Cadbury's Dairy Milk shavings on top instead of unsweetened chocolate.

Candy Bar Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2004
I was going to take the advice of other users to cook it for a shorter time, but I followed the recipe exactly since one user said theirs came out fine with the recipe as is. If I make it again, I will cook it for a shorter amount of time so it's not so hard. It was kind of difficult to spread the bottom layer down. The crumbled 2nd layer came out a little hard, but the whole brownie tasted good after microwaving for a short time to make it soft and warm. As other users said, it does get crumbly fast, but microwaving helps. However, the taste was excellent and my family thought it came out pretty good- taste-wise.
