Cake Batter Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2014
The first attempt didn't even make it into the ice cream machine. I did add a 1/4 cup (Pillsbury yellow) cake mix, but followed the recipe instructions exactly. The mixture turned into extremely thick pudding around 140F. I chilled it in the fridge, and in a few hours it had become even more sluggish and a bit separated. It seems that the cake mix acted like cornstarch. But I was determined to make cake batter ice cream, so I ended up remaking the mixture, omitting the eggs and skipping the cooking step all together. I didn't want to waste what little cake mix was left so ended up using close to 1.5 cups of cake mix. Without the heat, this didn't seem to be a problem. The eggless version worked well in the ice cream machine and, although hardened slightly in the freezer, was still workable the next day. I quite liked the taste and texture wasn't bad, although a little bit of grittiness was left from the cake mix. Would make the eggless, uncooked version again. Certainly not using the written recipe again unless I want gelatinous cake batter pudding. If you are set on a cake batter ice cream recipe with eggs, I'd guess your best choices are to either not fully cook the eggs or to add the cake mix after bringing the rest of the mixture to 160F and letting it cool back to room temperature. Also, add the vanilla extract after cooking so you don't loose the flavor.

Easy Pie Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
Just as the three stars suggest, this recipe was 'okay'. I really wasn't a fan of the oil smell/taste, or the texture. It really didn't hold together well at all, very crumbly. I used this crust with a coconut meringue pie, and so added a T. of sugar and halfed the salt. I wish I would of added more sugar and even less salt. It is a very simple and no-mess recipe. I'll probably play with the ingredients a bit in the future to see if I can get something that works a bit better. I'm thinking I'll use melted butter instead of oil, very little salt, and quite a bit more sugar.
