Seven Minute Frosting II

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
With a yellow cake, the taste and texture are very nice. The icing has a mildly crispy meringue shell and adds moisture to the cake especially if kept unrefrigerated. The seven minutes the title purports is totally inaccurate. It took at LEAST 20 minutes with my hand mixer before the meringue got to the soft peak stage. As for the act of frosting, that can be a bit challenging. This icing is a bit thin for my liking. I ended up with icing all over my counter. This frosting is just not very effective for layered cakes, as it just oozes out from between the layers. This may have been avoided if allowed to completely dry before adding another layer. Try fresh berries instead. It takes quite a few (four or more) hours to completely set. I would have been building this cake for a few days had I gone by that method. The drying time (for lack of a better term) also prohibits stencils from being used effectively. To the credit of this icing, it DOES taste GREAT and contains much less fat and calories than a butter-cream type of frosting. Making this recipe is a challenging, but rewarding experience. Seven minute frosting complimented the yellow cake from King Arthur Four's Baker's Companion very nicely indeed.

Buttermilk Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
I really enjoyed this for my afternoon tea. I used margarine instead of vegetable oil. That makes an excellent tasting crust. Served with syrup and lavender tea. Bon apetit!

Indian Lassi

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
This was fast, easy, and delicious. I put a banana in, as it would have spoiled within a day, and garnished with cinnamon.

Angel Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
I made this and it was SooOOOooo good. My kids helped me roll the dough into balls, and in the sugar, and we had a great time. Also, these cookies keep very well in the freezer. If you are thinking about substituting margarine for the butter that is called for in this recipe, DON'T. I tried making these for my sister in-law that has a milk alergy, but the turned out terribly when margarine was used (twice).

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Raisin

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2004
I really like this recipe! It is simple, straightforward, delicious and (somewhat) nutritious. I really love baking with whole wheat flour, and I was delighted to see that this recipe called for it. What a surprise!

Sue's Two-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2004
I tried made this recipe with my wife. The cookies were good, but too thin for my liking. I also didn't use as many chocolate chips as the recipe called for, because it just seemed like WAY to much.

Blueberry Muffins I

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2004
I made this recipe last night. let them sit in the pan overnight, and had them in the morning when my wife came home from working a twelve hour shift. Even she said they were "Really, really GOOD!" Theny were easy to make. I had no trouble making them, with one hand holding a squirming 14 month old baby.
