Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
I'm a stickler for reading all the reviews and trying a recipe as is before I make any changes. This bread is delicious! You don't need to change anything. I think raisins would make it dessert-like. Was looking for something for sandwiches and breakfast. My husband just developed a yeast allergy and I was looking for a yeast-free bread recipe. Decided to go with this instead of Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread because of the simplicity as it required no kneading. It's nice hot, just a bit crumbly so wrapped it in foil overnight (after my husband ate half the loaf) but have just had a slice now with butter and it's absolutely awesome! Give it a go I say! I'm just contemplating going to the shop to get some more buttermilk! Thanks for sharing!

Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
So I read most of the reviews and some were very helpful. It's clear that majority get this right and assume everyone has the expertise. I've never had to whip cream so some of the terminologies were confusing. Firstly, the recipe calls for white sugar. Most people say confectioner's sugar when referring to ingredients for frosting. I assumed white sugar was granulated sugar and it worked perfectly. I have to say though, there were one or two mentions about this and I wasn't sure who to go with when I read the reviews but I have to admit I only read the reviews after I thought it had gone wrong. I did exactly as the recipe stated. I'm in the UK though so I used extra thick cream as could not find heavy cream. I also used a hand mixer as that's all I use. I'd made a cake with my mixer and washed up my whisks and glass mixing bowl with hot water as its winter. I don't know if this affected my whisking as it all became very runny, like single cream! I was convinced I would have to chuck it away and start again but I just kept it in the fridge overnight in a jug and then read all the reviews. In the morning, I put my glass mixing bowl and whisks in the freezer for 30 mins as advised by some of the reviewers. I then whisked straight for about 5 mins and the consistency was brilliant even for piping! I would advise to not give up, try this, it's a keeper. I used this on the creamy coconut cake on this website and everyone loved it! Thanks for sharing. Hope this helps x

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
This cake is absolutely awesome!!! I've made this three times now. It's so quick and easy to make, you can't go wrong! I hadn't baked in years when I decided to try this recipe...if I could get it right the first time, anyone can. I agree the freezer step is the most important...the cake is so moist...taking it to work again tomorrow!

Coconut Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2006
This cake is awesome. I've made it twice now and the whole family loved it. Even those averse to eating cake had several helpings! It wasn't too hard and it didn't crumble. I followed other reviews and used the processor to make the coconut flakes more minute, and i also used just two cups of sugar as I'm not a sweet tooth, and two cups was still very sweet, but perfect! Thanks for sharing the recipe...
