Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
I was looking for a cake recipe that i could make from scratch and get a box mix type of flavour and texture, but as other reviewers i have to agree its not like the box mixes at all. I used oil and increased the milk to 1 1/2 cups.. the result... the cake rose beautifully, was golden brown on the outside and white on the inside flavour= fresh out of the oven it tasted like flour, oil and eggs, kind of sticky although when i checked to see if it was done the toothpick came out clean... 2 days later, the flavour was MUCH better, not at all like it was the first day. texture= very soft and moist in the end i think if i ever make this again i will make it a day or two before i need it coz it really changes the flavour to resemble a box cake to some extent.

Super Easy Doughnuts

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
I read the other reviews before trying this recipe on my own, i used 1/2 cup of milk and a tbsp. of vinegar and was expecting a 'runny' mixture since the other reviews mentioned that it will take a good amount of flour to get it to a rollable consistency so here's what i did: 1)i dropped a spoonful of dough onto a mound of flour and worked it lightly with my fingertips to get a soft rollable dough and cut out doughtnut holes 2) i dropped spoonfuls of the dough directly into the frying pan the RESULTS: i felt the rollaed doughnuts had a more flourey taste and were slightly dense. the douhgnuts i made dropping batter directly into the oil were soft and light and tasted like dunkin donuts cake doughnuts BUT i will say that its a lot trickier to fry them by dropping spoonfuls because if the oil is too hot they wont cook compltely from the centre and if the oil isnt hot enough then they will take longer to cook and you'll end up with a really oily doughnut. so i guess the next time i try this recipe i will try to control the temperature of the oil and droop 1/4 teaspoonfuls at a time to get a bite sized doughnut that's perfectly cooked
