"I found this recipe to be not very good for the following reasons. The dough is very sticky and can't be rolled out as written in the recipe. The recipe should include wrapping the dough and chilling it before rolling out and then thoroughly chilled before cutting and cooking. I found the cookies to be not very sweet and I wasn't thrilled with the"
"Strange question but I have a lot of pastry flour that I'm going to use for Christmas baking. Has anyone ever used it for making a light bread? Since its between all-purpose and bread flour and is used for pie shells and pastry I would think that it could also be used for light airy bread. Say something on the order of Ciabata."
"This question has probably been asked many times before but I can't find an answer. When baking a cake with added ingredients, such as coconut, how do you stop the added ingredients from sinking to the bottom of the baking pan? I would like to make a coconut cake that has the coconut throughout the cake. Somewhere in the dark recesses of my mind th..."
"This is a very good cake. I found it to be a little bit lighter than a pound cake but that's a good thing. It was hard to wait for it to cool. The only things I would change are 1. include some sort of topping ( frosting or maybe a coconut rum infused glaze ) and I would add more coconut BUT I am a coconut junkie and always add more than any recipe..."
"A very good cake. My dollops also sank into the cake but it tasted so good - who cares. This is definitely a keeper. I agree that its almost like an upside German Chocolate Cake. Will put this in my computer recipe program and give it 5 stars. Of course peppermintkitty will get the credit."
"This recipe comes from KitchenKonfedence web site and is by Brandon Matzek. This is a copycat recipe from the Brooklyn bakery Baked. This is the marriage of a brownie and a chocolate chip cookie and is fantastic. This was featured on the Food Network Channel."
"In the last three messages I've sent I've noticed that the message box is only one line tall. About a week ago it was small but there was a small arrow on the bottom right side that would allow the message box to be expanded. The last two messages I'v sent do not have this option. Its a little bothersome when you can only see one line of your messa..."
"The taste of this recipe is very old worldly and very good. The only problem that I have with it is the height of the finished product. It is very thin and really couldn't stand alone as a dessert. It is more like a lightly moist topping. I'm going to try it one more time in a 8X8 or 9X9 pan and see if that helps."
"Well this is a really a good cake! I must admit that I've never mixed a cake batter like this one, adding eggs directly to the dry ingredients, but it works very well. The next time I make it I will decrease the sugar some as it is a little too sweet for me and reduce the amount of brown sugar in the topping. The cake looked beautiful when I turned..."
"I'm sorry but being from Texas and having eaten my share of tamales, I found these to be visually unappealing ( sort of a light brown color ) as well as extremely dry. I gave this recipe 2 stars because the taste wasn't too bad. The cumin came out very well."
"I made this for my VFW this weekend and after sneaking a few bites, as I was shredding the meat, I decided that I had 1/2 of a brisket in the freezer so I made a batch for myself. This is a really good recipe. I added some dried onion as I do love onion in my dipping sauce but otherwise I let the meat and dip speak for themselves. Good Recipe!!!"
"Baked this for Thanksgiving and it was a hit! I really liked the bright citrus flavor and the texture the crunch layer gave the cake. I brought the orange flavor out even by adding homemade orange powder to the cake mix and to the topping. This will go into my Go To list for cakes. This is a winner and if there were more starts to give, I would giv..."
"Today is the third time that I've made this recipe. I make enough for 50 servings. The Bingo Ladies at my VFW request it at least twice a year since I first made it. It is definitely a big hit. Looks like I'll be making it for a long time. Great recipe!!"
