    Lots of great recipes in here. I especially love the cinnamon-crunch, blackberry, and vanilla-pear muffins in this book.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Strawberry-rhubarb breakfast cake

    • Breadcrumbs on May 28, 2012

      p. 76 The first rhubarb of the season always has me searching for new recipes to put spring’s bounty to use. This sounded like a great recipe to do just that and I opted to up the rhubarb content in place of some of the strawberries (roughly a 50/50 mix) to ensure the rhubarb’s lovely tart flavours shone through. This recipe is quick and easy to prepare, especially if an electric mixer is used. My cake rose to almost 6 inches though my topping of cinnamon-sugar never did turn golden brown. The book suggests you use an angel food cake pan w a removable bottom. I just used a regular angel food cake pan that I buttered then dusted w breadcrumbs and hoped for the best. Happily the cake released without issue. This recipe produced a delicious cake. Light, airy and moist on the inside with a lovely crunchy exterior. This cake endured the morning commute and made for a perfect spring breakfast cake. Photos here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/847336#7367353

  • Cranberry-orange muffins

    • Frogcake on January 20, 2019

      Fabulous muffins. I ran out of orange juice so added half a cup of orange “naked”. Made six jumbo (they’re meaty!) muffins and sprinkled tops with oat flakes and sunflower seeds.
