Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Banana nut bread

    • fprincess on May 02, 2012

      This banana bread is flavorful and moist, a little on the sweet side (which is not a bad thing). I used butter instead of shortening. I had to increase the cooking time to 1h and 20 minutes even though I made a slightly smaller cake. Woud make again.

  • Gougères

    • fprincess on March 15, 2013

      Yield ~ 45 small gougeres

  • Finnish gingerbread

    • Frogcake on February 02, 2019

      So delicious! And the house was so fragrant while this was baking. Definitely a repeat.

  • Cranberry sauce

    • Frogcake on December 26, 2018

      A perfect cranberry sauce which I made for the turkey this year ( and Mr Frogcake loved it!) I added some subtle touches, which made it extraordinary: a small orange, and half an apple, sliced and fished out after simmering, one quarter tsp of each of cinnamon and allspice. It’s not very sweet and perfectly scented!

  • Royal icing

    • Alowishs on April 29, 2016

      My first attempt at royal icing. Not bad. I'll try a different recipe next time just for the sake of trying it all.
