Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Blueberry muffin loaf

    • AngelNewsi on August 07, 2020

      This was delicious and super easy. However, it tasted more like a blueberry pancake with maple syrup than a blueberry muffin. Either way - really yummy!

    • Shewi128 on May 20, 2022

      Very easy alternative to making muffins. Be careful to not overcook the cake/loaf.

  • Vanilla malted milk cake

    • Emily Hope on March 31, 2021

      This was pretty nice--following uk2nl's lead made it as a bundt cake. With the longer bake time for a bundt it did seem a little dry (wish I had pulled it from the oven a few minutes sooner). Kept for a few days, and was good toasted in the toaster oven with a little salted butter. Wish it had had a bit more malt flavor--if I were to make again, I might up the malt powder a bit and swap some of the butter for oil.

    • uk2nl on May 23, 2020

      Delicious!Made this as a no layer bundt cake. It went down really well with the family too.

    • amystar on March 12, 2022

      I made this as a 4 layer cake using Wilton’s 8” Easy Layers. I made 2/3 of the recipe and baked it for 20 mins at the recommended temp. the cake was fluffy and stayed moist for more than four days. Delicious. I will make it again and again. lovely twist to a plain vanilla cake. the frosting and cake produced a very sweet dessert. smaller slices are recommended.

  • Vanilla malted milk icing

    • Emily Hope on March 31, 2021

      This frosting recipe is insanely good--better than the cake it's intended for. I did cut back pretty substantially on the sugar (maybe by a third to a half?), and it was still plenty sweet. Dangerously delicious, although a bit too cloying (even with the reduced sugar) with the vanilla malted cake.

    • amystar on March 12, 2022

      I made 3/4 of the recipe and added 20g of natural cocoa. it produced an insanely delicious frosting. i used 2 teaspoons vanilla extract instead of vanilla bean paste. the malt milk powder added a very pleasant twist to a plain milk chocolate frosting. the frosting and cake produced a very sweet dessert. smaller slices are recommended.

  • German chocolate cake

    • nadiam1000 on August 29, 2021

      I made the recipe for chocolate frosting only - needed a quick frosting for the sides of my German Chocolate Cake. I cut the recipe in half and added 1/4 tsp kosher salt and 1/2 tsp vanilla. Nice and creamy and I like the tang from the addition of sour cream but it is quite sweet and light on chocolate flavor. Typical for American buttercream.

  • Spiced fruitcake

    • hillsboroks on December 02, 2022

      This cake is a fall delight. I baked it for my husband's birthday and we all loved it. The brandy flavor is just right and the fruit filling is a nice contrast to the sweet frosting. The cake itself is spiced just right and isn't too sweet, again a good contrast with the frosting. The frosting, while quite sweet, is really well flavored with lots of vanilla and easy to make. Next time I will make sure to start brushing the brandy simple syrup onto the layers as soon as possible. I will definitely make this cake again.

  • Cranberry citrus coffee cake

    • lkgrover on November 12, 2022

      Loved this cake; great combination of sweet, tart, and nutty crunch. I only had one lemon & one orange; used both zests in the cake mix & both citrus juices in the glaze. Cross posted with the recipe in the Nov/Dec 2019 magazine.

  • Homestyle berry pie

    • lkgrover on July 27, 2020

      Excellent berry pie! The filling thickened well with dark berries. My blackberries were large, so I mashed them before mixing the blueberries & other filling ingredients. I used butter for the crust instead of lard, and turbinado sugar on top of the crust (because it looks pretty). Also posted on the July/Aug 2019 magazine edition for the recipe.

  • Lemon pound cake

    • ecarlin on June 04, 2022

      Simple recipe that needs more lemon flavor. Add a simple lemon glaze to the finished cake.

  • Shortcut sourdough boule

    • Shewi128 on May 31, 2022

      I accidentally used Red star platinum yeast instead of their sourdough platinum yeast. However, it still had a light sourdough flavor. It was incredibly easy to shape and bake. I will make it again.

  • Tomato sourdough focaccia

    • Shewi128 on May 19, 2022

      I baked this with traditional yeast. It still turned out well, and I surprisingly liked the addition of the grape tomatoes.

  • Four-cheese pull-apart milk bread

    • Shewi128 on May 19, 2022

      This turned out exactly as pictured. It's a great bread for a group.

  • Apple crumb cake with crème fraîche glaze

    • Shewi128 on May 06, 2022

      I thought this was good, but nothing too memorable. Having to prepare the apples in 2 different ways (chopped and sliced) was a bit annoying. I did like the streusel on top.

  • Black-and-white thumbprint cookies

    • Shewi128 on May 19, 2022

      Delicious and super simple. Definitely would make again!

  • Red velvet peppermint cookies

    • Shewi128 on May 20, 2022

      I loved these cookies. Perfect amount of chew and flavor. Don't skip the toppings.

  • Red velvet cake

    • Shewi128 on May 18, 2022

      This was very, very good. I didn't use the ermine frosting, but used a cream cheese frosting instead, The cake was tender. The mix made 24 cupcakes (instead of the 2 full cake rounds). The batter was quite thick, so when I tried to add chocolate chips to the tops of the cupcakes, the chips didn't sink to the bottom. I would definitely make this again.

  • Triple-vanilla scones with cinnamon sugar filling

    • Shewi128 on May 06, 2022

      These were really good, but not really worth the hassle or extra ingredients.

  • Buttermilk biscuits

    • Shewi128 on May 23, 2022

      These were really tender and flaky. However, the method was a little too much for a breakfast.

  • Dried herb ciabatta

    • Shewi128 on May 06, 2022

      We did not like this. It tasted like Thanksgiving stuffing. The bread was just odd. Definitely won't make again.

  • Cereal dessert bars

    • taste24 on September 01, 2020

      My family agreed that these are just too sweet. The cereal milk pastry cream by itself is delicious, but needs a crust that tames its sweetness. I don't think I crushed the cereal small enough for the crust and it tastes almost.. stale.

  • Coffee tres leches cakes

    • taste24 on January 13, 2021

      There were quite a few components that went into these little cakes, but it was worth it - they were delicious. I made my own coffee simple syrup, which was peculiar and quite thick. It was difficult to warm up if saving and serving later on. I subbed Erin Jeanne McDowell's extra thick and creamy whipped cream with coffee extract for the meringue.
