Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Multigrain pancakes

    • cthdawn on February 21, 2013

      wonderful pancakes; my go to recipe!! added chai and penzey's baking spice this time and used alton brown's advice to add sugar to wet ingredients not dry. took all dry ingredients for a spin in the food processor also. LOVE this pancakes

  • Lattice-top fresh cherry pie

    • porterbl1 on September 04, 2010

      This is my quintessential cherry pie recipe. It takes 3 jars of sour cherries to equal 6 cups. I ended up using 1 cup + one heaping tablespoon sugar in the filling. The tablespoon sugar on top of the pie was perfect! I did use Rose Levy Berenbaum's cream cheese pie crust for the lattice instead of the one called for.

  • Blueberry buckle

    • rsmalberg on June 21, 2011

      This is a great summer recipe, with fresh blueberries and lemon zest. Not too sweet, it has a lovely crumb topping. Easy and delicious!

  • Almond ring coffee cake

    • jtodes on February 10, 2017

      Very good and easy to make. It just takes time because of the 2 rises.

  • Simple tarte Tatin

    • jbuchman on November 30, 2014

      Page 480. Made sauce with Calvados instead of Grand Marnier. Excellent and easy.

  • Applesauce snack cake

    • Analyze on March 12, 2019

      This is SO good! The base cake has a wonderful apple flavor and a great texture. I tried both this recipe, and the Oat-Nut Streusel variation. My husband, who doesn't normally like oat streusel or sweet quick breads, loved the streusel variation. I actually preferred this original version with the cinnamon-sugar topping, as in my opinion it complements the apple flavor in the cake better, and actually makes the cake taste more apple-y. You can't go wrong with either version, or try half and half like I did :) I already have several apple cake recipes that I love, and didn't think I needed another, but I did! I'm excited to try the ginger-cardamom version next. Personally, we had it for breakfast, but this would be great with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream too.

  • Cream cheese frosting

    • Karen_S. on April 03, 2022

      Fluffy, yummy. Makes 4 C, but has a 3 C variation.

  • Shortbread

    • KBHughes on February 10, 2019

      The texture is perfection.

    • Shewi128 on June 23, 2022

      This has been my favorite shortbread recipe that I've made over the years. It is not easy to hand-knead the dough to combine the ingredients before rolling out into a shape, but it is worth the effort. The texture is tender and crumbly--shortbread perfection.

  • Rich chocolate bundt cake

    • Trepess on May 15, 2021

      Bundt is in the oven. I added 1 cup of chocolate chips. All I can say so far is that you do have to wait for things to get to room temperature, and then for the chocolate mixture to cool down after adding boiling water. Also, the batter is delicious ;-)

  • Black bottom cupcakes

    • Shewi128 on June 23, 2022

      I've made these a few times, and I really like the combo of chocolate with cream cheese. It's like a cupcake version of cream cheese brownies. I forgot about this recipe--maybe I'll have to make them again soon!

  • Almost no-knead bread

    • Shewi128 on June 23, 2022

      This bread is one of my favorite breads for the ease of making it. However, if you put the pan too close to the bottom of the oven, the bread will definitely overcook on the bottom.

  • Quick cinnamon buns

    • Shewi128 on June 23, 2022

      This dough is very soft like a biscuit dough, so the rolling out was very frustrating and sticky. Personally, that process frustrated me enough to not make the recipe again even though the rolls tasted good.

  • Oatmeal butterscotch bars

    • Shewi128 on June 23, 2022

      Another salty-sweet treat our family loves. Melting butterscotch chips is a pain, but otherwise the bars are easy. Make sure to remove the bars from the pan as the recipe instructs, or the bars will end up overcooked and dry.

  • Thick and chewy chocolate chip cookies

    • Shewi128 on June 17, 2022

      I like this recipe better than the one in ATK's Cookie cookbook. I like the chewy texture a little bit more. The recipe is easy enough that my husband will make these and succeed every time.

  • Buttermilk waffles

    • Shewi128 on March 25, 2021

      Just like their pancake recipe, this is another classic one we've made many times. I don't love whipping the egg whites separately; however, they do turn out well every single time.

  • Overnight yeasted waffles

    • Shewi128 on June 23, 2022

      I love this recipe for the ease of making the batter overnight for less mess and less noise on sunday mornings. It definitely tastes yeasty, and the waffles end up thin and crispy every time.

  • Spiced pumpkin bread

    • Shewi128 on March 25, 2021

      Very good pumpkin and spice balance. I added chocolate chips.

  • Lighter-than-air pancakes

    • Shewi128 on June 23, 2022

      Definitely not worth the extra effort of mixing/whipping egg whites and yolks separately.

  • Classic pancakes

    • Shewi128 on June 23, 2022

      Classic pancake recipe that we've made many many times. No complaints here--although the tip to let the pancake batter wait for 10 minutes after mixing is always helpful.

  • Coffee cake muffins

    • Shewi128 on June 23, 2022

      This technique was interesting to have a bit of the streusel in the middle of the muffin.. Not sure if it made a difference in the enjoyment of the muffin. It's an ok muffin, but nothing memorable.

  • Simple drop biscuits

    • Shewi128 on June 23, 2022

      I make these all the time for a quick biscuit with soups or stews. They are tender, lightly crispy with a nice buttery flavor.

  • The best buttermilk biscuits

    • Shewi128 on June 23, 2022

      These were ok, and I'm not sure if I would have called them the best biscuits I've ever made. They were ok, and I haven't made them again.
