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.

  • Shortbread

    • KBHughes on February 10, 2019

      The texture is 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 ;-)

  • Spiced pumpkin bread

    • Shewi128 on March 25, 2021

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