MOIST and FABULOUS. I made some changes. I adjusted down to 2 cups sugar (divided into 1 cup each), I added 1 tsp salt to coconut layer. Cool cake and slightly cool other layers (gives more control) and I kept out about 1/2 cup of coconut layer (use for something else). slowly add chocolate (stop if it's going to run over for goodness sakes!) decorate edge with "Mounds Bites" Keep refrigerated for easy serving. RICH!!!!
This cake was moist and wonderful!! I had to omit the walnuts and raisins because some in my family don't care for them but the cake was still fabulous! Everyone who tried it raved about it. I served it with homemade cinnamon chip ice cream. I personally feel the nuts and raisins would make it even more exquisite.. But it was still worth 5 stars without them!!
OH MY!! This was fabulous! I used the spiced rum and along with the citrus I added some plum slices. If you desire a less potent Sangria cut the rum in half. The flavor is still wonderful. Freeze orange juice in ice cube trays and add a cube to each individual serving. YUM
Recipe requests started flowing after the first bite!! I used a 14 oz. round of brie, added 1/2 cup pesto and toasted the almonds. The pastry fit perfectly with the larger round of brie. It was impressive in both presentation and flavor. This is a keeper. It looks pretty in a fluted style tart dish.
I made this to accompany a large pork loin roast. It was for a large gathering. I asked for a show of hands, "Who hates sweet potatoes?"..several went up. I asked that they just take a sample of this sweet potato souffle. After dinner I asked again, "Who hates sweet potatoes?"..NO hands went up!! They all loved it! EVERYONE requested the recipe! Great compliment to pork and, of course, turkey.
Fabulous salad. It is sweet so I gave it a little balance with crumbled bacon. It is good with or without the addition of bacon...just be mindful that you don't have too much sweetness in the rest of your meal. The salad will really shine if you avoid total sugar overload. This is a KEEPER!!!!
This is a wonderful recipe for beginners as well as the experienced cook. I put this bird in the oven, went to the movies, came back to a moist succulent turkey. It's that easy. I put butter under the skin of the legs too (in total I use 1 cube for the entire bird). I also add black pepper to the seasoning. Every bite is moist!! You can't go wrong!! Lots of wonderful pan juiced to make gravy with. Superfine flour called "Wondera" by Gold Medal is a must for new cooks. Your gravy will be lump free. Taste your gravy after you have thickened it to see if you need to add anymore salt and pepper. If too salty, just dilute with water and a little more flour...until it tastes good. Easy gravy!
I added about 1 tbsp. of orange rind, upped the vanilla to 1 tbsp., upped salt to 1/2 tsp, and added 1 cup of rough chopped pecans.I used butter in place of margarine. The flavor was incredible. Everyone wants the recipe. Great served with honey sweetened cream cheese with a little orange rind in it...perfect for morning or afternoon tea.
Chop the tomatoes before adding. A little tomato paste also gives it a richer flavor. Make sure to cook down the liquid to a slightly thick consistancy. I tend to agree to serve it the next day if possible...the flavors meld in the sauce. Reheat it covered in the oven. This is a keeper!!
Yep! This is a winner! I tend to like apple cake on the spicy side so I changed the cinnamon to 1 Tbsp. nutmeg to 2 teaspoons and a tad more salt. A friend who dislikes cake ate his piece and battled his wife for hers! I left off icing and dusted cake with powdered sugar (my husband hates frostings)...I'm sure it's fab with it. I made two cakes in three days...that's how good it is!! Thanks for sharing your recipe with us!
I didn't change a thing in the recipe. It was great on it's own. I did, however, melt the carmels in the microwave per the instructions on the back of the bag of Kraft's carmels. EASY! Good hot or cold!! This is a 5 star keeper!! Thanks Hot Pam!!
I doubled the salt and vanilla and cut the flour down to 2 1/4. These were fabulous!! They are "magic" cookies...now you see them, now you don't!! Rave reviews from all who ate them!
