I'm sorry - but I tried this recipe last night - very excited because I THOUGHT it sounded like my moms recipe from years ago which I lost! Well sadly it did not even come close! I have used may recipies from tis site to make wonderful dishes from appetizers to desserts - all successfully! This is a fiasco - not only did the THICK batter resemble cookie dough and taste like wallpaper paste but I also burned out my electic mixer... I am VERY dissapointed. I am sorry - truly. P.S. Could there be an error on the recipe ingredients? If so - that could explain why mine was so terrible! (I followed directions and measured accurately!) Read More

This was the worst recipe I have ever gotten off of the website. I had to quick come up with something for a funeral dinner so I thought I would make this because it was quick and sounded like it would be good. I couldn't even serve it. I don't know if there was ingrediants that were left out of this printing or what but I will never make this again. Read More

Despite the mixed reviews I decided to try out this recipe. I tweaked it a bit and ended up with a chocolate chip cake/bread loaf. I did 1/2 cup melted butter 1/2 cup oil 2 1/2 cups flour 4 eggs sugar and some vanilla. I mixed it all in my stand mixer and added milk to reach a cake batter texture. I also folded in chocolate chips. I baked it in a loaf pan. It came out dense and the cake part was a little bland. All in all it was OK a little dry. Maybe good if served with pudding custard or fruit sauce. Would only make again if in a really tight pinch. Read More
