  1. 5 plus stars !! I found I did not have enough apple so added a cup of carrot to get the correct fruit quota and this was a delicious moist loaf, addictive when warm with butter. I left out the cranberries as I only had tinned and thought the juice would affect cake. The spices were a marvellous addition and could be smelled throughout the house !! Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag.
  2. I love the flavor of this cake...delicious! I will definitely be making this again!
  3. I thought I'd done something wrong at first. It made a really stiff, dry dough which I wasn't expecting. I liked the easy ingredients like the shredded apples ( I just cored them & put them in the food processor) It was definately a moist loaf as stated (more so than I care for generally speaking) However, toasted with butter it was really great. The flavors were mild and not too sweet. Easy and very good overall.
  4. This is a very nice coffee cake. And the best part, it is low fat! The only change I made was using 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup Splenda, for dietary reasons. I might add some orange zest next time, for added orange flavor. Dried cherries would be nice also, or raisins. One suggestion: Mix the vanilla in with the other wet ingredients. It is a little hard to mix in later without over mixing. I served this with a dollop of non-fat, sugar free vanilla yogurt. Thanks for this keeper!
  5. Just comments from this humbled baker - In spite of trying all that I knew, I could not get this cake to cook through. I thought I followed the recipe to a T but after 1 hour and 45 minutes,(tented the last 30 minutes) the center was still raw. I then de-panned it, cut it into quarters and baked another 15 minutes. Still not done. I obviously over-measured some liquid as I am positive that I used the right amount of flour. I was truly hacked off at myself– the smell as it baked was DIVINE and the outside pieces that _were_ done tasted wonderful – the cloves and orange are a great combo. I’ll try this one again when Baking Therapy is over and I have my self-esteem back . :-)


<p>First, I'd like thank everyone who reviews my recipes. I can't thank each of you personally although I try. <br /><br />I Live in central Virginia, 5 miles from where I grew up, w/ my Husband of 17 years and my beautiful daughter. She is 10 and is the joy of my life. We waited for a long time to be blessed with a child and it is the best thing I've ever done. Be a mother. <br /><br />I love to cook. We eat very healthy, after a life altering experience at 31 I've been on a journey to be healthy and lose weight.&nbsp; I've lost 50 lbs and have kept most all of it off for the last 9 years. There are always fluxs, durring stressful times, but I've mananged to keep most of the weight off.&nbsp; My best advice to anyone trying to lose weight is to remember that it didn't get there overnight and it won't come off overnight. I've never said I was on a diet. It is a lifestyle.</p> <p>When Zaar first changed to Food I took a short hiatus. I was going thru a very hard time in life and was completely unmotivated to do anything and thus gave up my hosting duties on Holiday Tag.&nbsp; But now with a new perspective I'm hoping to get back to cooking and tagging.</p> <p><br /><br />Things I've participated in..... <br /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /><img src=/ alt= /><img src= border=0 alt=PAC /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><br />And in honor of my mother and in rememberence of my sister in law. <br /><img src= alt=/ /></p>
