Reviewed Sour Cream Pound Cake

Jul 28, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This recipe turned out perfect. Dense, moist, perfect crumb/texture for a pound cake. I normally follow baking recipes exactly the first time before I try adjusting anything. Except, I didn't have any sour cream (but I had a lot of fresh summer berries that I knew would go great with pound cake, so I had to make this.) Instead of sour cream I subs"

This is a GREAT chocolate cream pie recipe! I'm not usually a fan of choc cream pie but my husband likes it so I tried making this one...I am a convert! I think the buttermilk is a key ingredient and adds a perfect amount of zing. Like some of the other reviewers, I also used more chocolate (about 6 oz vs. 4), and folded in double the whipped crea"

Jun 23, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This is a very versatile recipe; you can really use any combination of items that you like for the fruit filling. I didn't have any rhubarb so I substituted a cup of blackberries just for more berry goodness. I used pear-cinnamon balsamic (found at Figone's olive oil in Kenwood CA - you can also order it online from their web site) - yum! Also add"

The rice is a little sweet as others have said, but it is delicious! If I make it again, I would use a little less sweetened cream of coconut and a little more bell pepper."

Mar 6, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This is absolutely the BEST homemade from scratch cake that I've ever made! Was a little hard to find sweetened cream of coconut, but I found it at Whole Foods. The only slight modification I made to the recipe was to use vanilla sugar, and replaced half of the vanilla extract with coconut extract just for a little extra punch of coconut flavor. E"

This turned out to be delicious and a good way to use up leftover ham! Great for breakfast, snack or side with dinner. Followed the recipe exactly except I didn't make the doesn't need it!"

Yes, I agree with previous review...15-20 min is way too long! I think 10-12 minutes is long enough. These are tasty, but keep an eye on 'em in the oven and trust your gut - take 'em out sooner than this recipe indicates!"

Update: third time's a charm I guess. I followed this recipe again. The only thing I did different this time is I mixed the zablione (sp?) into the mascarpone mixture just a little at a time until it was all incorporated. The only thing I can figure why it didn't work the other 2 times is that the egg mixture was still too warm when I added the ma"

Somebody please help! I just made this and it turned out just like the previous reviewer...the filling separated, but not until after adding the mascarpone! The egg mixture turned out perfect, smooth with a nice ribbon. I followed this recipe exactly...TWICE...and it happened both times, I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. It sounds like a wonder"

This turned out perfect! I was a little worried by the other reviewers who said theirs turned out runny. I followed the recipe and cooking times exactly and it turned out picture perfect and delicious. Next time might try toffee bits on top instead of candy cane.""
