Thanks. I have a retarded limon tree in the back yard that produces mass quantities of half lemons, half limes year-round. It makes me sad that so many of them go into the trash!

its better too!
i rarely follow recipes precisely, unless it is a notoriously hard thing to make, like scones. often i don't even use recipes, but throw things together. it's amazing what you can make with stock cubes and various sauces or oils - sesame oil, oyster sauce, soy sauce, golden syrup, any old combination of herbs, onion flakes, and any plant matter you have in the fridge, wine, butter/canola oil, a few spoons of cornflour.. i have a box in the kitchen now to collect recipes and write mine down in. i can never remember to write them as i go and i never, ever measure when i'm *creating*.

For me it depends on what it is. Cakes I'm more likely to make true (or at least trueish) to the recipe because changing the wrong thing can make the whole cake flop. Cookies (aka biscuits some places) I'm much more apt to make changes (for example if I don't have or don't like an ingredient I'll substitute something else or skip it entirely) because they don't seem to flop as easily as cake. I make many cookies entirely by feel/taste with no recipe at all. They always seem to work, even if they do vary a bit each time.

Regular cooking (entrees/side dishes) -- I do that almost entirely by feel/taste.

I discovered this recipe last summer, and I've made it several times since, including today. So-oooo easy, and so good! You pretty much have to start it the night before you want it. As far as actual mixing/handling of the dough, this recipe probably takes less than 5 minutes of time, all the rest is for letting it rise, and baking. I found it on a message board, but I believe it was featured in the NYT a few years ago. The outside of the loaf is crusty, and the inside is dense and chewy, with lots of air holes. Sort of reminds me of French bread. For a bread-making novice like myself, this was an excellent recipe to start with.


No-Knead Bread

Adapted from Jim Lahey, Sullivan Street Bakery
Time: About 1½ hours plus 14 to 20 hours’ rising

The Minimalist: The Secret of Great Bread: Let Time Do the Work (November 8, 2006)


3 cups all-purpose or bread flour, more for dusting
¼ teaspoon instant yeast
1¼ teaspoons salt
Cornmeal or wheat bran as needed.

1. In a large bowl combine flour, yeast and salt. Add 1 5/8 cups water, and stir until blended; dough will be shaggy and sticky. Cover bowl with plastic wrap. Let dough rest at least 12 hours, preferably about 18, at warm room temperature, about 70 degrees.

2. Dough is ready when its surface is dotted with bubbles. Lightly flour a work surface and place dough on it; sprinkle it with a little more flour and fold it over on itself once or twice. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rest about 15 minutes.

3. Using just enough flour to keep dough from sticking to work surface or to your fingers, gently and quickly shape dough into a ball. Generously coat a cotton towel (not terry cloth) with flour, wheat bran or cornmeal; put dough seam side down on towel and dust with more flour, bran or cornmeal. Cover with another cotton towel and let rise for about 2 hours. When it is ready, dough will be more than double in size and will not readily spring back when poked with a finger.

4. At least a half-hour before dough is ready, heat oven to 450 degrees. Put a 6- to 8-quart heavy covered pot (cast iron, enamel, Pyrex or ceramic) in oven as it heats. When dough is ready, carefully remove pot from oven. Slide your hand under towel and turn dough over into pot, seam side up; it may look like a mess, but that is O.K. Shake pan once or twice if dough is unevenly distributed; it will straighten out as it bakes. Cover with lid and bake 30 minutes, then remove lid and bake another 15 to 30 minutes, until loaf is beautifully browned. Cool on a rack.

Yield: One 1½-pound loaf.

arw, help!

I made these cinnamon rolls again on the weekend. It was my 3rd or 4th time. I keep getting requests for them. This time for the first time, I made a full batch instead of a half batch, because I was going to give most of them away.

When I took them out of the oven, I could see that they didn't look the same as the previous times I'd made them. The brown sugar/cinnamon/butter filling didn't get all nice and liquidy and gooey, and there wasn't hardly any leakage in the bottom of the pan, which nicely coats the bottoms of them, and allows me to spoon it out and add to the top of the rolls. After trying one, I could see what the problem was - rather than go gooey, it's like the brown sugar in them didn't really melt, it stayed granulated, sort of having the texture of wet sand.

I decided to try to "rescue" them by heating some margarine, brown sugar and cinnamon in a non-stick pan, hoping it would get to the consistency that I wanted it to. It never did, the sugar stayed granulated, and the wet sand thing happened again.

I've looked online to see what could have gone wrong, but couldn't find anything. I don't expect everything I make to turn out perfectly every time, but I at least like to know where I went wrong so I can avoid it in the future.

The only thing I can see maybe happening is this - the first few times I made them, I had both brown sugar and golden yellow sugar in my cupboard. To me, these are practically interchangeable when a recipe calls for brown sugar, one's just a bit darker than the other, and I've never had a problem with substituting one for the other. I double checked what I used in the bad batch, and it was the yellow sugar. I was completely out of the brown sugar, so I'm thinking that maybe I used that up the other times I made it?

I've googled like crazy to see if I could find an answer to whether or not using the lighter yellow sugar could have been the problem, but all I've found is a description of the various kinds of sugars out there, and I know that brown sugar has a higher molasses content than yellow sugar. Could that be the problem, that it's the higher molasses content that makes it go gooey and delicious when it's heated, which the yellow sugar was lacking?

And would anyone like 10 crappy cinnamon rolls?

From what I know of yellow sugar, it tastes like molasses but it's definitely not the same as brown sugar. Granulated sugar would be a better substitution for brown. Yellow sugar does not melt the same way brown and granulated do. It's used for things like the top coating on creme brule. It melts on brule when you apply a torch to it but otherwise it really isn't a sugar that melts. If it comes in slightly larger pieces, most like it would be called sugar in the raw, it would hold it's shape if you put in on top of your pastry and baked it in the oven. So yeah, I'd definitely say it was the type of sugar you used. Brown sugar is granulated sugar with molasses so granulated would give you a similar gooey effect. It just might not taste the same way. But then again it would give it a more caramelized flavor so you might not miss the molasses in the brown sugar at all.

Does anyone have a lemon cake recipe?? I looked at the sites I usually use and all the "recipes" are boxed white or yellow cake mix with some lemon flavoring added. I am not using a boxed cake mix.

Thanks for the info!

I just want to verify that we're talking about the same thing. I've googled it, and it almost seems that any website I've found that talks about yellow sugar is non-American. What I'm talking about is exactly the same as brown sugar - same texture and everything - it's just lighter in colour.

Here's what I mean, the exact brand and everything:

Tucson Lemon Cake

1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons grated lemon rind
3 eggs

1/4 cup poppy seeds
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Lemon Glaze (recipe follows)


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour 12 cup Bundt pan or tube pan, 10 x 4 inches.

2. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl.

3. Beat together butter, sugar and lemon rind in large mixer bowl on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in flour mixture alternately with buttermilk until well blended. Stir in poppy seeds and lemon juice. Spread in prepared pan.

4. Bake in preheated oven (325 degrees) for 50 to 55 minutes, or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately poke holes in top of cake with long-tined fork. Pour about two-thirds of Lemon Glaze over top. Cool 20 minutes in pan. Invert onto heat-proof plate. Spread with remaining glaze. Cool to room temperature.

Lemon Glaze: Combine 2 cups confectioner's sugar, 1/4 cup melted butter, 2 tablespoons grated lemon rind and 1/4 cup lemon juice in medium bowl. Stir with whisk until smooth.


I also have one for a layer cake and pound cake if you want those.
