I'm a relatively new member of the Board and enjoy the daily email traffic. I have both CMDs and am working my way through all the recipes. Before I try a new recipe, I always check to see what other people have said about it.
I usually take my baked goods to my office and I have many volunteer "taste testers!" I live in sunny Honolulu and work for the military. I usually bake late at night, after my child goes to bed, or very early before work. Today I made my "new" favorite cake - the Banana Split Cake
- and it was a huge success. I did doctor it up a little by increasing the mashed bananas from 1 cup to 1 1/2 cups. It was very moist and even my picky friends who don't like bananas loved it!
The first cake I tried from CMD was the Amazing German Chocolate Cake
and then the popular variation, the Praline Cake
. I alway have GC cake mix and frosting on hand - just in case I have to whip up a cake. Other favorites are the Darn Good Chocolate Cake, Marcia's Toffee Poke Cake and the Chocolate Pumpkin Cake with Cinnamon Chips with the luscious cream cheese frosting
! Oh yum! My other favorite is the Amazing Brownie
recipe that was recently posted. Great!
My co-workers are so happy that I bring them weekly goodies - except they have to exercise more!
Aloha and Happy Baking!
