French Vanilla Cake

"I have made this cake 3 times in the past 4 weeks and have been asked to make it again for St. Paddy's day and Easter! I should have it down to a science by then. It is simply delicious and I have received rave reviews! Thanks so much for posting what I consider to be the perfect vanilla cake recipe."  by Michelle


Ice Cream Recipes

"Being an ice-cream addict I searched the web and tried many recipes. Not wanting those with condensed milk I was able to cut the selection right down. And THEN I found your Homemade Vanilla Ice-Cream. Not having an ice-cream maker I had to use the instructions from other recipes and then added a pinch of salt (apparently that helps with the freezing!?) and 1 heaping Tbs of Custard Powder. I also added another egg yolk. And this is absolutely perfect. I never want to go back to bought ice-cream .... in fact I find it very disappointing. So thanks for your recipe - it is an absolute hit!" by Celia on Home Page
