Re:Blueberry Muffins

These are some of the best blueberry muffins I have had! My only substitution is to use vegetable oil instead of butter, which keeps the muffins moist longer.

Re:Vanilla Bean–Mayonnaise Cupcakes with Chocolate Icing

The concept of this cake appealed to me very much since by using mayo you don't have to wait for butter or eggs to come to temperature. The problem is that vanilla is too delicate of a flavor to mask the intensity of the mayo. In addition to infusing the vanilla bean into the milk I also added about 2 tsp of vanilla extract to the batter but I could still taste the tang of the mayo. The texture of the cake was great - the cupcakes came out very moist and baked beautifully, but I just could not get over the mayo flavor.

Re:Lemon Pudding Cakes

This was ok. The texture of the pudding cake is something between souffle and cheesecake. Granted I may have baked it a couple of minutes longer. The lemon flavor was spot on! We did cool the cakes in the refrigerator as recommended but I am wondering if maybe warm they would have been better. I have only tried one more pudding cake recipe before this one and it was completely different. The recipe from Joy of baking produces a lemon pudding cake that is more cake on the top and pudding in the bottom, but it is way too sour and lemony. I probably will not make this again but it is worth trying out if you are curious about pudding cakes and if the cheesecake/souffle texture is of your liking.

Re:Boston Cream Pie

This is by far one of the better Boston Cream Pie recipes! The cake is incredibly light and the pudding although thick is silky smooth and just melts in your mouth. The rum in the simple syrup was a little overpowering for my taste - and I would add a little corn syrup to the chocolate ganache to make it just a bit chewy, but honestly these are just personal touches. Try the recipe as is the first time you make it - You will not be disappointed.
