MY APOLOGIES FOR SOME OF THE PHOTOS BELOW BEING SO LATE TO POST. THE EMAILS WERE TEMPORARILY LOST AND I JUST FOUND THEM… SORRY!

CHARMAINE (from The Netherlands) MADE MY WHOLE WHEAT BREAD

“I doubled the recipe (except the yeast and salt) and used amounts of whole wheat, white spelt and AP flour as I had available. This was the easiest bread recipe I have ever worked with!  I have been baking bread for the last 10 years. I only use store bought when in a pinch. You can imagine I’ve tried a lot of recipes, over the years. I’d finally settled on a very popular (Allrecipes) recipe. Though the flavor  of that bread is good and it’s full of grains, it’s very time consuming and my results have not been consistent. So, I searched and saw the pic of your bread and, it looked so perfect, I decided to try it. I followed the recipe but added a variety of grains and seeds. This is the best rise I have ever gotten (looks exactly like the picture) and the loaves are so flavorful. The texture is perfect. Absolutely delicious! Needless to say, this is a keeper and will be my recipe of choice, going forward. Thank you for the wonderful, perfect recipe! ~ Charmaine S., The Netherlands.” 🇳🇱

MIL (from Canada) MADE MY LEMON MERINGUE PIE

“Hi Jenny I made your lemon pie on Sunday and boy was it good. So simple and easy to make my family thanks you too. They just loved it. I love anything lemon and the lemon filling was just right. Also I just wanted to thank you for writing such simple recipes that are very easy to follow. I love how you leave a space between ingredients that go together. It makes it so much easier to follow. Thanks for sharing your recipes.  You are a true gem. ~ Mil from Woodbridge.”

SARAH (from West Africa) MADE MY ONE BOWL YELLOW CAKE

“Dear Miss Jones, I wanted to share not only my picture of your One Bowl Yellow Cake, but also the story behind my making it. Since January, I have been in West Africa on a mission trip. I work a good deal in the kitchen and needed a simple cake recipe, preferably without butter, (we don’t have that around much), without a lot of eggs and which wouldn’t change too much if I used another flavor than vanilla (which we don’t have). Your oil cake was perfect. We were wanting a cake with Malibu rum, so I replaced the vanilla with that. I doubled the recipe to make it two layers, but had to do one 8″ and one 9″ layer, since we only had one of each size pan — you get creative in Africa! For the bottom (9”) layer, I placed sliced bananas in the bottom of the pan before I poured in the batter.

They turned out fabulously! Not perfectly shaped (from using parchment paper instead of grease) and one was a little slanted (the oven is gas, so who knows what happened), but they were so light and spongy! (Our baking powder cones in packets here and I wasn’t sure how much was in each one; I put two in the batter, so maybe that’s why they were so light!) The bottom of the 9″ layer turned into the middle of the cake; I brushed the layers with more Malibu and made a flour frosting, again with the Malibu, to cover it, and decorated it with more sliced bananas. I wanted to make a coconut-flavored sugar glaze to drizzle around the edges, but it turned I sugar, so I broke it up and sprinkled it on top. Yesterday, I made it again, this time with strawberry flavoring, strawberry frosting, and chocolate hazelnut spear and caramelized bananas between the layers. Two pictures are attached; thank you for your fabulous recipe, which can even be made in the rainforest! Sincerely, Sarah McDonald.”
What a great story! Thank you for sharing it along with these wonderful photos!  –  jennyJenny Can Cook Yellow CakeEasy Yellow Cake Recipe

VICKI S. MADE MY NO KNEAD CRUSTY ROLLS

“Hi Jenny, Love your recipes and have made several so far!  I have just put your Crusty Rolls in the oven withe ‘Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning’ on them with egg wash. And I’m so excited to try one!!! I’ll include a picture when they’re hot out of the oven.:) Thank you!”
Thank you for this photo. I’ve seen quite a few people use this seasoning on my breads. –  jennyHomemade Crusty Rolls

SHEINAGH MADE MY PACZKI

“I made these today and Oh My! This recipe is excellent. I don’t have a piping bag yet so I sliced the bun 2/3rds through, put strawberry jam inside then a pile of fresh whipped creme. They remained me of the creme buns  of my youth, when I was a child in Australia. I now believe that the Polish bakers must have started the creme bun craze there. Delicious. I will not be needing supper.”
You might want to skip supper tomorrow too! 😀 Wow! They do look amazing! Thank you for the photo. –  jennyJenny Can Cook Paczki

YI LIN (from Malaysia) MADE MY NO KNEAD BREAD

“The first two pictures are the unsuccessful ones. The second two are the good ones. I tried this a few times and got very wet dough and uncooked interiors. Then I changed the water-to-flour ratio to 80% and I got it! Bubbles after the first proof, drier and easier to handle dough, air pockets and dry inside the bread after cooked and cooled completely! I live in Malaysia so the flours I get are of different compositions. The all purpose flour here has very low protein content, about 9% and bread flour is higher. So I mixed the both. I put about 70g all purpose and 290g japanese bread flour with 288 ml water. To improve the bread taste, you can leave the dough longer (4 hours) in room temperature (here is about 32 Celsius). I discovered this coincidentally. Happy that I managed to make a bread from scratch! Thanks! I have enjoyed this bread making challenge. Best regards, Yi Lin.”
Success! You’ve shown people the rewards of perseverance and by sharing your details, you are helping others along the way. Thank you! –  jennyJenny Can Cook BreadBest No Knead Bread Recipe

BERNIE MADE MY HOT DOG BUNS

“Hi, Jenny.  Long time fan.  My wife says I like you better than I like her.  On some days, I must say… well… never mind. I made your hot dog buns this weekend.  I ran out of eggs so didn’t do the egg wash.  They didn’t look as pretty as yours but they were delicious. I used them to make Connecticut (aka “hot”) lobster rolls, which we much prefer to the cold lobster rolls with mayo dressing. Anyway, the rolls were perfect for these!”
I’m calling these “Lobster Dogs.” 😀 It’s good to know these hot dog buns are not just for weenies! –  jenny
