How much raspberry extract should I use? (recipe included)?

How much raspberry extract should I use? (recipe included)? Topic: How much raspberry extract should I use? (recipe included)?

Question: I have never baked w/ raspberry extract before, but the amount this recipe calls for seems like a LOT! (1T in the cake mix, and 2t in the icing.) I read the reviews, and no one said anything about it. I will probably use only half, bake one cupcake & see how that turns out - unless someone has a better idea. http://www.mccormick.com/Recipes/Dessert...

The part of the Frosting that has the tablespoonful is only in the filling, and the rest goes on the rest of the frosting. This seems quite reasonable as the fillings are always stronger flavoured than the rest of the frosting. I would probably add raspberry jam to the filling and make the frosting pinker.

It does seem like a bit much but whenever I try a new recipe I follow it exactly the first time around. If, after you make it, it tastes too strongly of rasberry, cut the amount in half. I'm always suspicious when a company that puts out the extract calls for what seems like an excessive amount, after all they want you to use more so you buy more, but I'd give them the benefit of the doubt and follow the recipe exactly for the first go.

I would suggest mixing together a small portion of the icing to see how that tastes, then go from there according to your opinion on the results. Some extracts can bake out/weaken during the baking process, so the high quantity could be to compensate for any flavor loss.

I don't know a recipe but yum I had one in these days also and it was potent! It's like a sugar cookie with chunks of cheesecake and raspberry but was very smooth and yummy like several of their cookies are. I would are trying a typical sugar cookie recipe however combine in a box of cheesecake immediate pudding combine and a few frozen raspberries that maybe good.

"tsh or thyroid negative" Sorry but MOST doctors DO NOT get this right! You should have been given a copy of your lab results to see for yourself. TSH .93 sounds good BUT: You need testing for thyroid ANTIBODIES as well as TSH. TSH ‘norm’ should be .3 – 3 (w/ most feeling best at < 2) but would not matter if ANTIBODIES are present. Indicative of Hashimoto’s Autoimmune Thyroiditis (cycles between hyper & hypo at start)…main cause of HypOthyroid & is worse (...OR Graves Disease - HypERthyroid). WARNING: Doctors seem not to want to find/treat thyroid disease. You may have to go to more than one doctor before you get the right tests, interpretation, and treatment. Best wishes.
