I really enjoyed this recipe. I agree with others that used 3 T. instead of 2 T. of earl gray tea leaves.

For all the people saying this recipe is a rip-off or "plagarism" of Martha Stewart - it is not. I have made the Martha Stewart version in the past, and it tasted pretty bad - not enough sugar (only 1/2 c. vs. this recipe's...

I made this recipe into cupcakes - I got 17 cupcakes, which baked for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Then, I topped the cupcakes with the frosting - used a ziploc bag fitted with a star tip to pipe it on. I only needed 3 drops of yellow food coloring to tint the cream cheese frosting. I really enjoyed these cupcakes - very light and refreshing, not"

Wonderful. I made 3 mini loaves, baked at 35 minutes. I also used 2 blood oranges instead of lemons, and substituted orange extract for the vanilla - turned out awesome. Blood orange juice turned the glaze a lovely pink color. "

I made regular sized chocolate chip cookies with this recipe... ended up baking them 10 minutes on a silicone mat lined baking sheet before removing from the oven. The bread flour and extra egg yolk really made a huge difference in the final texture of the cookie. These reminded me of the fresh baked grade school cafeteria cookies that the cafeteria...

This recipe is amazing. I made a small modification and used half the recommended amount of wine... turned out perfect!

This is the best recipe that I've ever tried! I made it last time with regular Hershey's special dark, but this time I used Ghirardelli 86% (Midnight Reverie)... and it was awesome! The only hard part for me was figuring out exactly where to score the chocolate bar to get exactly 1.0 oz, since the Ghirardelli bar I used was actually 3.17 oz. So,...

Wow. This was the easiest bread I have ever made, and the results were truly professional... like I just came back from a bakery. I weighed the bread flour on my kitchen scale (which ended up being about 3 1/2 cups of bread flour for me.
