I have made this recipe twice and both times it was wonderful. I was worried that the batter was runny, but, it always turned out perfectly. On another note: I froze individual slices wrapped in waxed paper, and when thawed, it was as good as the day it was made...quite remarkable!"

I followed exactly and it rose perfectly....however, I could taste the salt (perhaps 1TBS was too much) and it was very dense. I was totally surprised since I followed everything exactly; and a bit bland in taste ( other than too salty). I have baked bread a hundred times and this really was a disappointment. Rarely do Ina's recipes fail my taste...

This was incredible. Followed exactly: even down to putting the breaded chicken in fridge for an hour...it was crispy, moist and just irresistable. It was easy and tasty!"

Followed recipe exactly. Meaat very tender, but the sauce was runny and rather bland. There was no complexity or depth to the sauce."

This was amazing...followed the recipe precisely and it came out picture perfect and tasted like cheddar heaven. It puffed up 4 inches
above the souffle dish...Served with a tossed salad and you are set."

I followed recipe exactly and found that it "imploded" in the middle.
It was tasty but totally disasterous in looks.
