"This is the best biscuit I've ever tasted. It is extremely tender and light inside, and has a wonderful flavor. I didn't have a biscuit cutter, so used a coffee cup that was about 3" and it was the perfect size. The recipe says to bake them at 450 but Alton said in the show to bake them at 400, so I used a 400 degree oven and it was perfect. I""
"This cake is extremely tender and has a wonderful flavor. I made cupcakes and they turned out perfectly. The recipe makes 24 cupcakes, and I baked them for about 20 minutes. Every oven is different, so you may have to watch them and not depend on timing to determine when they are done. For cupcakes, I only made 3/4 of the frosting recipe. Tha""
"To Lee Vitello--in case you are not very familiar with cooking---if you look at this recipe you'll notice that it does not call for any sugar. Why might this be?? It is a dessert after all!! Perhaps because it DOES call for sweetened condensed milk which has sugar in it. Without the sweet condensed milk it's nothing more than a dish of savory rice. I've actually TRIED this recipe, unlike yourself, and it is absolutely perfect. "
"I just made this bread for my husband who loves banana bread, and it is by far the best we've ever eaten. It's extremely moist and flavorful. I only made half of the recipe and put it in a smaller loaf pan, and it came out just perfect. Be sure to make the honey butter as it adds a wonderful flavor."
"This is an excellent recipe. The flavors are wonderful, and the cake is very moist and rich tasting. The cake must be COMPLETELY cooled before frosting and the "mousse" is not supposed to be thick like typical frostings. The only thing I had to do differently is bake it for about 45 minutes rather than the 25 as the recipe says. I used a 9" round cake pan and put the pan in the middle of the oven and it turned out perfectly. This is the best cake I've ever had.
"This is an excellent cake. It's the perfect texture and flavor for a pineapple upside down cake. I have also used the cake recipe to make a white cake, and it's excellent also. The texture is more dense than tradititonal white cakes which I like. If making just a white cake, the amount of batter is perfect for two 9" cake pans. If making a pineapple cake, you may have a bit of batter left over. Don't fill the pans to the very top or it will run over.
"This is a wonderful recipe. Putting more bread into the recipe will turn this into a dry lump of bread when baked--don't do it. This turns out moist with a custard flavor. This isn't supposed to be dry like french toast. Desserts are often sweet, and so is this one. If you don't like sweet---simply don't make this recipe.
