    Altered ingredient amounts. I made this for some of my friends at work, and it was a big hit. I raised it to a 110ml of chai which made it very moist and lovely. Also, the cream cheese made little cream cheese pockets randomly, which were so delicious! Served with strawberries and coffee, this was really fantastic, so easy and rewarding.  -  14 Jul 2008


    I don't know if I did something wrong here, but I followed the recipe exactly and the bread came out bland and VERY dry...I only baked the bread for 50 min. instead of 60 - and still over done.  -  14 Jul 2008
