I am always trying and baking something new & different, and the ladies I live with gave this one the BIG thumbs up! Personally, everything about these Brotchen were perfect! I have never had one batch go within minutes! I did make one change to the recipe - I used brandy instead of rum, only as was in my cupboard! These are really easy to make & taste great! Have fun! I definitely recommend this recipe!
