Just made this recipe, half-batch. I added a little more BP and BS, just to bump up the volume a bit, and skipped the topping entirely. I'm afraid I'll never make another batch of BB as good as long as I live. It was perfect, absolutely perfect. Moist, dense, flavourful: Perfect. Thanks for the recipe. I'll be trying it again, as soon as possible.
