This was great! I make cinnamon buns or raisin bread for our Sunday morning breakfasts and this combined the two. My kids love it. I did cut back on the cinnamon though - more like 3 teaspoons instead of 3 tablespoons. I also didn't do the egg white and sugar thing at the end - enough sugar in the filling for us anyway. Thank you! This bread will become part of our family breakfasts!
Good bread and I will be making again. The kids really liked it. I had gaps from the rolling, however. Perhaps I didn't roll it tight enough. Next time I'll roll tighter and see if that helps. I also put into 2 loaf pans, and gave one away. Looks nice with the sugary crust.
THE BEST!! I put it on the dough setting then pull it roll it thin. i melt the butter and add the cinnamon and sugar. Then smear it an the dough, roll it up and slice it about 1 inch thick. place them on a small cookie sheet, i put extra butter, cin & sugar on the top, let them double and bake! we make these about once a month.
