This was such a great recipe! Thank you so much for sharing! I made it with our two kiddos today. I added a bit of cinnamon and ginger, and glazed the bread with a thin powdered sugar and milk glaze. The kids LOVED it, and tomorrow morning we'll have the leftovers for breakfast! Thank you so much, Sabbat recipes are so cool!:)
