I served this as a dessert for an impromptu dinner party with some friends - and it was a hit! (Make sure to keep to just a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, though, as the maple flavour is easily overpowered.) Served with strawberries, honeydew melon, sponge cake, and shortbread fingers.

This is excellent! I just made this tonight for a party tomorrow. I bought Challah bread to go along with it and it's sooo yummy. Tastes just like a cinnamon roll.
