I think the dough is a bit oily, and not much taste after bake if without the cin/sugar/nut/butter topping. Rounded the dough into 16 rounds. I use abt .5 oz of butter just to brush the rounds, and then sprinkle the cin/sugar (didn't use all the amount in recipe). Baked mine in 9" round cake pan for 47min (just until the top browns). The bread came out hard the next day though
