This was good and I used it to just create cinnamon twists. Once the bread had risen a couple of times, I rolled it out, sliced into strips, brushed with melted butter and covered with sugar/cinnamon mixture (add nuts too if you like). Turned out actually not tasting that sweet which was a surprise but we still enjoyed it especially as a late morning snack with a hot beverage. They kept very well in a container and warmed up easily in the microwave.
