My daughter said the bread was a bit thick as she prefer more cinnamon filling. If case you prefer more filling. you can roll the bread dough bigger size then increase cinnamon filling .

Hello Sonia,

I love your recipes and guides which inspires my own bakes at home for the kids and family.

May I ask if there is any possibility to make the dough without the egg. I experienced that bread dough with egg tends to be a little firmer and hard compared to bread dough without egg.

Much appreciate any advise or tippers from you.

Kevin, you are right , bread dough with egg turn dry very fast . You can remove egg and replace with water or milk , and adjust the amount accordingly
