My son Billy whose 27 , very handsome and single happened to be riding by the house when I was outside taking a picture of this. He pulled in the back yard and yelled "mom why are you taking pictures of food?" I went up to the car with a slice of this in my hand , and while he eat it I explained the whole blog thing. After he ate it , which took a whole 2 minutes...maybe, he said "tell everybody on your blog I give it 2 thumbs up! There you go an unbiased testimonial from my son, hee hee!! When my husband had his piece he said the top of it, which is covered in cinnamon and sugar was great! Gotta love the hungry men in my family. So here's the recipe for the 2 thumbs up - great cinnamon bread!
