This smelled so wonderful. It's unmistakeable. The bread part was soft and not sweet, spot on. I ran into a little bit of trouble with the topping. Preparation was no problem but it was a little too crunchy and sweet. In mexican bakeries the topping is more powdery and less sweet. Next time I think I'll make with with 1/2 c sugar and 1 1/4 c flour. I'll update after I make that one. Also, that much cinnamon seemed out of place unless that's the flavor you were looking for. To make a more plain version I used 1/4 tsp of cinnamon in the dough and I used none in the topping and opted for 2 tsp of mexican vanilla instead. Used 6 drops red food coloring. Overall, good recipe!
