*coughcoughcough* So I'm starting to write this review while the gorilla bread still has 15 minutes left to bake... MY APARTMENT IS BATHED IN SMOKE! From what I can tell the syrup is disagreeing with being baked! It hasn't fallen over the side or anything, it's literally smoking RIGHT IN THE PAN. Maybe I should have known better (?) but I've never made anything that baked with syrup. It eventually stopped smoking (about 35 minutes into the baking, ack!) but geeze, a little warning would have been nice!
It was really easy to construct together. I used a home-made dough instead of store bought (couldn't find any, and I was making regular loaves anyway, so I just snagged some of that dough). The cinnammon sugar didn't really want to stick on the dough, but I just sprinkled some on once I had a layer down to make sure it wasn't lacking. The syrup was pretty easy to make. I eventually had to bake it a lot longer (past 45 minutes; I stopped keeping track). This might have been the dough I was using, though.
Now that it's all done, it LOOKS delicious. The negative stars are mostly due to smoke. I'll update tomorrow after my family tries it and I know if it was any good!
