1 cup soy milk unsweetened organic or one cup regular milk heated 205 degrees

and in it put 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar

2 teaspoons of salt

3/4 cup of warm water

3 small squares DON GUSTAVO Chocolate Cinnamon, chopped and added to the cinnamon, brown sugar filling in the bread.

Heat in your microwave until it’s about a hundred and five degrees and then let cool slightly.

Mix 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
in 1/4 cup of warm water and add
5- 3/4 cups of unbleached all-purpose flour

After incorporating all the wet ingredients into the dry add the 1/4 cup egg substitute to the dough or 1 egg.

1/4 cup egg substitute for 1 egg beaten

Very simply, all you do is just heat up the wet ingredients, including the granulated sugar and salt in the liquid in a microwave proof bowl or a 4 cup Pyrex measuring cup, heat until it reaches 105 degrees.

Mix all of the wet ingredients together with your Kitchen Aid mixer and the dough hook, or in a large bowl with a very sturdy wooden spoon or stainless steel spoon.

The batter is really thick and I would recommend a KitchenAid mixer or other professional quality mixer to mix this.

The bread just about makes itself when you use it, with a little supervision from you and making sure that the dry ingredients are incorporated into the web, using a spatula.

Knead with a dough hook for 10 minutes.

Let the dough rise in a greased bowl for an hour come away from all drafts covered with a clean cotton kitchen towel, bring a container that’s been greased it’s made for Rising bread.

After the hours up Jet Li lower the Risen dough onto a lightly floured surface and punch down the air out of the dough to remove gas bubbles.

Form the dough into a long rectangular piece and sprinkle with ground cinnamon in a little bit of powdered sugar in one third cup of brown sugar.

Sprinkle the chopped 3 squares Gustavo-Mexican Chocolate, over the cinnamon sugar. You can also omit it entirely.

Press in the cinnamon, brown sugar sugar, the Mexican chocolate & then roll up long ways and press to seal on the other end.

Divide the dough log into 3 sections.

Divide each of the 3 sections into 6 additional slices. I cut mine with a very sharp pizza cutter. Arrange the dough slices in a flower formation in each of the three greased round pans.

Sprinkle some more brown sugar cinnamon on the top of each of the flower shape loaves.

Let rise an additional 45 minutes.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 25 minutes, and I should be done perfectly by then if your oven is preheated.

Enjoy these and give away two of them, or have a huge Fiesta and invite a lot of people!
