Cinnamon Bites.

I love cinnamon. I love the smell. I even love it when it combines with bread. I tried making this quite some time ago. It's soft and fluffy. But i think I added abit too much sugar and it's a tad sweet.. But I still think it's nice :) For making bread I don't recommend adding more flour or water. Because when I use the method from Richard Bertinet's bread kneading method, he mentioned that the hydration level is quite high so usually I will just follow the recipe and will not add any more flour.

Cinnamon Bites
