Inner Chef Twist: 

I make one regular loaf and then I make mini loaves and top with  a streusel topping made of:

⅓ cup all-purpose flour

½ cup white sugar

¼ cup butter, cubed                                                                                      

1 ½ tsp. ground cinnamon

To Make Crumb Topping: Mix together ½ cup sugar, ⅓ cup flour, ¼ cup butter, and 1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon. Mix with fork, and sprinkle over mini breads before baking.
