This is like a fancy version of cinnamon toast! It's REALLY good. We enjoyed it with Irish Soda Bread but it would be good on just about anything... waffles, pancakes, English muffins, toast, cornbread, etc. Super versatile and a HUGE hit with the kids. I had a package of golden raisins with dried cranberries and cherries and I minced up those in place of the sultanas.
