I made the recipe exactly to specifications, using Sunmaid Raisin Cinnamon Swirl bread, with the exception that I topped it with turbinado sugar. Unfortunately, it was really awful. The texture was terribly mushy, I think, in part, because of the filling. It also had a bad aftertaste, possibly due to the egg substitute?? The outer edges seemed less distasteful because they were somewhat firmer. Might be better using a firmer/older bread, and possibly eliminating the filling. It also definitely needs something sweet as a topper - the turbinado sugar did add much needed sweetness and crunch. I would not make this again.
