Rebanadas de Mantequilla

This bread reminds me of cinnamon and sugar toast. Anyone else remember that from their childhood? Pop bread slices in the toaster, spread some butter. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top, easy. Now, this isn’t they type of bread you can easily pop in a toaster. The slices are thick, the center is soft, and the outer crust is toasty. The buttercream spreads easily on the warm bread. I personally think it’s best to eat on the same day you make it. This one loaf is big enough for a small crowd to share. So, make sure you have plenty of hungry people around you.

Milk should be no hotter than 110 degrees F. It will kill the yeast. 
Yeast should look foamy when activated. If not, the milk is too hot, or the yeast is not good.
