HOW TO GET A PERFECT SWIRL
To make sure that you get a gorgeous swirl, you need to roll the dough pretty tightly. The tighter the roll, the swirlier the bread will be!
You can make this bread the night before! Just assemble the bread & let it slow-rise in the fridge overnight. Add streusel & bake in the morning!
