These were great, and really easy if you use frozen bread loaf from the groccery store. I read other reviews before I started, and used the following hints: mix the butter and cinnamon/sugar to make a spread. It gets pretty soft, and I cut them thin (store loaf makes 9 thin, not 12 huge), so I used a spatula to transfer them to the pan. I planned to flip them onto a sheet pan after they cooked, so I used the hint to put a thin layer of melted butter in the bottom of the pan and then greased the sides. Grease the corners WELL - that's the only place they stuck once flipped. Let the pan sit on top to let all of the goo run for a few minutes! I let mine rise in a pre-warmed, shut OFF oven (200 degrees) oven with the pan of water, and it still took an hour. I also lowered the cooking temp. to 350 and added 5+ min. so they weren't as 'crusty'. For the frosting, I used 1/2 cup less confectioners sugar, as I am not a frosting person, and it was nice and cream-cheesy, not as sweet. I put a little on top of each, and then set out the rest so people could frost them to suit their own taste. The changes I followed only affected the cooking/presentation, not the flavor, and these were truely awsome. If you skip the dough-making, these are SUPER easy, with BIG, BIG taste for surprisingly little effort! Thanks for the great recipe - my mom is already planning the next batch for Easter Brunch!!
