This is an excellent recipe with a few adjustments. As several reviewers have suggested, add approx 1/2 to 1 tsp of cinnamon to the dough itself. Also, you will probably end up using slightly more flour. I used 3+ cups bread flour and 1 cup of white whole wheat flour to give it a bit more heartiness. I used a filling mixture of 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1.5 TBSP of cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg and 1/4 tsp ground cloves and the flavor was excellent but I found I had a lot left, so the proportions are good but it gives you more than enough. Instead of using butter to brush on before the filling, beat 1 whole egg with 1 TBSP water and brush that on, then use the remainder on the top crust before baking and you will have a nice shiny loaf. Lastly, I found the 9x5 loaves to be somewhat small, so next time I will probably increase the dough amount by 50%.
