AMAZING! This bread is heaven on earth. I have some suggestions, read below! I added a couple of dashes of pumpkin pie spice to the dough, doubled the cinnamon/brown sugar mixture to put inside, and I also added another cup of raisins on top of the cinnamon mixture/rolled out dough. If you don't want the bread to fall apart around the swirls do this: beat up an egg, and before adding the cinnamon/brown sugar mixture to the rolled out dough, brush the dough with the beaten egg. then add brown sugar/cinnamon mixture. Your bread will not fall apart. A few tips: Use FRESH bread flour. If it's been sitting in your cupboards for a while, it'll taste stale and will make a big difference between fresh flour. Use FRESH yeast (check the date!) Check the temperature of your water for the dough. If you don't have a thermometer, just know that the water should be about body temperature. If it's even a few degrees too hot or too cold, it'll effect the texture of the bread. If you've ever felt a warm baby, the water should be about that temperature. Heat up the milk you're adding. If the milk is cold, it'll cool off the warm water, and negatively effect the yeast. Just nuke it for about 15-20 seconds until it's warm. If the milk is too hot, let it sit out for a minute before adding to the water. Don't bake for more than 30 minutes!
