This really wasn't difficult at all. I've been getting better about bread making, which only makes my self-esteem soar.
I used my Kitchen Aid mixer for the whole thing. I proofed the yeast in the mixing bowl with the sugar and warm water for ten minutes, then added all the wet ingredients and blended until well-combined. Then, I added the dry ingredients. I had to add a tablespoon of oil to the mixer in order to get the dough to pull together and pull away from the bowl. I ended up using the tailend of the brown sugar I had on hand in place of the white sugar, and just blended in ground cinnamon. After rolling the dough up and placing it in the pan, I took the remainder of the melted butter and brushed the tops of the loaves. After that, it was just waiting for the bread to rise and then baking.
I plan on using the loaves over this weekend, one as recipe states with the icing and another for french toast.
For those of you who don't have a bread maker, YOU DON'T NEED ONE. Use your Kitchen Aid mixer! It's really simple.
EDITED TO ADD: I made this recipe for the third time today and it seems to get easier each time I make it. This makes GREAT french toast, even some of my friends who made this recipe after I raved about it used it for french toast, too. My kids always eat seconds of this bread, however I make it!
