Oh my goodness! I can bake, but don't always have the best luck with breads. These came out perfectly! The whole family loved them. The bread is so moist and fluffy. I did add some orange zest to the dough batter, as that's a personal preference for recipes like this. Also, for the filling, I multiplied it by 1.5 and melted the butter and stirred in 1 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar, and 1 tb cinnamon. For the icing, I had leftover cream cheese icing from Christmas, though not enough. So I made this icing, again adding zest and a squeeze of orange and I used heavy cream as I had a little of that left in the fridge to use up. I combined the two icings and it was the best icing I've ever had. To note: I didn't have any trouble with this in my kitchenaid. I did end up with 9 cups flour in it, leaving it just a smidge sticky to rise, as I knew I'd be working in more flour in the next step. Do not overwork the dough. This one's a keeper. I'll be making it every Christmas.
