I made this bread by hand. I omitted the white sugar and added 3 T honey. I used all milk, light brown sugar and all purpose flour. To knead the dough I had to add an additional 1/2 cup of flour because it was too sticky. Make sure you grease the bread pan very well before putting it in the oven! Husband LOVED it :) Also make sure you get some because it won't last long!

YUMMY! I went ahead and just baked it in the bread machine because, well, I am lazy :D I did make a few changes, but they weren't major. I only had light brown sugar, so I used that instead of dark (though I do want to try it with the dark at some point!). I used unsweetened applesauce instead of the oil. My vanilla extract is a double-strength one, but I still used the full 1.5 teaspoons. I had fresh ground coriander from last year's garden, so that was really nice. It smelled DIVINE as it was baking! I used bread flour, and while it was kneading, it seemed a bit on the sticky side, so I threw in a little bit of whole wheat flour (probably about 1/8 cup at most). GREAT texture, very slightly chewy (in a good way), rose and baked up nicely in the machine. We had it toasted for breakfast this morning. Will definitely be making this again, and will try it with dark brown sugar!

I took the submitter's advice and used all milk and used AP flour. I made this by hand with my Kitchen Aid mixer. I proofed the yeast in my mixer bowl with the warmed milk and sugars for ten minutes until it "bloomed", added the remaining wet ingredients, then all the dry. I kneaded the dough with my hook for about five minutes, then set it to rise in a covered, greased bowl on my warm oven for about an hour. Once it doubled, I formed it into a loaf and let it double again in a covered, greased loaf pan on my warm oven. Thirty minutes in a 350* oven and we were good to go. I made myself wait until the next morning and I made french toast with it. OFF THE HOOK. We used the Absolute Best Pancake Syrup over the top of it and it really sang. Super easy bread and way flavorful. Not difficult to make at all. I'd really like to try this with whole wheat flour and see how it is.....maybe even a cinnamon swirl in the middle?
