A Tasty, Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Bread Recipe

2 c flour
1 package yeast
2 T cinnamon
1/2 - 1 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground coriander

Sift together & set aside.

2 1/4 c milk
2 1/2 T butter
2 tsp salt
8 T brown sugar

Heat in pot until butter begins to melt. Pour into flour mixture and blend well. Add flour until it's too thick for the hand mixer. Turn out onto floured surface and knead (adding flour as you do) until smooth. Place in greased mixing bowl and let rise in a warm spot until double (usually about an hour). Punch down and turn out onto floured surface. Divide in two. Pat each flat. Prepare a butter and sugar mix (I used a whole stick of butter and about 1/2-3/4 c brown sugar, adding some cinnamon and cloves, but use only how much you like. Cinnamon and cloves are optional) and spread onto flattened dough. Roll into loaf shape and place in pan. let rise once more until double (one hour). Bake at 375* for 30 minutes or until done.

I based this off a white bread recipe from Better Homes and Gardens cook book (original edition) and altered it. If anyone has any tips or ideas to improve it, please let me know! :)
