DIRECTIONS
- Place all the ingredients in the pan according to the order in the manufacturer's instructions.

Immediately turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface; pat into an 8-by-12-inch fat rectangle. Brush with the melted butter. Sprinkle with the sugar and cinnamon, leaving a 1-inch space all the way around the edge. Starting at the short edge, rollthe dough up jelly-roll fashion. Tuck the ends under and pinch the bottom seam. Coat the bottom of the dough with cooking spray, in the pan; press Start to continue to rise and bake as programmed. When the baking cycle ends, immediately remove the bread from the pan.
- TO BAKE IN OVEN: Preheat the oven to 350 degreee F. Grease a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan (for 1 1/2 pounds dough) or two 7-by-4-inch loaf pans (for 2 pounds dough). When the machine beeps at the end of the cycle, remove the pan and turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Pat the 1 1/2 pounds dough, or the 2 pounds dough into two 8-by-12-inch rectangles. Brush the rectangles(s) with melted butter. Sprinkle with the brown sugar and cinnamon, leaving a 1-inch edge all the way around. Starting at a short end, roll up jelly-roll fashion. Tuck the ends under and pinch the bottom seam.
- Place the bread on a rack and let cool to room temperature before slicing. Dust with plain or vanilla confectioner' sugar, if desired.
