Brown Sweet Molasses Bread (ala Cheesecake Factory)

Seriously folks, why do people go to the Cheesecake Factory? For me, the only reason is for the brown sweet bread! I mean, the food isn’t bad, but it isn’t all that special either. BUT THE BROWN BREAD IS! So, here’s a recipe for that, so that we don’t have to go to Cheesecake Factory for bread anymore! There’s really nothing better than warm bread and butter on the table, so you might as well make it for yourself, and have lots of it!
