Bread Machine Pecan Coconut Coffee Cake

To make this coconut pecan coffee cake, I used the following recipe:

(adapted from Ultimate Bread Machine Cookbook)

1/4 cup warm water
1 extra large egg
3/4 cup plain yogurt
2 tablespoons butter, softened
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 1/2 cups bread flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/4 teaspoons dry yeast

6 tablespoons butter, softened
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
1 egg beaten with 1 teaspoon water for egg wash

1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons warm water

Add all dough ingredients to your bread machine and select “dough” cycle. At the end of the cycle, punch down dough and roll into a 24″ x 8″ rectangle. Spread butter over top of dough. Combine filling ingredients and sprinkle on top of dough.

Roll up tightly, jelly-roll fashion, pinching long seam closed. Form into an oval and pinch ends together. Place on a greased baking pan and cut at 1-inch intervals with a sharp knife, three quarters of the way through. Fan slices open slightly, cover, and let rise 45 minutes – 1 hour.

Brush with egg wash and bake at 375 degrees 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack. Combine icing ingredients and drizzle over cooled cake.

And here are the best possible gifts for coffee lovers.
