Bavarian Sugar Coffeecake


Dough:
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup water
1 egg
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons active dry yeast

Glaze:
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup heavy cream

Place all of the dough ingredients into the pan of your bread machine, program the machine for the dough or manual cycle, and press start.

When the machine has completed its cycle, remove the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface. Press the dough into a greased 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan, using your fingers, stretch it to cover the bottom of the pan. Cover the pan with plastic wrap, and allow the dough to rise until it's doubled in bulk, 30 to 45 minutes. With two fingers, punch deep holes all over the dough.

In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle it over the dough. Drizzle the cream evenly on top. Bake the cake in a preheated 350*F (175*C) oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove the cake from the oven, and serve it warm from the pan. Makes 12 servings.
