Not a Coffee Cake Dessert Coffee Cake

This was a total disaster. The yeast didn’t work. Don’t try this at home. I’m only posting this so I can remember how not to make a sweet bread.

1/2 cup luke warm very strong coffee

1/2 cup orange juice with extra pulp

2.25 cups brown sugar

2.5 cups bread flour

.75 cup oil

.5 cup raw sugar

1 tbsp instant yeast

2 tsp salt

1.5 tsp pumpkin spice

1 tsp cinnamon

3 tbsp heavy cream powder

2 eggs

caramel bits

This was vaguely based on this recipe. It seems crazy to have that much oil AND butter. I left out the butter but maybe shouldn’t have. I just kind of mixed all the ingredients together except the flour, salt and yeast, which I put on top. I tried to give it a few minutes to let the orange juice and eggs warm up but I got impatient. I set it to regular soft bead mostly to reduce the number of variables.
