TWD: Kugelhopf


Two weeks in a row we have had weird names for the TWD picks. Last weeks Rugelach was delicious and will definately be made again. This weeks Kugelhopf was tasty, but more than likely I will not be making it again.

Kugelhopf is half cake/half bread stuffed with raisins that is brushed with butter and sprinkled with sugar right out of the oven. There are special Kugelhopf tins available or you could just use a Bundt pan to bake it.

I didn't want to buy a special tin to make this since I already have a Bundt pan. But, I found a cute silicone mini Kugelhopf pan on EBay and couldn't resist. I cut the recipe in half and made six minis. I think I filled the molds too much, though, since my end result suffered from a very large muffin top! I added cinnamon chips to the dough along with the raisins to add some extra flavor.

I did enjoy the Kugelhopf and I thought the cinnamon chips were fantastic in it. I probably won't make it again not because it wasn't good, but more so because there are too many other recipes that I want to try!

Thanks to Yolanda of The All-Purpose Girl for this weeks selection. Head over to her blog for the recipe and, as always, check out the TWD blogroll!

Good morning! I used cinnamon chips too and loved it. We are thinking alike, I won't make it again either. There are way to many recipes out there to try! Im glad I made it but boy was it a long process!

I love your little Kugels. Cinnamon chips sounds like a wonderful addition, maybe added a little more sweetness?

Hey Cristine! I know I should have a comment about your food, and it looks delicious. Very German sounding. But I just wanted to say Happy Veteran's Day! I'm thankful for women like you and Monica who are so brave to stand beside your men.

Cinnamon chips were an excellent addition. This is one instance where the muffin top is a good thing!

I agree, though, I won't make this again.

I love the minis! Great idea on the cinnamon chips, too! Looks beautiful!

The minis are absolutely precious. I'll be making this again because my husband adored it. A silicone pan might be the way to go.

I love the mini kugelhopfs! If I make this again I will have to try it with the cinnamon chips!

Cinnamon chips? They exist? Dang, I better start looking out for those and stocking up! Yours look superstar good. I was sick and decided to make banana cake instead (less complicated). But I enjoyed looking at your kugelhopfs, whatever it's called. Keep up the good work. I am checking in again next week :)
