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!
