TWD: Kugelhopf (and a Kold)

For your consideration: Rugelach from Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan, pages 61 – 63 featured this week on Tuesdays with Dorrie.

This will be a short and sweet post – I have a head cold (or who the heck knows, it might be wicked allergies) and a major deadline for work – not the most conducive situation for pithy, entertaining blogging. I hope you will please also forgive me for not visiting your fab blogs of late – again, crazy busy, super congested and foggy headed, but I’ll be pouring over every loving detail soon, I promise. For now, let’s just say that Nyquil, Afrin and Kleenex (with Aloe) are my three BFF’s for now. (The way I’m going thru them, here’s an insider tip – buy stock in Kleenex.) Last night I DID manage to take a break and went someplace fun and totally foodie. I’ll share all the juicy details with you soon!

Back to TWD: this Kugelhopf was fairly straight forward, although the prep time was quite long. This is an all day affair or a 2 day-er if you pop it in the fridge overnight. I used a Bundt pan and my Kitchenaid stand mixer. It took forever (forever!) to rise to the top of the pan – I think I gave up at 4 or 5 hours and threw it in the oven and it all turned out swell. I sent it to work with my DH – they gave it rave reviews. Personally, I'm saving my calorie allotment for each day for chocolate, plus raisins in stuff isn’t my favorite.

Thanks to Yolanda of The All-Purpose Girl for choosing this recipe. To see what all the other TWDers did with this recipe, check out the blogroll here. If you'd like to try making Dorie’s version of Kugelhopf for yourself, you can find the recipe on our hostess’s blog, or in Dorie Greenspan's Baking: From My Home to Yours.

  1. It looks like your kugelhopf turned out great! I hope you're feeling better soon. We've been going through the tissues around here too--I'm not sure how many colds we've passed around at this point. And it's only November...
