Kugelhopf

 

K ugelhopf, a raisin filled part bread part cake has been on my to-do list for a long, long time.  So, when I was presented with a Kugelhopf  bundt pan, a gift from my niece who hails from Aloha land, I wasted no time in making this.  Kugelhoph is best eaten on the day it's made.  Any leftovers are best lighlty toasted ~ laced with a bit of butter and jam.












This piece of Kugelhoph, fresh from the oven, tasted so good, more so with a cup of hot fragrant tea!

Recipe for Kugelhoph

Ingredients

  • 1.1/2  tsp dried yeast
  • 2 Tbsp warm water
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 oz butter
  • 3 oz sugar
  • 15 oz plain flour
  • 1  tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 8 oz raisin, roughly chopped (used 4 oz. only)
  • 2  tsp grated orange/lemon rind
  • 2 oz slivered almonds
Method 
  1. In a bowl, stir together yeast and warm water, let stand for 5 - 10 mins., till foamy.
  2. Combine milk, butter and sugar, heat over medium heat, stirring till butter has melted and sugar dissolved.
  3. Using a dough hook combine flour and salt, stir in the yeast mixture, gradually add in milk mixture and beat at low speed.
  4. Increase speed to medium and add eggs one at a time.
  5. Stir in raisins and orange zest.
  6. Spoon dough into lightly greased bundt pan with slivered almonds at the base.  The dough is a bit sticky at this juncture.
  7. Cover the pan with a damp cloth, let rise in a warm place for 1.1/2  hours or till double in size.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven @ 190 deg C for 30 to 35 mins.
  9. Remove from oven and cool in pan for 5 mins.  Invert onto cooling rack and cool completely.
  10. Dust on icing sugar for decoration.

    Texture is somewhat different from just normal bread. Cross between bread and cake and yes the orange zest does add more flavour.

    It's a yeast risen cake said to have originated from Austria and some say from Germany.

Biscoff Butter Cake ~ 牛油蛋糕

The recipe for this Biscoff Butter Cake is similar to my earlier post of Marble Butter Cake, just that I added an extra ingredient which is, crushed Biscoff cookies.    Instead of mixing the crushed cookies into the batter, I just sprinkled them on top of the first layer of batter and then cover with the remaining batter.   This cake is soft and moist with good texture ..... definitely a recipe for keeps!

Salted egg yolk cookies ~ 咸蛋黄酥饼 ~ CNY 2016

Salted egg yolk recipes are getting very popular these days.  There are salted egg yolk with crabs, salted egg yolk with chicken, salted egg yolk with bittergourd and salted egg yolk bun, just to name a few.  Being the inquisitive me, I tried baking the salted egg yolk cookies just to taste what's it like.   It's quite difficult to describe the taste, it's neither totally sweet nor totally savoury, it's a blend of both which makes it unique, yet delicious.


I like the small bits of salted egg yolk in the dough.  I let the dough rest in the refrigerator for more than 2 hours and it was more pliable to handle.
