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.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try.

'Steamed Tofu' ~ Beancurd is always a hot favourite with my family whenever we eat out ...... nutritious and for easy digestion especially with oldies around.  For more information on  'Tofu'   read here.

Black Bean Sauce Chicken ~ 黑豆酱鸡

  This is an easy peasy chicken dish to whip up in the kitchen which can pair well with plain white rice or plain congee.  Ingredients are not complicated and mostly available in the kitchen, but it's best to season the chicken first before stir frying them. Black Bean Sauce Chicken   ~   黑豆酱鸡 Ingredients 450 gm  chicken, cut into bite size (whole leg of chicken and breast) 2 tsp black bean sauce 4 pips of garlic, chopped 1 big onion cut into wedges 1 chilli, chopped 1 small Carrot, cut into slices Curry leaves Bit of sugar to taste Method Season the chicken with a pinch of salt. Saute the chopped garlic with the curry leaves and black bean sauce till fragrant. Add in the seasoned chicken, stir fry and sprinkle on some water if the dish is too dry. Simmer till chicken is cooked and tender. Add in the sliced carrot and onion wedges.  Fine tune to taste with a bit of sugar. Toss in the chopped chilli. Dish up to serve.
