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.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!
