I got to use two items for the first time with this recipe...my dough hook for my Kitchen Aid, and my Pampered Chef stoneware bunt pan. I was surprised at how simple this recipe was. Ingredient wise. It was quick and painless, well, quick if you don't count all the rising time.
Here is a time warp of my dough rising in my bunt pan.
Anyways, I had never heard of Kugalhopf in my life...so I was anxious to try something new! It smelled delicious in the oven, however, I have to admit, it wasn't what I was expecting. To me, it tasted like a semi sweet dinner roll with raisins. (And, I only put raisins in it because my husband likes them) Good thing, too, because that was his first comment "Mmm, I like the raisins in this!"
So I probably won't be making this again, but at least the hubby liked it!
Oh, my sad little Kugelhopf....the aftermath of a non - nonstick pan.
