Gugelhupf is a timeless classic that never disappoints. Given that there is enough fruit and nuts are around. Soft, tall, easy and tasty!
As I currently have some time, I had been browsing on the internet last week. Trying to find fresh, interesting tips, inspiring recipes that I’ve never tried before, to astonish my family with. Looking for quite some time but could not find lots of interesting things. Just before I thought to give up on it, I stumbled on this scrumptious and simple treat by chance. The dessert seemed so delicious on its snapshot, that called for rapid actions.
It was not so difficult to imagine the way it is created, how it tastes and just how much my husband will probably want it. Mind you, it is quite simple to delight the man when it comes to desserts. Yes, I am a blessed one. Or perhaps he is.Anyways, I went to the blog: Suncakemom and simply used the simple instuctions which were combined with wonderful graphics of the operation. It just makes life less difficult. I could suppose it is a bit of a inconvenience to shoot snap shots down the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you may most often have gross hands so I really appreciate the time and energy she devote to make this post and recipe conveniently followed.
With that in mind I am inspired to present my very own recipe similarly. Thanks for the thought.
I was tweaking the initial mixture create it for the taste of my loved ones. Need to mention it was a great success. They enjoyed the flavor, the consistency and enjoyed having a delicacy like this in the middle of a lively week. They basically requested even more, more and more. So next time I am not going to commit the same mistake. I am going to double the volume to get them happy.

Take two cups and measure 1/2 / 100ml lukewarm milk into each.
Pour the raisins into one of them and the yeast in the other one. In a couple of minutes the yeasty milk starts to be foamy.
Put flour, butter eggs and honey into a medium size mixing bowl. When the yeast starts to foam pour it in the bowl too.
Dough it until it gets even.
Pour in chocolate chips, raisins or other dried fruit of your choice and mix them well.
Pour batter into the Kugelhopf form and leave it in a warm place for about 40 minutes it raise.
Preheat oven to 350°F / 180°C.
Put Kugelhopf in for a 45 minutes to bake.
Use a toothpick to check if it’s baked. If not, put it back to the oven.
When it’s baked leave it on a cooling rack to cool down.
Melt chocolate and pour it on top of the Kugelhopf.
Sprinkle finely chopped nuts on top.
