Tuesdays With Dorie – Kugelhopf

See previous TWD post about unpronouncable names.

My house is sub-zero, so my dough did not rise very well.  Also, my Kugelhopf Pan must have been in the shop (heh), so I just used a plain ol’ bundt pan.  The end product looked like an enormous raisin bagel.

In conclusion, Rachel and I spent our anniversary waiting for dough to rise.

The good news?  After a disappointing couple of weeks (Pumpkin Muffins, Chocolate Cupcakes, and Rugelach), I’ve produced something that I am proud of.  It tastes pretty good.

Gotta run.  Lots of stuff to catch up on.

  1. Glad you liked it. Seems like a good anniversary baked good, looks like there’s a heart in the middle. How cute.

  2. Hey! You did a great job.

    Mine didn’t raise either, even with all the waiting.

  3. 🙂 Love the large raisin bagel 🙂 Mine didn’t raise very well either because my kitchen was cold. Yay for Kugelhoph!

  4. Glad to hear that you had better results than me. I wasn’t a kugelhopf fan and if it had been my anniversary I think I would have been pissed. Rachel is a saint. She’s definitely a keeper! 🙂
