This is supposedly a recipe that Marie Antoinette took with her from Austria to France, where it became increasingly popular. It is traditionally baked in a special Kugelhopf mold, which gives it a festive look (it can be made in a tube pan) Thus it makes a delightful holiday bread. Kugelhopf is an excellent coffee cake or breakfast bread, especially with fresh butter and honey. It can also be served topped with fruit, and makes delicious toast indeed. I seached for this recipe for many years and finally found a Canadian Chef on the internet who was kind enough to give me this one... I get excited over this recipe because I am now 67 yrs old and I can remember my German Grandmother sitting at the kitchen table when I was 5 years old, beating this dough with a wooden spoon...what a wonderful memory and taste !!!

Yield 1 cake, 8-10 serving(s)
Number Of Ingredients 9
- Dissolve the yeast with the sugar in the warm water and let it proof.
- Sift the flour, putting 2 cups in each of two bowls.
- Set one bowl aside.
- Work together 2 cups of flour and the soft butter (this may be done in the electric mixer).
- Mix in the salt and the eggs, one at a time, beating until very thoroughly incorporated.
- In alternate batches, add the remaining 2 cups flour and the yeast mixture.
- Mix in the electric mixer or with a wooden spoon until thoroughly blended and elastic, then stir in the raisins.
- Put in a large, lightly floured bowl, cover with a towel, and let rise in a warm, draft-free spot until doubled in bulk, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
- Punch the dough down.
- Heavily butter a standard 10-inch Kugelhoph mold or a 10-inch tube pan and sprinkle half the sliced almonds around the bottom of the mold (the butter will make them adhere).
- Pour or spoon half the dough into the mold, sprinkle in the rest of the almonds, and add the remaining dough.
- Let rise again until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 475 degrees F.
- for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350 degrees and continue baking until nicely browned, about 40 to 45 minutes.

- Stir together yeast and water in a small bowl and let stand until foamy, 5 to 10 minutes. (If mixture doesn't foam, discard and start over with new yeast.)
- Heat milk with 6 tablespoons butter and granulated sugar over low heat, stirring, until mixture is warm (105 to 115°F), butter is melted, and sugar is dissolved.
- Sift together flour and salt into bowl of standing mixer. Make a well in flour and add yeast mixture. Add warm milk in a slow stream, mixing at low speed with paddle attachment. Increase speed to medium and beat in eggs 1 at a time, then beat in raisins and zest. Continue to beat until dough is smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. (Dough will be very sticky.)
- Butter kugelhopf mold with remaining tablespoon butter. Put 1 almond in each depression in bottom of mold (the almonds are only decorative; you can skip them altogether if your mold has no depressions), then scrape spoonfuls of dough evenly into mold (dough will be very elastic). Cover top of mold with oiled plastic wrap and a kitchen towel and let dough rise in a warm place until it fills pan, about 2 hours.
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Remove towel from kugelhopf and gently peel off plastic wrap. Bake kugelhopf in middle of oven 15 minutes, then loosely cover mold with foil and continue to bake until golden and a tester inserted in center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes more. Cool in pan 2 minutes, then invert cake onto a rack to cool completely, about 1 hour. Dust with confectioners sugar.
- Dough: Bring milk almost to a boil in a saucepan. Remove from heat, and stir in butter, granulated sugar, vanilla, and salt. Transfer to a large bowl, and let cool until lukewarm, 3 to 5 minutes. Add 1 1/2 cups flour and the yeast, and beat with a mixer on low speed. Beat in eggs and egg yolk, 1 at a time. Beat in remaining 3 cups flour, 1/2 cup at a time. Transfer dough (it will be sticky) to a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes. Place in a buttered bowl, and turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch down dough, knead a few times, and let rest 10 minutes. Roll out into a 14-by-22-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface.
- Filling: Mix together brown sugar, raisins, and chocolate. Brush butter on dough, and sprinkle filling on top, leaving a 1-inch border.
- Starting from a long side, roll up dough; cut crosswise into 12 slices. Place 6 slices flush against the side of a buttered 10-inch tube pan. Place remaining 6 slices, cut sides together, around tube of pan. Cover, and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake cake until golden and a toothpick inserted into the center of cake comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Let cool in pan on a wire rack 15 minutes. Unmold, and let cool completely on rack, about 1 hour. Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving.
RUM AND EGGNOG KUGELHOPF
- Soak currants in rum overnight.
- In a saucepan, heat the eggnog to a boil. Pour it into a large bowl and add 1 1/2 cups of bread flour. Mix until smooth and let the mixture cool to 110 degrees F (43 degrees C) or just warm to the touch. Add the instant yeast and mix until blended. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow to rise until doubled, 20 to 30 minutes.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the sugar and butter together until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Stir in the salt and cinnamon. Pour the egg mixture into the dough and mix until smooth. Gradually add the remaining 2 cups of bread flour and mix for 3 minutes. The dough will be very sticky. Stir in the currants, cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and allow it to rest for 20 minutes.
- Lightly grease a kugelhopf mold or Bundt pan. Sprinkle the bottom of the pan with sliced almonds. Carefully add the dough mixture and cover with plastic wrap. Let the dough rise until doubled, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
- Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Bake the kugelhopf in the preheated oven until the loaf is deep golden brown and the bottom of the loaf sounds hollow when tapped, 30 to 35 minutes. Invert the loaf onto a wire rack to cool. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.

- Mix the raisins with the Cognac and 3 tablespoons of the sugar in a small saucepan and set aside.
- Mix the yeast with 1/4 cup of the milk in a large bowl and set in a warm place for about 5 minutes, until it becomes frothy. Stir in the remaining milk and sugar. Add the salt and 2 cups of the flour.
- Beat the dough by hand or machine, adding all but 3/4 cup of the flour. Beat in all but 1 tablespoon of the butter, a tablespoon at a time. Knead in enough of the remaining flour to make a dough that is soft but not sticky and is very elastic. Kneading should take 2 to 3 minutes by machine, or about 6 minutes by hand.
- Heat the raisin mixture and cook just until most of the Cognac has evaporated.
- Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and pat into a flattened rectangle. Spread the raisins on it, fold the dough over and knead a couple of minutes by hand to incorporate the raisins.
- Heavily butter a two-quart kugelhopf pan or a 10-inch bundt pan with the remaining tablespoon of butter and sprinkle with the almonds, turning the pan so they adhere to its interior. Place the dough in the pan, breaking a hole in the center to accommodate the tube. Set aside, lightly covered, and let rise 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
- Punch dough down in the pan. Let rise again, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake the cake for about 45 minutes, until nicely browned. Allow it to cool completely in the pan, then unmold. Dust with sifted confectioners' sugar before serving.

Just bought this lovely new bundt pan and this recipe was on the box. I searche on here for others and there are a couple but differant than this one - for one thing it only takes 2 eggs, not 6. I'm truly guessing at the serving size as it's not listed. When I made it I did add a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a teaspoon of almond as I was leaving out the raisins (can't stand them myself) and it was wonderful, light and only slightly sweet. Next time I'm going to make a vanilla glaze drizzle over it and top with almonds for a prettier presentation.

Add just 1/2 cup of the flour and stir until it forms a smooth batter, about 100 strokes. Cover the bowl and let this poolish sit for at least 20 minutes or up to 60 minutes. In this time, the poolish should rise to twice its original size and you should see lots of little bubbles on the surface.
