so, i’ve been interested in kougelhopf for a long time. i’ve made pannetone before, but not this thingy…and they look the same to me. i found a recipe on a Chinese recipe site. I made the dough entirely in a food processor (because i don’t have a kitchen aid, and it was way too liquidy for me to handle by hand) version version


260 grams flour

4 grams yeast

4 grams salt

25 grams sugar (i used double…and you should too)

85 grams milk

2 eggs

75 grams butter, softened

1/2 cup raisins, soaked in whatever you want (i used rum)

zest of 1 lemon and 1 orange

1. Mix everything but the butter in a bread machine (or food processor). Add butter, and knead until smooth. It wasn’t really smooth for me, but you’ll get there if you have a bread machine. mix in raisins

2. Let rise until double. Punch down, and place into a well greased pan (use a kougelhopf pan if you’re fancy smancy for put it in a bundt pan or any ‘ol pan) let rise until doubled

3. Bake at 375 F for 40 minutes for one big loaf, or 20 minutes for 2 small loaves.
