Gugelhupf or Kugelhupf From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia German cake called "Gugelhupf" Czech version called "Bábovka" with cocoa filling. A Gugelhupf or Kugelhupf is a southern German, Austrian, Swiss and Alsatian term for a type of cake. In the Czech Republic it is called bábovka, in Poland it is called babka, in Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia, it is called kuglof. It has the general shape of a torus, like a donut. As with the Jewish dish kugel, the name 'gugelhupf' is related to the Middle High German word Kugel meaning "ball" or "globe".
A common Gugelhupf consists of a soft yeast dough and contains raisins, almonds and Kirschwasser cherry brandy. Some also contain candied fruits and nuts. It is baked in a special circular pan, originally made of enamelled pottery, now also used for making Bundt cakes. It is usually eaten for breakfast or a coffee break.
Although we have a few coffee cake recipes, we tried to only classic hungarian favourites. We have the Aranygaluska (which translated means Golden Dumplings - they are not dumplings, but because the yeast sweet dough is torn into sections into the buttered pan - hence the name Galuksa)
