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 It is baked in a special circular pan, originally made of enamelled pottery, now also used for making Bundt cakes.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)
I had to re-route her to Kuglof Heaven. http://kuglof.lap.hu/
There's probably 500 or more recipes of every kind of Kuglof on the planet. And oddly enough - the website is from Hungary.
