Check out what the other Tuesdays With Dorie bakers created here.

This is my first post as a member of the Tuesdays with Dorie blog. I made this Kugelhopf to be eaten at our election night party. I wasn't sure what to expect, as I had never had (nor heard of) Kugelhopf before. Apparently the name refers to the type of pan that it is traditionally baked in, which resembles a Turk's hat. I guess I expected more of a cake-like consistency, but this is a bread for sure. It is somewhat similar to a brioche, but far less eggy (to me). The recipe called for raisins, which I don't love, so I used Craisins instead. The bread turned out beautiful, and while time consuming, it was very easy to make. I think it would make an EXCELLENT base for a bread pudding! I will have to try that next time I make it.
