Tuesdays With Dorie: Kugelhopf


Yolanda of The All-Purpose Girl chose the Kugelhopf recipe this week. I have to be honest and say that I was really not a fan at all, but I'm glad I tried it anyway. It was a little dry and just not much flavor even with all the butter that you drown it in. I couldn't even think of any way to add more calories. I just wasn't feeling it this week with the recipe.


I guess it smelled pretty good though because I had a visitor at my back door when it was baking.

What do you mean is that really a peacock? Don't you have wild peacocks running around your neighborhood?


Back to the Kugelhopf...I even tried to make french toast out of it the next morning and it still didn't do anything for me.


I am sure there will be recipes that I love and some that I can do without and that's why this is such a great group to be a part of. Someone else gets to choose things for me to bake that I wouldn't otherwise pick myself. For the full recipe go to Yolanda's blog, or buy the book. You know the drill by now. Be sure to check the TWD blogroll and see the other opinions of Kugelhopf.

That was a great idea to try and make french toast out of it. Hard to believe that didn't help. Sorry, you weren't feeling this one!

We have alligators runing around our neighborhood. Okay, well, they're aren't always running around but they are in all the ponds and we have other critters. :-)

Haha. We do have wild peacocks in our neighborhood. We would tell our house guests if, in the middle of the night, you think someone is walking on the roof, don't be afraid, it is just a peacock.

Too bad you didn't like it much. It looks good, though!

I couldn't agree more - this one just wasn't up my alley at all. But like you, I'm glad I gave it a try anyway.

Yours does look pretty though :)

I think it just wasn't a sweet as we were expecting. Maybe if we thought it was a bread and not a cake and slathered it with sweet chocolate....

Love the peacock! Sorry it wasn't your favorite...but it did turn out nicely! Looking forward to the rice pudding!

Welcome to TWD! I love the peacock and wish they were in my backyard as well.
