Anyone fancy a Kugelhupf? Of course you do!! It’s basically an enriched dough with whatever you fancy putting inside, then sticking it in a bundt tin. Imagine a Panettone but a different shape. I really enjoy making enriched doughs. They are so easy yet taste fantastic and with fresh yeast, oh my word it takes things to a whole new level!!!! I have gone festive with cranberries, chocolate and nuts but you can be creative! There is little work but the end product looks pretty impressive and tastes AMAZING!
