• 1 lbs flour
  • 1/4 lbs butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tbsp powdered sugar (confectioner's)
  • 1 tbsp yeast
  • 1/4 cup dried Raisins, marinated in brandy
  • 2 tbsp chopped almonds
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. In a large pot, mix together the milk, Granulated sugar|Sugar, and butter.
  2. Cook over low heat, just enough to let the butter melt.
  3. When the butter melts, transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  4. Let it cool for 30 minutes.
  5. Add the eggs, yeast, salt, Raisins, and flour - little by little.
  6. Use an electric mixer to beat the mixture until smooth. Let the *dough* rest for about 30 minutes.
  7. Preheat the oven to 400 F (or 200 C). Arrange chopped almonds at the bottom of a greased *kugelhof* mold.
  8. (loaf pan or cake mold is ok - kugelhof mold is a round mold with a well in the middle)
  9. Add the dough, then bake in the oven for 40 - 45 minutes, until cooked.
  10. Check by inserting a knife in the middle. If it comes out clean, then the cake is cooked.
  11. Remove from oven and let it cool for 1 hour.
  12. Remove from the mold, then dust with powdered sugar. Serve warm.
