Check cooking.

Do not turn out too hot, wait approximately 15 minutes before turning out onto a rack, and then dust with icing sugar.

Remarks

The quantity of raisins is approximate, do not hesitate to decrease or increase according to your taste.

Kugelhof dries out and goes stale quickly after being cut, so remember to store it in an airtight tin if possible.
