Place an almond in each hollow of the mould, putting the point towards the outside of the mould, it's prettier.

Stage 10 - 3 min.
Kugelhof for Nanou
Spread dough evenly in mould.

Stage 11 - 2 hours
Kugelhof for Nanou
Cover with a plastic sheet and leave in a warm place to rise, until the dough doubles in volume (between two and three hours).

Then bake in the oven at 210°C or 410°F for approximately 40 minutes.

Stage 12 - 40 min.
Kugelhof for Nanou
Check cooking.

Do not turn out too hot, wait approximately 15 minutes before turning out onto a rack, and then dust with icing sugar.
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.
Several days in a towel bag.
Home made from my great aunt Martha's recipe.
