Tuesdays with Dorie - Kugelhopf

I started a bit late on this recipe, so the post is a little late, but hey, it's still Tuesday :)

I liked this recipe (except for the raisins). I substituted some chocolate carmel chips I had, and I like it. The dough is very close to a brioche, just missing a bit of butter (though there is no shortage in this recipe). Next time, I think some cinnamon and some nuts would be a good addition.

I made them into individual servings in a heart shaped muffin tin. I thought filling up the tins about half-way before the rise would be about right, but I was wrong. These definitely overflowed, though they still taste good. I would say to fill the tins no more than 1/3 the next time. You would get about 18 that way (I had 12 monsters). I also shortened the baking time, 10 minutes at first, then 8 minutes with the foil.
