Don't be offended it he tells you that you have missed the mark, it is almost impossible to recreate a food memory from childhood!

A Guglhupf is something special from Southern Germany/Austria.
It's mostly made of yeast dough, raisins almonds and Schnaps, usually Kirschwasser.


Gugelhupf - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
*******************************
Guglhupf

1 kg flour
1 cube yeast (you have these fresh yeast cubes, haven't you? Alternative take dry yeast for 1kg flour)
250 g Margarine
250 ml milk
180 g sugar
2 eggs
pinch Salt
250 g raisins
50 g almonds, chopped
juice of a lemon
confectioner's sugar

Prepare a pre-yeast dough in the middle of the flour with 1 Ts sugar und half of the milk, lukewarm.
let rest for 15-20min.
melt margarine in the rest of the warm milk, add with the rest of the ingredients to the pre-dough and knead well, let rest for another 20-30min.
Now you need a special Guglhupf-baking-pan (amazon sells it).
Put the dough into teh well oiled baking pan and
bake in the middle of a pre-heated oven at190C (375F) for about one hour.
You may cover it after around 45 min, so it doesn't get too brown.

will look for the conversions soon, but now breakfast is ready ;o)

Most any bundt pan should do. Lemon zest will impart a flavor not achievable with just lemon juice, dried yeast should work fine and some would say 'butter is better'.
Substitution of sour cream for some of the milk and butter can produce a more moist cake.

the guglhupf-pan is a kind of basic equipment for every household, even I have one ;o)
Butter might be as good, my Mum always takes margarine and it tastes great

***************
1kg = 4 1/4 cups
250g = about 1cup
180g = about 1/3 cup
