Kugelhopf

Previously popular PH Blueberry Maffen came from his new bookPierre Hermepastries, which was also the first book I bought from a master of PH. The title of the book is pastries. After reading the book, I found that the content actually includes the most classic desserts in all aspects, from Marfan, ice cream, crispy skin, Thousand Layers Pie, Makaron to chocolate cake and biscuits, etc… Each category has a slightly changed PH formula besides a classic one. The classic recipe in the book is relatively simple in raw materials, because I bought the model of Kugelhopf back home, so I just opened it. ~Professor PH introduced kugelhopf, saying that it is not a cake, nor a bread or brioche, but a sign of Alsace (northeastern France). But then the Master used the word “cake” to mention it… In short, kugelhoph is a long-standing dessert.~~
