This is a Swiss family recipe I received from my aunt. It is a well balanced dessert. It is a traditional European dessert bread that can be served during a meal or as a light dessert. It is known for its understated sweetness and characteristic ring shape. Traditionaly this is baked in a mold known as a gugelhopf (or kugelhopf) pan. Bundt pans, with their round form, deep fluted sides and central funnel will substitute fine.
