Cooking Made Easy: Mini Gugl (Ring Cakes)

Every country has some trendy pastries which we immediately connect with that very country. The French have macarons, the British have cupcakes, the American have donuts,... But what pastry do we have in the German-speaking area that is worth to trigger off a new hype? If you ask me it's the mini Gugl which are ring cakes in the size of chocolates. With a special baking set it's really easy to make these little cakes at home but if you're not into baking or first want to see how these pastries taste you can simply order them at DERGUGL (only for Europe). The ring cakes come in really cute boxes and are available in the most special flavours you'll ever taste! If you want to make the mini Gugl for your beloved ones you can buy the special baking sets over here. If you don't have Gugl cake pans and if these aren't available for you, why don't you simply try the following recipe in cupcake pans? For our first Gugl adventure my sister and I chose the "Stracciatella" flavour:

Ingredients for 18 Gugl:

1 vanilla bean
50g butter
50g sugar powder
1 tsp. vanilla sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
80g flour
30g dark chocolate raspers
85g natural yoghourt

1. Grease and flour the cake pans. Preheat the oven at 210°C upper and lower heat.

2. Pick the pulp of the vanilla bean and put it in a bowl together with the sugars. Melt the butter and stir it into the sugar. Add the egg and egg yolk and stir.
3. Fold in the flour and add the yoghourt and chocolate.
4. Use a piping bag to put the dough into the cake pans and bake it all for about 15 minutes. Let the Gugl cool down and remove them from the cake pans.

5. Enjoy!

Have you tried Gugelhupf or mini Gugl so far? What do you think of cakes in the size of chocolates?

  2. was für ein toller Post,
    die Mini Kuchen sehen so lecker aus,
    dass ich am liebsten jetzt selbst einen essen würde, aah! :-)

    Ich war gestern bei DM und habe mir jetzt von Balea das Blond Shampoo
    gekauft und den Repair + Pflege Conditioner.
    Heute abend werde ich sie das erste Mal verwenden, bin schon sehr gespannt
    wie die Produkte sein werden.
