HoneyB flopped the Kugelhopf
I just want to start quickly with an off topic comment to two special people! My Mother in Law, Sharon has a birthday today and one of my blogging friends, Jenny of Picky Palate has a birthday today also! Happy Birthday Sharon & Jenny!
One evening Grumpy and I got into a "little" disagreement. I was not happy he was on the cell phone while checking out at Lowes. I had no idea what the items were he purchased and the clerk asked him a question that only he could answer. Of course, I looked at her and and rolled my eyes. I was really disgusted with him. So, when we got outside and he couldn't find something he bought I told him. "You should have told "person who called" that you would call them back. Don't you know how rude it is to talk on the cell phone when going thru checkout?" I really think a lot of people have developed major rudeness to the public by the use of cell phones. Don't worry, I'll "learn" Grumpy eventually. Anyway, his response to me after a few exchanges was "Oh yeah, I forgot, your perfect." ha ha. My response? "Oh yeah, I forgot I was too." Of course, I said that quite sarcastically.
Well, if I really thought I was perfect, my TWD task for the week would have knocked me down a few notches. I know I'm not perfect so I wasn't too upset that it failed. I usually have good results with yeast. Usually. Fortunately I didn't waste too many ingredients this week. The thing most precious to me that I did lose was the stick of butter. I was doubting I will make this one again but after reading of some of the success, I really think I will give it a try again. When I have time. Its a time consuming recipe.
To see how this should have turned out check out Yolanda of The All-Purpose Girl. She selected the Kugelhopf recipe on pages 61-63 of Baking From My Home to Yours By Dorie Greenspan. I'm sure there are many other successes out there from my fellow TWD Bakers (as I have already read about a few) so please check out the blogroll and see what's happening!
