From the makers of Yallingup Woodfired Bread comes Yallingup Gugelhupf. A funny name for a serious staple. The Gugelhupf is a cake known since ancient Rome, maybe longer. These days it is mainly popular in Austria and France, but the Geographe Bay and Margaret River Capes region is also a well known food and wine lovers destination so lets add Gugelhupf to the table!
More informationThe special shape of the Gugelhupf Cake comes from a special mould to give the "King of Cake" its crown shape but more importantly the shape creates an even temperature during the baking process.
Just like our Yallingup Woodfired Bread, we source the best ingredients and bake in genuine ceramic moulds to provide a pleasant sweet or savoury enhancement for your breakfast, lunch or dinner table.
History of the Gugelhupf:
Kaiser Franz Joseph, the Emperor of Austria and Apostolic King of Hungary from 1848 to 1916, had 'Gugelhupf' for his daily breakfast, while the rich, the poor and all in between enjoyed 'Gugelhupf' at their coffee tables, just as the case is today. The Swiss and the Germans have the same habit.
We don't know about Napoleon, but the French gave us "Le Kugelhopf" with walnut and speck that goes well with wine and cheese.
But in independent Yallingup, Western Australia you can have Gugelhupf for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the times in between with coffee, tea and wine. The many different sweet and savoury jams, sauces and chutneys produced by local food enthusiasts turn every Gugelhupf into a meal.
Enjoy in moderation.
