Almond Gugelhupf

  1. Brush Gugelhupf mould with melted butter and preheat oven to 180 °C (fan).
  2. Separate the eggs and beat the yolks with icing sugar to a cream. Flavour with a shot of nut liqueur or rum and vanilla sugar.
  3. Rub the toast between your fingers to create very fine breadcrumbs. Mix well with the flour and the grated almonds. Stir into the egg yolk mix and mix together thoroughly.
  4. Beat the egg whites with the granulated sugar to a stiff peak. Carefully fold the beaten egg white into the mix. Pour the mix into the prepared mould. Bake for around 45 – 50 minutes.
  5. Remove the Gugelhupf, allow to cool slightly, then tip out. Gently heat the apricot jam and coat the Gugelhupf (using a brush).
  6. Roast almond flakes in a coated pan without fat until light brown and spread over the Gugelhupf.

Wachau Apricot Dumplings

The apricot dumpling, or Marillenknödel, is emblematic for the Wachau region. And it is also a clear illustration of how the Austrian people are open to other cultures. This delicacy combines what is originally a Chinese fruit (the apricot) with a plant from Polynesia (sugar) and an Upper Austrian idea for preparing food (the dumpling). Moreover, the EU certification of controlled origin “Wachauer Marille g.U.” guarantees that these fruits belong to the best of their species.
