This is a superb vintage French Copper Kugelhopf mold. This can also be used as a jelly mould.

It is in good condition for its age. The lining is intact so this can be safely used. It has a couple of small dents but these just add to the charm of the piece.

There is a loop for hanging on the side.

I have given it a bit of a clean but with a little more elbow grease it would be absolutely gleaming.

It is just over 5 inches (13cms) in diameter across the bottom and 2 inches
(5cms) tall. Please see the last picture of more copper molds that I have for sale.

Kugelhopf, which may also be spelled Kugelhupf, gugelhupf or kugelhoph, is a classic cake said to have originated in Austria or in the Alsace region of France. Legend has it that Marie Antoinette, who was born in Vienna, Austria, brought the cake recipe to France upon her marriage to Louis XVI. There are some disputes regarding this, and the cake may have been introduced in France earlier. Variations of the cake are made in Germany, Switzerland, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Poland, and Hungary. It is also popular in many other countries today, including the US, UK, Australia and elsewhere.

Unlike most desserts we would term cake, kugelhopf is a yeast-risen cake, using active dry or fresh yeast instead of baking soda or baking powder. This gives the cake a slightly denser more “bready” texture, similar to the Italian panettone. Kugelhopf is also not frequently served as an after dinner dessert. Instead it’s considered more of a coffee cake that might be eaten for or with breakfast, or could be part of an afternoon snack. There’s certainly no reason not to serve it as dessert after dinner, since it is still nicely sweet, and especially if the dinner has been relatively light.

I have other copper items listed and am happy to combine shipping on multiple items.
