    Alsace in a biscuit

    Invite an icon of Alsace traditions to your table with our scrumptious Kougelhopf…

    The Kougelhopf is THE must-try brioche in Alsace, and it occupies a place close to the hearts of all Alsace locals, although its reputation is known far beyond our borders. Its typical shape, with a high, grooved dome and hollow centre, is created by its traditional Soufflenheim terracotta mould. In this brioche, you'll discover decadent buttery flavours and rum-soaked raisins. Its crest is decorated by hand, using whole almonds.

    The Kougelhopf by the Maison Alsacienne de Biscuiterie

    What makes the Maison Alsacienne de Biscuiterie's Kougelhopf so popular?

    A recipe that has been honed to perfection and used by our bakers and pâtissiers along with ingredients of undeniable quality! Our bakers begin by placing whole almonds individually in the base of the mould, forming a crown for the Kougelhopf once it's taken out of the mould.

    Good and proper kneading techniques, resting time, slow rising, and lastly baking in an authentic mould made with Soufflenheim terracotta… A whole process goes into creating this sumptuously soft and light brioche.

    A brioche to share

    The ritual of Sunday brunch with friends and family is sacred here. Pair this delectable moment with a worthy sweet treat: Cut into generous slices, our Kougelhopf is perfect for sharing during wonderful times together, as part of the best way to start a day…

    Much more than just a brioche, the Kougelhopf symbolises sharing, a love of life's pleasures and, most of all, the joy in spending time together.

    Why not try it toasted? A few minutes in the oven or toaster will add a delectable crunch to it…
