3. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees top / bottom heat (circulating air: 160 degrees).

4. Bake in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes until golden. You can use a chopstick to test if the cake is ready. When no more batter sticks to the stick, you can take the cake out of the oven and let it cool on a wire rack. Then take out of the mold. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving. Done!

By the way: The first part of the word Gugelhupf probably comes from Gugel, since the baking form corresponds to the main cloth (housing) resembles peasant women tying their heads; this explanation is found in a cookbook as early as 1774. Gugelhupf became popular among the bourgeoisie in Germany and Austria during the Biedermeier period and was considered a status symbol. Old cookbooks show that there was no standard recipe for this cake for a long time.
