ISO Gâteau du Vully (AKA Vully Kuchen) Recipe

Does anyone have a recipe to share for this Swiss cake? It's basically a sweet yeasted dough that's rolled out similar to pizza, and topped with butter, sugar (and sometimes an egg yolk). There are other iterations, but this is the simplest. Thanks.

  1. There are a lot of recipes for this when you Google it, though they seem mainly to be in French or German. I never heard of it before, but it looks wonderful.

      Thanks, there are a lot of recipes out there, but I'm hoping for someone's tried and true!

        I have never made a gateau de Vully, but I trust the recipes on, if I were to make a gateau de Vully, I'd certainly use that recipe. I seem to recall seeing a recipe in a Swiss cookbook, but I am unable to locate it right now, however, I have found that swissmilk uses pretty standard/published recipes.

        Personally, I think I would like a "Rahmwaehe" better than the gateau de Vully, but that is a personal preference.

          Do you mean Rahm Wähe mit Quitten or Apfel?

          1. re: chefj

            Indeed I was thinking of Rahm Wähe, with Wähe dough, not yeast dough like the Gateau de Vully.

            I have some fond memories of freshly made Nidlewaehe though never with fruit, that is new to me. I have a fondness for Quitten (quince)...

            1. re: walliser

              May be German rather than Swiss?

          2. re: walliser

            I'm going to make the recipe from the Swiss Club Victoria website, which comes from "The Swiss Cookbook" by Betty Bossy:

            Rahm Wähe is heavier than what I'm after here. I'll post with results after I've tried it. Cheers.

              Betty Bossy is where I was looking and it must be in one of the books I don't have. Anything from Betty Bossy should work just fine.
