What is Babka ?
Thanks to my Jewish heritage, I was introduced to babka as soon as my first teeth came in. My mom used to make babka for special occasions – always at least four and with a variety of different fillings. Babka is made of a rich brioche dough, usually with a cinnamon or chocolate filling. Sometimes they’re topped with streusel for extra crunch. In Israel, there are so many variations of this cake, and they’re always so scrumptious and rich. I know one recipe that uses croissant dough instead of brioche, and another that’s loaded with so much white, milk, and dark chocolate that after just one piece, you feel like passing out.
