Hello dear Reader. I had a bee in my bonnet, more than once, to bake a Babka. Today was the day I made it happen. None of my cookbooks had a recipe for one, which surprised me. This is the recipe I used. It came out beautifully. The crumb and texture is similar to a Panettone. So far I'm not seeing much swirl in the filling. I had a slice for dinner and one piece feels like a meal! I hope it keeps well. It should with all the butter in it. We shall see!
The dough came together very nicely. You can see the yellow hue from the 2 eggs and 1 egg yolk. I used fresh eggs from a co-worker's chickens. The yolks are bright orange!
I didn't use the 1 1/2 pounds of chocolate that the recipe calls for.
