Bake 52 Week 9: Babka

 Babka.  I've never heard of it until now.  I had no idea what to expect.  I would consider it to be a dessert bread.  The dough is very sweet and there is cinnamon, sugar, and walnuts rolled into it.  Raisins are optional.  It was delightful.  I thought it was a beautiful bread.  I felt very accomplished when I pulled it out of the oven.  It tastes amazing!  I will definitely make it again when I want to impress someone.  The recipe makes two loaves, but I only made one.  I made crescent rolls with the rest of the dough, like Amanda did. My only problem was that my loaf was a bit doughy in the middle.  Did anyone else have this problem?

I would definitely recommend this recipe, and here is the link:




  1. OH my goodness, it looks amazing! Look at you, such an accomplished bread maker!! Great minds think alike (with the rolls) :). Your loaf looks so great, after seeing all the loaves, I wish I had made one too. Great idea to do one of each!

  2. Your loaf looks beautiful! I really wish I had thought of the rolls, I am going to try that!

  3. Your bread looks so great. Love that both you and Amanda decided to make rolls... wish I had thought of that.

  4. That looks beautiful and delicious. Very impressive. If I weren't so intimidated by bread, maybe I would try it. One day :)

  5. You babka looks awesome, makes me think I should have been more careful about how I put it in the pan, mine looked nothing like this
    And I'm blaming the short comments and spelling errors on my tiny keyboard :)
