  • About

Probably original to Russia, Poland, or another location in Eastern Europe, in the United States babka is primarily associated with the Jewish baking tradition. A store-bought babka has usually been baked in a loaf pan, whereas homemade versions are baked in a tube or Bundt pan-there are instructions for both shapes here. Thanks to Mildred Shapiro for sharing her family babka recipe.
