Babka is a sweet and rich yeast bread served at Easter. A successful babka - the pride of every Polish homemaker - is tender, fine-textured and very light. Traditionally, this bread is baked in tall round baking tins, similar to pannetone.

This recipe is wonderful. Very light. If you like Babka, you will like this. Follow step by step and you will have success. Just like my moms, except she put on a sugary top which I love. Does anyone know how to add that to this recipe? - 20 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This weekend is Russian easter. My family (Grandmother and her sisters) traditionally go to church and get their babka's blessed on Saturday. My great aunt used to make them, but since she has passed, no one kept the tradition until this year, a couple of weeks ago I "tested" this recipe out after looking around and sure enough, Grandma approved and said tasted JUST like her sisters...So now I'm stuck making them all day today and tomorrow!! We do it in coffee cans, no liner just greased, and we do not add raisins. We ice it with powdered sugar, corn syrup and a little water and add sprinkles for the kids. - 24 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
