    monicawf's Note:

    My Babci's (grandmother's) babka is a bit drier and more like bread than most that I have made or eaten. While I like the softer, more cake-like versions, my family has other ideas! My father used to have thin sliced babka with Easter ham as a sandwich. This is the recipe that my mother transcribed from the original Polish, when my Babci wrote it down. It's just yummy with a thin coat of soft butter!

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 16

    Yield:

    babka

    Units: US | Metric

    Cheese Topping

    • 8 ounces cream cheese (blend cream cheese sugar, and add egg yolks, continue to blend well with mixer until smooth)
    • 2 egg yolks
    • 1/2 cup sugar

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Dissolve yeast in warm cream.
    2. 2
      Combine with half the sugar and half the flour and let double in size.
    3. 3
      Add all remaining ingrdients except the raisins and knead until smooth.
    4. 4
      It will be sticky. Add more flour as necessary to keep it from sticking to the counter. (I usually use at least 1 1/2 cups extra.)
    5. 5
      Add the raisins while continuing to knead.
    6. 6
      Grease a tube or bundt pan and dust with flour.
    7. 7
      Place dough in pan, cover with plastic wrap and a clean cloth and leave in a very warm draft-free place until double once again.
    8. 8
      Spread the top with cheese topping. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes or until golden brown.
    9. 9
      NOTE: I use a heating pad to keep the bowl warm and keep the dough rising.
