    Lorac's Note:

    An easier and quicker version of Easter Babka. Denser more cake-like and less complicated if you haven't made bread without a machine. Add the Lucre from the Easter version for a sweeter presentation. Posted by request.

      A foolproof recipe! I only made a half recipe and adjusted it to make in a bread machine: that worked well. My mistake was using just 1 babka tube pan, 8" in diameter; there was actually enough dough for 2! It rose really high, was very light and airy. I think it could be a little sweeter but I didn't use the powdered sugar on top; that would help. A glaze would be good too. Also I used vanilla, almond flavoring and a little rum instead of grated rind; I was looking for the flavor that my Polish Mom's babka had. Instead of sprinkling the pan with breadcrumbs, I used sliced almonds. Certainly a keeper. Thanks, Lorac, I will make it again. . . . Janet

      This is the same recipe that has been passed down for at least 3 generations in my family. Every Easter, this bread would be on the table awaiting the blessing from the neighborhood priest. Even today, it's not Easter without a breakfast of hard boiled eggs, kielbasa, and babka.
