    veraj9170's Note:

    I love collecting recipe books (all kinds I have no faves). I'm also very, very fond of breakfast for dinner, especially in the summer during work days. But my fave is this Babka, it's from a book I've had for ages. It's great sliced in the morning with a bit of jam and coffee. THIS TAKES ABOUT 2 DAYS TO COMPLETE. BUT.... better than any bakery I've been to buy it! Please read full instructions before starting!.. Very worth it! Enjoy.
