This is the worst recipe I ever made and tasted. All you could taste was the eggs. I will go back to making the old fashioned BABKA - the kind that Mom and Grandmom made. It only raised to about 3 inches. Yes, I did follow the directions. It went out in the trash, no one liked it. This is a no star. Sorry !!! Cioci Helcha
I needed a quick version of this recipe as I did not have the time for the yeast method. I baked in a fluted tube pan and glazed with lucre. I Also added some orange zest to the batter and sprinkled over glaze. My son's history class loved it. (He had to bring in a food reflective of his ethnic decent). My daughter wants me to bake another cake for home!
