You can find my recipe for Babka here, adapted from several of my great grandmothers recipes. This year I used poppyseed filling from a can, but you can be sure that I'll try to make my own next year!
Nut Bread & Poppyseed Bread
Nut Bread Filling (for 1 loaf, or half of babka recipe w/o raisins):
1/4lb ground walnuts
1/4c brown sugar
hefty sprinkle cinnamon (to taste)
1 egg white, whisked
Mix well with a fork. If you need a little more liquid, use up to 1T warm milk. Spread out evenly over dough, then roll up! Secure ends under the loaf of the bread, allow it to rise for a second time (2hrs) and then brush with egg wash and bake for ~35min, until it sounds hollow when tapped. Yum!
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
