Babka Cheesecake and Other Awesome Jewish Dessert Mash-ups

If you can never decide what Jewish treat to nosh on because you’d rather just have a little bit of everything, mashup recipes are the ones for you–they seem to say, yes you really can have it all!

For indecisive New Yorkers who want babka and cheesecake, you’re in luck: Breads Bakery is making Babka Cheesecake for Shavuot. This famous, Israeli-owned bakery implemented Cheesecake May where they introduced a new one each week. The cheesecakes were such a hit that they’ll be serving them through Shavuot this coming weekend, until June 13th.

We’re big believers in cheesecake mashups. In fact, we’ve come up with a few of our own, including Black & White Cookie Cheesecake (below) and Rugelach Bread Pudding Cheesecake.
