The Best Babka Recipes on the Internet

Sweet, savory, and other delicious ways to enjoy babka.

Babka, babka everywhere. And I’m not complaining one bit. Every time I log onto Pinterest, I see yet another delicious, swirled babka recipe calling my name.

Babka is an Eastern European yeasted cake known for its gooey, swirled interior. And while we know that chocolate babka reigns supreme, at least according to Seinfeld, these days, food writers and bloggers are having so much fun dreaming up sweet and savory filling ideas far beyond your average cinnamon or chocolate version.

If you’ve never made babka before, check out our handy guide to shaping babka and our video showcasing four different ways to make it.

Now get ready to drool…
