What Is Babka?
A babka is a delicious braided bread or cake that originated in Polish, Russian, and Ukrainian Jewish communities. It is well-liked in both Israel and the Jewish diaspora. It's made using yeast-leavened dough that's rolled out and filled with a filling like chocolate, cinnamon, fruit, or cheese before being wrapped up, braided, and baked.
What Is The Difference Between Babka And Challah?
Babka is an Eastern European yeast-based dough with swirls of chocolate or cinnamon that is cooked in a loaf pan. While Challah is a classic bread prepared with eggs, water, yeast, flour, sugar, and salt, it is commonly braided and cooked in a variety of forms for various festivals.
It doesn't matter that they're both good yeast-based breads: challah and babka both have very different textures, and babka often has raisins, almonds, or chocolate in it to make it more sweet.
