Description

Beautifully braided and layered with ribbons of filling, babka is as enticing to the eye as it is delicious. Join Laurie as she bakes up Chocolate-Pecan Babka and Cinnamon-Chocolate Babka. You'll learn how to handle a simple yeast dough and create babka’s signature layers and shape. Laurie will share ideas for additional fillings and variations, inspiring you to create your own loaves of fresh-baked babka for the holiday table.

Vegetarian with gluten; optional dairy and eggs.
