My dear wife Karen and I both made trips to different locations of a local Price Chopper supermarket this week in search of a special Easter treat we’d found in their bakery department in years past.
Both places told us that they were no longer making the cheese babka. Karen bought a raisin babka. We had a slice each on Saturday. But, oh, we were missing that special taste and texture of the cheese version.
So she found a recipe up on her iPad, and baked one.
We had babka bits last night, the parts that spilled over the pan while it was baking.
Today we will cut into that very special homemade cheese babka for Easter.
It contains an ingredient we wouldn’t find in any bakery babka, anyhow.
Happy Easter to all. May you enjoy it with your loved ones.
