Basic Babka

This Jewish treat is a hybrid of sweet roll, swirl bread, and coffee cake. It’s a sweet yeast dough that you roll out, fill, and roll up like a jelly roll, then cut, twist, and bake in a loaf pan. Don’t worry: It looks fancy (and it IS a little messy), but it’s seriously easy to do. And once you get the dough down, you can try it with other fillings.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 cups mango – peeled, seeded, and cubed

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Beat eggs, cream, and butter until smooth in another large bowl. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture until batter is moistened. Fold mango into batter until just combined. Evenly divide batter into prepared muffin cups.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 25 minutes.
