We have a little saying in our house that goes like this: Whatever Jack wants, Jack gets. Jack wanted Chocolate Babka, so that’s what I made for FBF last week. The good news is that I used this recipe, from Smitten Kitchen, which was 1000 times easier than the one I used last time. However, it was only 90% as good. So now I am wondering if I should try to take the best parts from each and combine them. Seems risky and complicated.
I shouldn’t even post that picture of the bread because it makes it look a little under done on the inside. The judges on The British Baking Show (or whatever its called) would not fully approve.
I thought it was very good and very easy to make, and Jack felt like he didn’t get a fair amount of servings, so I will probably make it again soon. I’m in the midst of a baking signup perfect storm where I had to make FBF this morning, followed by muffins for a bake sale tomorrow, and cookies for a mountain bike race on Sunday. Hopefully I won’t burn out and going into another Fancy Breakfast Friday dry spell that’s just full of waffles. Fall FBF is the best FBF.
That looks so good- my mouth is watering. Put that on my request list.
This looks amazing!
It’s really good. Make it for sure!
I’d love it if you could check out my blog!
FBF leftovers would be great at the next GABF Avery gathering!
Just make sure to follow this page for a year, and then put your request in one week in advance. I’m sure Avery won’t care if I bring pastries with me. It was great to see you!
