Guy has been requesting a babka every Christmas for the past 3 years, so today I finally made good on my promise to make him one. It pretty much took all day, although most of that time is just spent waiting for dough to rise. It's cooling right now--hopefully, it will taste good.
It's from a recipe that was published in the New York Times in 2007. It contains apricot jam and chocolate--I forgot to take a photograph of the chocolate step, which happened right before I rolled the babka.
