Ingredients
  • Babka:
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar, plus 1/2 teaspoon
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup raisins
  • Topping:
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 pound butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup flour
Directions
  • Cream the butter and 1/2 cup sugar until smooth.

  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks until they are creamy. Mix the yeast in warm water with 1/2 teaspoon of sugar. When this thickens, add it to the egg yolks with the vanilla and salt.

  • Combine the milk with the egg yolks and the creamed butter and sugar. Begin adding the flour until a soft dough is formed. Stir in the raisins until they are evenly distributed. Knead the dough until it is no longer sticky.

  • Cover the dough and allow it to rise in a warm place until it doubles.

  • Butter a 3-quart pan and shape the dough into it. Allow the dough to rise again for about 2 hours.

  • For the topping, cream the cinnamon, sugar and butter, then mix in the egg, milk, and the flour. Coat the top of the dough with this topping and place in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 30 minutes.
