The thrill of babka, which is a specialty of Jewish bakeries, is its ambiguity: cake or bread? Bad babkas are extreme in one direction or the other: too bready or too much like cake. It’s a very tricky pastry, all too often dry or drippy, ridiculously chocolaty or not chocolaty enough, oversweet or underweight. The ultimate babka teeters in perfect balance.
