Not Worth the Wait
Even since I saw the Seinfeld episode "The Dinner Party," I've wanted to try a babka.
Unfortunately, the bakeries around here tend to be run by Italians or Germans; the Jewish and/or Eastern European babka isn't part of their tradition.
Finally, I found a cinnamon babka at Wegmans! And having done so, I ask...isn't this just cinnamon bread? I feel like I could've paid half as much for ordinary Pepperidge Farm cinnamon swirl bread.
Am I missing something? Yes, I know, a babka is technically a cake, not a bread. But I don't know what the difference is. All I know is that it costs more than twice as much.
