Yes, sourdough is having its moment right now... and I am ALL for it! But, if you've hit the jackpot and found a little yeast (active dry or instant), then you must give my Raspberry Jam Brioche Babka (Made with Olive Oil) a try!
The recipe makes two medium-sized swirled babka loaves that are SUPER fluffy and melt-in-your-mouth goodness. The ground cinnamon tossed into the dough batter beautifully complements the fruity sweet notes of the jam. Creamy, toasty, and yeasty notes that make the BEST French toast the following morning!
No worries! Just use whatever jam you have on your hands... or even use melted chocolate or a simple chocolate/nut butter spread ;)
Although I am sure there are many professional bakers that could create a phenomenal list of the differences....
When you get down to the nitty gritty of things, babka is simply filled and twisted brioche. Brioche is the dough itself that resembles a buttery and fluffy bread flavor that is beyond fluffy in texture. Unlike typical yeast doughs, brioche is very rich and tends to be on the sweeter side of breads (think of a really good, classic French toast bread).
Now, I know there are many grandmothers that have poured there hearts into special recipes to separate the two breads, so I do not want to discredit that! :)
I truly hope you all enjoy this scrumptious berry swirled babka recipe that makes my mouth water just looking at it! 'till next time... xxL
