Does anyone have a good babka recipe? Answered

Our local deli/bakery closed down and now we don't know where to get a babka (or bobka).  It a sweet yeast loaf with either cinammon/raisin  or chocolate/nuts rolled in.  The bready part is moist, yeasty, and the pieces pull apart because it's rolled.  I saw some pictures of a Polish-style babka made in a bundt pan; I don't know if it's the same. What I want is apparently the Jewish style.


This is horribly late, but Smitten Kitchen has a delicious looking recipe. I'll be making it very soon!

Thank you. If fact, it is not too late. Please let me know how this turns out. I am in the process of losing 50 pounds and starting to run again, and the description of how utterly decadent and full of butter it is has thrown me off wanting to make it!
