I actually ran a little short of the amount of oatmeal called for (by about a cup) but preceeded with the recipe. As a result I think they spread a bit more than they normally would. Of course, the 2 sticks of butter didn’t help with the spreading either!
What is a babke, you ask? (Or maybe it was me doing the asking.) A babke is sort of a yeast-risen cake from Eastern Europe, made with rich ingredients, including egg yolks, sugar and butter. Sort of like a cross between a cake and a bread. I baked mine in a loaf shaped pan and it was filled with semisweet chocolate and cinnamon.
Who knew bagels were so easy to make?? Last night I started the dough and I boiled and baked them this morning. L. said they are so good, they are “beyond a bagel.”
