“We had that babka!” Jerry cried out to Elaine at The Dinner Party episode of Seinfeld. Unfortunately for Elaine and Jerry, they had to settle for the cinnamon babka.
Thanks to Kat, my youngest sis, we ended up with the chocolate babka. I don’t think it was planned for, so it was truly a great and serendipitous find at Trader Joe’s in Monterey, CA.
Don’t be fooled by the layers and think that it’s light and airy because the cake is actually rich and pretty heavy. You be the judge if it’s worth eating during bikini season. As for me, it’s worth eating any season. So worth it that I ended up bringing back two cake loaves just in case our local Trader Joe’s, in my part of the Greater Seattle area, didn’t carry chocolate babka. Who would want to take a risk like that?
