If your morning didn’t start out with a plate looking like mine, fix that.
Now. Or you will ruin Easter.
And if it DID start out with a breakfast like mine, I hope you enjoyed the light, buttery, flaky joy that Babka is. Be careful when toasting because it falls apart so easily, yet that is the delicious joy of it!
But here’s my question: Babka or Paska?
I have received a TON of hits on my site the past two days from people looking for Babka. Droves of people. They ain’t looking for Paska. Yet it was mentioned on another site where someone posted my recipe that Paska is the preferred term.
So, my fellow Ukrainian/Polish people.
Paska or Babka?
And if there is a difference, enlighten me. None of my family refers to it as Paska and we are as Ukrainian as you can get. Throw in some Polish and Russian and we have the traditional breads covered from Babka to Kulich. Which is just another dang name for Babka.
I digress as usual.
I hope everyone is having a lovely Good Friday off work. I started mine with a coffee and toasted Babka, went to the antiques show with my son, had lunch out with the worst Eggs Benedict ever which teaches me not to be lazy and just make my Easy Eggs Benedict, had a quick nap and am now tackling the garden area.
