Babka Bread  
A popular Russian dessert bread, usually made with white wheat flour that is prepared a number of different ways depending on the recipe. Some recipes call for the bread dough to be formed into a round shape, while others specify a rolled dough similar to a jelly roll. Most recipes call for use of butter and eggs as enrichments and most also include chocolate as a flavoring, although some are left plain. Babka may also include nuts, raisins, cinnamon, and cocoa powder, especially if the bread dough is rolled.
