Bundt/Babka


On our first visit to NYC I ate too many lemon babkas from Zabars. When I think of bundts I also think of babkas and the Seinfeld episode where they fought over the chocolate one. Now they looked like bundts but Jerry and Elaine called them babkas (unless I recall incorrectly) which I thought were something completely different ....
I bought a bundt/babka tin after our visit and used it only once in London but the cake stuck to the tin horrendously despite using some sort of toxic spray to try and lubricate the tin. Today I dug it out, slathered it in melted butter and flour and voila, a chocolate bundt/babka. Of course you can't see the gorgeous patterns, I'll work on a glazed version next time.

Presumably you have to reduce the cooking time with one of those cake tins... I've always wondered this...
