FINALLY found the answer to your question about "Babka" recipe for ABM! In

"The Best Bread Machine Cookbook Ever" by Madge Rosenberg there is the
recipe you are looking for! "Save this giant baba for a special
celebration that calls for an impressive dessert that is syrupy and rich."

1. Scald the milk in a small sauce pan and let cool to room temperature.
2. Add the milk and all remaining ingred. for the baba in the order
SUGGESTED by YOUR bread machine manual and process on the basic bread
cycle according to the manufacturer's directions. 3. Make a syrup by
boiling the sugar & water together in a small saucepan until the mixture
is clear. Add the rum and simmer for 1 minute. 4. When the bread cycle
ends, remove the warm baba to a deep dish or shallow bowl. Brush the baba
with the syrup several times as it cools. Allow the baba to soak up the
syrup that collects in the bottom of the dish. Refrigerate until chilled.
5. When cool, slice the baba into wedges and brush them with any remaining

syrup if they are not totally moist. Serve with unsweetened whipped cream
on the side.

(my note to you: I copied the recipe just AS IS from the book. I have not

made it. The "2/3 C whipped cream 1 cup" was written just that way. It
probably means it is 2/3 C. before whipping and 1 cup after whipping. See,

it Pays to ask questions on this board! Bev in MN Baking with a Pana 1.5#
