    OK, I filled out your form and also bookmarked the babka because it looks amazing!

    I’ve never recipe-tested anything before. I mean, except for my constant making of recipes and then critiquing them. 🙂 But, it sounds fun.

    That is one gorgeous babka. It’s a classic at every family gathering at my house and it would be lovely to be the one making it for once. I really can’t believe you’re doing a cookbook while on leave and it kind of makes you my hero. I can only imagine how lovely time off from the office is. I’d do it just for that. Filling out the form now.

    Your babka is beautiful. I’d love to try it out soon. I was wondering about a recipe you posted quite a while ago, the matcha white chocolate (macadamia?) brownies. Do you remember it? I had it saved to my pinterest account but now I can’t find it. Help! I really want to make those!

    Looking forward to helping if you choose me.
    I just wanted to let you know, the email in my box before yours was also about a cookbook getting ready for release. He has been working on it consistently for 7 years! That might give you a chuckle.
    It called The Artful Baker, releasing in October. It looks as epic as the time it took to write. Here is a link to the story of the book,

    This babka looks amazing! I’ll have to give this recipe a go…being a young mom too, I still don’t know how I get it all done sometimes, but writing a cookbook too, I applaud you! xo

    Love these photos, Cynthia!!! And this is truly one of the most perfect looking babkas ever?? KAF and the likes are always so spot on, providing such a consistently reliable place for all bakers. You mess up your own recipe? Oh well, just go with KAF. 😉
