Babka Fillings

Cinnamon Sugar
2 tablespoons sweet softened butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Combine all ingredients with a fork until crumbly.

Chocolate Babka
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup melted sweet butter

Combine together cocoa and sugar. Brush surface of dough with melted butter. Sprinkle with cocoa/sugar mixture. (If you like, you can sprinkle with 1/3 cup chopped pecans).

Cheese Babka
8 ounces farmer cheese
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1 large egg yolk
2 teaspoons grated orange zest or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine together all ingredients mixing well. Spread on surface of dough. (If you like, you can add 1/4 cup raisins after you spread the cheese.)

Mom's Crumb's
2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup butter

Combine all ingredients well.

Poppy Seed Filling
1 pound poppy seeds
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter
1 cup hot milk
Grated lemon rind from 1 lemon

Combine all of the ingredients and beat well. Set aside until ready to use. (I always make this in advance and let it sit).

Ground Nut Filling
Basically the same as above, except you omit the lemon. Mom once in a while would add some vanilla and, if she used almonds, she would add some almond extract (don't add too much as almond extract is very potent).

1 pound ground nuts, your choice
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter
1 cup hot milk

Combine all of the ingredients and beat well. Set aside until ready to use. (I always make this in advance and let it sit.)
