Three Sandwich Babkas

Delicious, fun, inauthentic.

These are not True Babkas. Yes, they’re all made from babka dough (a simple yeast dough enriched with butter, eggs and milk), but instead of a classic filling, they contain the makings of classic sandwiches. Some people might find these babkas offensive—I mean, two of them contain pork. Like the small print in a pharmaceutical ad: People who are especially particular about babkas, peanut butter and jelly, muffuletta and Cubano sandwiches should consult their doctor before trying these recipes. But I promise that they are delicious, and fun. There’s something so satisfying about rolling out that lovely egg-enriched dough, then twisting it together, trying with moderate success to keep the filling from falling out. Even when you think it’ll be a total mess, it somehow always ends up looking great after it’s baked.
