Known to those who watch Canadian TV-series Orphan Black, babka is a traditional Ukrainian sweet yeast cake. This rich in texture sponge treat is often baked specifically for Easter in large quantities – several big ones for the family gathering, and smaller ones to give to relatives, friends and colleagues. Babka often has raisins inside, and is topped with sugar glazing on top. Besides, Ukrainian cuisine has another ‘babka’ (which, by the way, means ‘grandma’ or ‘old woman’) – rum babka. Often sold in shops and kiosks, this is essentially a mini-version of sweet and rich bun, only soaked with rum.
