Babki Smietankowe (filled Baba)

Babki Smietankowe (filled Baba)

Babki Smietankowe is a delightful Polish cake filled with creamy custard. Na zdrowie!

  • 2 cups butter/margarine; room temp
  • 1 cup sugar granulated
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 egg whites
  • 2 1/2 cups flour all-purpose
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup sugar granulated
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

1. Beat butter at high speed of an electric mixer. Gradually add sugar creaming until fluffy. Beat in whole eggs and 2 egg whites. Stir in flour and mix well. Combine all custard ingredients in the top of a double boiler or a heavy saucepan (you can also cook the custard in the microwave). Cook and stir until custard is thickened; set aside to cool a few minutes.

2. Generously grease muffin pan cups; coat with fine dry bread crumbs. Line each cup with 1 tablespoon of the baba dough. Spoon in 2 tablespoons of the custard and top with more dough. Beat reserved egg white until just foamy and brush top of each baba. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.


Yields 18 babas.

I can never look at babka without thinking of the Seinfeld episode set mostly in a bakery where Jerry and Elaine are buying something for dessert for a dinner party they're attending. This recipe is not a traditional babka, but it is a nice dessert. The custard filling is a nice addition, and I'm also curious as to what the sauce on top might be, since the recipe doesn't mention it. Maybe a light caramel sauce of some sort?

What is the sauce that is on top in the picture?
