Sunday morning

6.40 a.m. I bolted awake. Why? Who knows…..

I came home from last evening’s concert and made the enriched yeast dough for cinnamon & brown sugar babkas.

So this morning has been occupied at the kitchen counter, mixing filling and prepping the pans, rolling dough, twisting and prepping the babkas. They go in the oven momentarily.

I’ll post after they are finished and I have a photo to share.
