The Best Vegemite Babka

Babka, but make it with Vegemite.

I am so excited to share my latest recipe with you, my Vegemite Babka! For those of you who don't know, babka is a sweet braided bread which originated in the Jewish communities of Poland and Ukraine. It's usually enjoyed at breakfast or for dessert, and cinnamon, chocolate and Nutella is by far the most popular addition to this wonderful bread.

Over time there have literally been thousands of sweet and savoury iterations, however I wanted to give this beautifully traditional babka my own spin. We had just bought a new jar of Vegemite and it was on the same day I decided to bake my babka. I was going to combine Nutella and cinnamon, but on a crazy last minute whim, I decided to use Vegemite. But I didn't stop there. I wanted to pay homage to the traditional babka and added a delicious, classic streusel on top, which is a buttery, sugary, flour crumb that you would find on an apple pie or an apple crumble.

I honestly can't express in words how decadent, and delicious, and complex this Vegemite Babka tastes. The beautiful swirls of Vegemite mixed with the buttery crumb is like nothing I've ever tasted before - it's sweet, it's savoury, it's insanely delicious and addictive. It's the perfect recipe to make on a rainy day, or when you're stuck at home, or when you want to enjoy a slow day of baking (my favourite kind of day).
