Which is why we were so freaking excited when we found something that was the perfect combination of those three things: APPLE BABKA (!!!) with honey, raisins, and nuts.

The babka is made and sold at Breads Bakery in NYC. It's $14.95 per loaf (or $20 for two loaves), and it's only available in the fall (so, NOW).
