Peanut Butter & Jelly Babka...first attempt

The first time I made babka, I made a chocolate babka. It was such a pleasure to make, that my mind started whirling with all kinds of babka dreams. Today I baked a peanut butter and jelly babka with peanut butter streusel.

I thought it would be cool to have the two swirls be two different colors. So, I did one swirl with a peanut butter and honey mixture, and the other swirl was straight strawberry jelly. The flavor is pretty fantastic, but I wasn't wowed by the two colors like I had hoped that I would be. Next time, I will mix the jelly with the peanut butter. I think the flavor and texture will benefit from the tweak. 

The peanut butter streusel topping (unbaked below) was a nice touch. Next time, I'll double the amount. No one complains about too much streusel!

I think more streusel will look more attractive too. With the minimal topping, the finished product looks a bit warty. 

I'll be sure to show you the result of my next experiment. :)
