Peanut Butter & Jelly Babka...second attempt

I tried a new babka recipe for the dough. I didn't like it as much, but I'm glad I tried it because it gives me more confidence that the other recipe is a keeper. 

For the strawberry swirl, I blended together strawberry jam and freeze dried strawberries. The result is just what I had hoped it would be! The color was bright, and the flavor was jammy. The berries also helped to thicken the mixture. This helped it to stay put and not run to the bottom of the loaf. Yay!

I also brushed the top with an egg wash before putting on the peanut butter streusel. That seemed to help more of it adhere. 

Next time I want to work on rolling them a bit tighter, and I want to try to make the peanut butter swirl more creamy after it's baked. 

I really enjoy these "attempts". Thanks for indulging me and following along. :)
