Peanut Butter & Jelly Babka...third attempt

This time I skipped the streusel because I was wanting to try a different peanut butter filling and I didn't want to use up more peanut butter than necessary. As a pleasant surprise, the smooth top was attractive. I egg washed it after the second rise, and it created a tender top crust that I really liked. Hmm, now the streusel is in question too! 

As for the peanut butter filling, it was no longer crackly! It stayed smooth and creamy. It was a mixture of 2/3 c peanut butter with 1 c of brown sugar. It was a little sweeter than I would have liked, and parts of it were heavy. The heaviness caused the layers to collapse in places. Next time I will try it with a little less sugar. Hopefully it will be creamy, not too sweet, and not too heavy. I don't think that's too much to ask! :)
