Ahhhhhh! I spent my whole day off working on this thing, and right after its last rise and Dyl and I admired it for a few seconds, I proudly picked it up to put it in the oven, it slipped out of my grasp and splattered all over the floor. Not only was my day's work wasted and my pan shattered, I don't get any babka.
I'll be back tomorrow with a recipe. Don't expect the babka.
