Think that Nigella Lawson is overrated? Bored with watching “My Kitchen Rules” on TV? Think you are better than the contestants on Masterchef? Then have a go at competing in our “BABOVKA BAKEOFF” !

Never heard of a “Babovka”?

A Babovka is a traditional cake of the Central Europe. In other countries it is also known as gugelhupf, marble cake, pound cake, kuglof, babka or wacka. It may contain chocolate or coconut or poppy seeds. It is baked in a special circular pan originally made of pottery. Deceptively simple, it is an art to get the babovka light and fluffy.

It took some time for us to come up with an idea for the visitor home work activity, but we now know this is a good one!

We are pretty sure every single member of the Czech and Slovak community knows what Babovka is, what it looks like and, most importantly, what it tastes like. But there are only a few chosen ones who know how to make it, and to make it taste like the one from your granny.
