Polish babka recipe is reaching the peak of its popularity during Easter time. This delicious cake is eaten all over the country and it’s loved by Poles of all ages. In this post, I want to share with you the authentic Polish babka recipe.

About Polish Easter Babka

There are 4 kinds of Polish Easter babka:

  • babka piaskowa (sandy babka) – the most popular Easter babka; it’s wet and delicious
  • babka marmurkowa (marble babka)- it’s almost the same as babka piaskowa; the only difference is that it has 2 colors, black and white
  • babka cytrynowa – it’s basically babka piaskowa with lemon flavor (here’s my Polish lemon babka recipe)
  • babka pomarańczowa – babka with orange flavor (here’s my Polish orange babka recipe)
  • babka drożdżowa (yeast babka) – it’s dry and made of yeast (see my raisin yeast babka recipe)

The recipe for the first three Polish babkas are almost the same – you will find it at the end of this post.
