Babka is a sweet spongy yeast cake that is traditionally baked for Easter Sunday. Babka originated in Eastern Europe and was introduced to North America by early immigrants. Traditional babka has some type of fruit filling, especially raisins, and is glazed with a fruit flavored icing, sometimes with rum added. Modern babka may be chocolate or have a cheese filling.

Despite its Christian associations, babka is also popular among Jews, particularly those with family origins in Eastern Europe.

Babka was a plot point in episode 77 of Seinfeld, in which the main characters try to buy a chocolate babka for a dinner party but have to settle for a cinnamon one instead. They argue with the couple who purchased the last chocolate babka, before realising they are all attending the same dinner party.
