This babka ($3.50) would go wonderfully with cream cheese or butter, said the presiding lady at this Polish congregation's bake sale. Even discounting the raisins, it was very rich and moist. I don't have any insights into the recipe, but the rings imprinted on its surface make plain where this babka was baked — in a coffee can. Store-bought sweets from Greenpoint were on offer, too.
Also shown: from a later visit, a slice of homemade chocolate-walnut-coconut-pineapple cake ($5); a statue honoring gold star mothers.
