Greens Babka wins in SeriousNYEats Review

If you need more evidence of the Greens babka great quality, then this article from "Serious NY Eats" is for YOU!

The Best Traditional Babka
Green's chocolate babka.

20100226-babka-greens2.jpg When forming a master list of the competing babkas (would the plural be babkae?) it became clear that most roads led back to one bakery in Williamsburg. Green's supplies the majority of the babka you see at markets and delis across the city, not to mention the country (including California, Texas, and beyond). Though some places get rid of their packaging, faking it as their own in-house creation, odds are it's from Green's.

Green's churns out roughly 2,000 loaves of babka a day

As the leader of the babka market, Green's churns out roughly 2,000 loaves of babka a day (except Saturday). Chocolate is the bigger seller, no contest. But their cinnamon—as moist as the best cinnamon roll, but with thinner, more delicate layers—would make Elaine rethink her "lesser" comment.

"Babka is the next doughnut" said Juda Ackerman, one of the partners in the 25-year-old Green family business (they work in a tiny office space attached the kosher bakery). Though they also bake trays of hamentashen and rugelach to ship all over the country, babka is the biggie here. "Pretty soon you might see us in more coffee shops, not just grocery stores."

Need a good Babka? Greens babka the way to go!

See for yourself

A Quote from the New York Times, Pulished April 11, 2010

Dear Diary:

I was in Houston visiting my daughter. She served a Green’s babka made in Brooklyn, which I love and used to bring back to my home in Los Angeles from Zabar’s every time I was in New York. So we went to her local market; I bought two and put them in my suitcase.

When flying home, my carry-on and I went through security — and got pulled aside. The guard apologetically explained that he would have to check my suitcase.

“You have food items in it, don’t you?” he asked.

“Yes,” I said, a bit baffled. “Coffee cakes.”

“They’re very dense,” he said.

“Indeed they are!” I said.

He pulled my two cinnamon babkas out of the suitcase. “We couldn’t see through them on the X-ray,” he said.

“That’s why they’re so good,” I replied, laughing.

He swabbed them for explosives (yes, I’m serious), then said they would have to go through the X-ray machine again, but he added, “Maybe we can get them warm and toasty for you!”

So hooray for New York’s own Green’s babka, the only babka too dense to make it through airport security!
