    looks, schmmooks. sounds, schmounds.
    the only authentic and meaningful comments are those that are made by someone who has made the recipe.
    so i made it.
    no on was impressed in my family.
    because this is NOT a Polish honey cake.
    and it certainly is NOT a babka.
    don't know where you got your info from but it's a fail.
    some people might like it but a Pole knows his is not a traditional honey cake.
    Coffee? for damn's sake.
    Coffee? really?
    no.
    not a good one.
    and stop misinforming people.

    This looks really good, I love the honey and lemon combo. I do not drink coffee so I would not buy it. Do you know if there is anything I could successfully substitue for it?

    Yes, Extra Virgin Olive oil does work well, but for those who do not like the flavour of EVOO, vegetable oil does the trick!!!

    Oh yes, this is my kind of cake. Great post.

    I would only suggest extra virgin olive oil instead of vegetable oil, the blends of evoo and honey make a perfect combination.
