Sour Cream Babka
Easter babkas–enriched yeast breads studded with dried fruits and nuts–are classics on Russian and Polish Easter tables. For a more traditional babka, omit the amaretto and use dried sour cherries and candied cherries in place of cranberries and raisins.

In Russian Orthodox homes, Easter traditional calls for tall loaves of sweet kulich. Baked in a coffee can or bowl, kulich has a shape meant to resemble the domes of Russia's Orthodox churches. After being iced, the bread is topped with raisins to form the letters "XB," meaning "Christ has risen."
