Babka Question: Would it be a sin...
I always try to follow the rules, except when there's a reason not to. I'm going to make Babka for the first time. Chocolate and Cinnamon. I'm using Stan's recipe, from Glezer (http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/10196/all-that039s-left-chocolate-babka), as a guide.
My question is whether I would risk the wrath of the god of Jewish baking if I put chopped pecans in my Babka filling. I've never seen a Babka recipe with nuts, but my wife thinks it would be a good idea, and I usually love, honor and obey her, as I promised to do so many years ago. But if I'm going to commit some sort of religio-culinary misfeasance, I at least want to know in advance. My moral compass is spinning.
Please help with any advice.
