I loved it.. My grandmother (babka) used to make these, but she omitted the raisins and used a single pitted cherry instead.. DELICIOUS!

Its very rare that I give something 5 stars, but this one deserves it. I had lots of cottage cheese to use so I made one batch and that was eaten up so i decided to make another- will make again and again and again, also good to put jam on top if you run out of topping.
