Bring milk to a boil. Stir in first flour measurement. Cook over
medium heat until mixture resembles mashed potatoes, stirring
constantly. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

Add all ingredients except the last three, according to manufacturer's
instructions. Process on normal bread cycle.

At last beep at end of last mixing beep, or at end of first kneading
cycle, add raisins/or nuts, cinnamon and brown sugar.

Cool for at least 30 minutes in machine. This firms the bread.

For a more traditional Babka, omit cocoa powder, orange zest.

Add grated lemon zest 1 TBS 1 1/2 TBS

Use raisins (no nuts)

This is pretty with a light chocolate or white glaze on top.
