tenants / Small Batch Babka
Small Batch Babka, run by Pasha, is a tiny micro-bakery, specialising in making babka (and other American inspired sweet treats) which began life as a lockdown delivery service from a home kitchen in 2021.
Small Batch Babka has since evolved into a travelling micro-bakery, popping up at local coffee shops, gastropubs (The Crown), and at markets in Hastings & St Leonards. Small Batch Babka also offers a wholesale service to a range of local businesses and continues to offer home delivery (and collection from the unit) for all occasions (including bespoke babka wreaths).
Babka (baked as a twisty loaf or as buns) is a bread-like cake hailing from Poland and the Jewish communities of Eastern-Europe. It was brought over to America by immigrants in the 19th century where it became a staple of many Jewish bakeries and continues to be today. At Small Batch Babka, Pasha likes to go beyond the traditional to incorporate a range of fillings in her babka inspired by her dual cultural heritages, and love of food from all over the world.
