Polish Bread: Boulka (Bułka)

My family came from southeastern Poland in the early 1900s and many of the traditions have been kept alive in the family. During the holiday, we would always have a delicious moist white bread with raisins that we called "bouka". I've seen many recipes for babka, but none for bouka. Are these the same thing with a different name? Does anyone else use this name? Recipes?

Bułka is just a word for bread rolls and light bread. For example Bułka Paryska is the French Baguette.

Is this similar?

Thanks! That looks like the bread. I remember the Polish bakery in my town used to make this bread and it was moist and stringy--I'm not sure how they got it to be like that, but it was delicious!

I thought I lost you there for a minute. If you want to make this at home, post for a recipe translation and someone will help, maybe even me.

We are like cultural attaches without the perks. :)

My grandma came from the southern part of Poland, and her bulka recipe was used to make a horseshoe-shaped bread with apples enclosed and a rum-flavored frosting on top. Just made one today!

I lost my mother's recipe and was looking for the best Boulka recipe, when I got a laugh out of how GoogleTM Translate worked on boulka paska babka:
