Does anyone have a recipe for Babka?

According to Mollie Katzen in her book Still Life With Menu, Babka is an
East European-style coffee cake, usually made with yeasted dough and a
semisweet filling. It can be considered a cakey bread or a bready cake.

She has a recipe for a Chocolate Babka which she says has a filling like a
working person=B9s version of the classic petit pan au chocolat.

I am trying to adapted her recipe to make a bread machine dough Babka with
a cinnamon-nut-sugar filling. You could save me the trial and error if you
have a proper recipe.
