Chocolate Babka
Let there be babka! Born in my grandmother’s kitchen and elevated in my own, this babka is a chocolate lover’s dream. The dough is made with the freshest ingredients, and its yeasty inside and crisp exterior tastes like no other. I use the finest Dutch cocoa, Belgian chocolate chips and real vanilla beans. The thin layers of dough and thick chocolate coating are rolled into a tight log and topped with a crispy streusel. Perfect for your morning coffee, served warm with a scoop of ice cream for dessert, or as a gift to a host! They last up to six months in the freezer and at least a week at room temperature. At two and a quarter pounds, this loaf serves eight to ten.
