Chocolate Cheese Babka
Let's get back to babkas! Oh yes, you can eat your cake and have it, too! This Babka was conceived in my own kitchen from the glorious union of two of the most amazing pastry ingredients—chocolate and cream cheese. This combination elevates traditional babka to a whole new level. I use the finest Dutch cocoa, Belgian chocolate chips, cream cheese, and real vanilla beans. The dough is made with the freshest ingredients, and its yeasty inside and crisp exterior tastes like no other. The thin layers of dough and thick chocolate coating on one side, sweet and creamy cheese coating on the other, are rolled into a tight log and topped with a crispy, buttery 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 two days at room temperature. They can be refrigerated for up to one week, as well. At two and a quarter pounds, this loaf serves eight to ten. Due to the risk of spoilage, cream cheese items are not available for orders outside the NY - NJ - CT tri-state area. Please check the map to see if your address is in the 1-day shipping zone.
