Caramel Apple Cake

Chocolate ganache, chocolate brownie crumbles, and van leer chocolate, wrapped up in cream cheese pastry and sprinkled with cocoa sugar. As indulgent as a Jewish grandmother!
Babka is back, baby! So what is it? Babka, which means little grandmother in Yiddish, is a traditional Jewish loaf of sweet bread. It all started when nuts and seeds were twisted up with scraps of challah dough on Shabbat, then it evolved into the modern-day chocolate version when Jews arrived in New York. Variations can be found by other names throughout Eastern Europe. There’s a lot going on in our babka. We start with a rich buttery brioche dough, paint it with dark chocolate, sprinkle it with chocolate crumble and orange syrup-soaked raisins, twist it up, and carefully place that work of art in the pan. The loaf is baked to a golden brown with a fragrant cinnamon-sugar top. We’ll go a long way for full flavor! A slice of our dark chocolate raisin babka is great for morning coffee, evening dessert, afternoon tea time, or any time. Warming it up a little would be nice too. Enjoy!

Cabbage & Goose Fat Rétes
Retes is a favorite Hungarian flavor we discovered during our time in Budapest. It’s just a few ingredients cabbage, goose fat, salt, and pepper—but lots of flavor. Why goose fat? Geese are a favorite protein in Hungary, lots of foie gras is on restaurant menus, and it’s possible to find all things goose in the meat markets. Goose fat is understandably a commonly used fat. It adds a distinctive roasted poultry flavor to this savory treat.
Apple Rétes—returns 9/26
The most well known Hungarian of the rétes family (that’s Hungarian for strudel), classic apple. Just like song My Favorite Things lists, “warm apple strudel.” Inside that powder sugar-dusted, golden brown, flaky exterior is an aromatic filling of Michigan apples, a pinch of cinnamon, a dash of nutmeg and a little cane sugar. It’s a sweet slice of tradition.
