Babka

Babka
After a mighty long hiatus, 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!
