Babka is a cake with Eastern European roots and modern gourmet appeal. Over a century ago immigrants to the New World carried their treasured recipes for babka with them across the Atlantic. Since then, babke has held a place of honor among landmark New York bakeries and gourmet shops. But not all cakes that bear the babka name are equal. If you haven’t yet tasted this babka, it is only fair to warn you that once you do, you will never be satisfied with an inferior one. This babka is the one that consistently generates rave reviews for its irresistible combination of delectable flavor and texture.
The chocolate babka is made from yeast dough spread with luscious chocolate filling. The filled dough is twisted to form the swirls of chocolate you see when you slice the loaf. These swirls pack every bite with chocolate rich and dense enough to satisfy the cravings of any chocoholic.
Babka is the perfect accompaniment to a cup of coffee at breakfast or any time you want a satisfying treat in your favorite flavor. If you are able to resist the temptation to keep it all for yourself, buy a loaf or two to set out for friends and family. They’ll really appreciate your thoughtfulness. The loaves freeze well and can be served either room temperature or warmed up slightly.
The babkas are made fresh with all-natural, nut-free ingredient. Certified kosher pareve. The 24 ounce loaf should serve 10-12.
Please note: All our babkas & Rugalech have a shelf life of 6 - 8 weeks and stays fresh in unopened sealed bag for 6 to 8 weeks
