This Chocolate Babka Recipe is a sweet bread recipe with a ribbon of chocolate chips (or melted chocolate) throughout the bread. This recipe makes two loaves.
I love how moist and dense this bread is.It has a good dose of butter in it, chocolate and sugar, it might not be “health” bread but I like to call it my favorite, “mental-health” bread because it always makes me feel better.
A babka is a sweet braided bread or cake which originated in the Jewish communities of Poland and Ukraine.
