Chocolate Babka

This chocolate babka is the stuff dreams are made of…ok, maybe its just the Nutella inside. I love eating a slice for breakfast with my coffee! One loaf never lasts an entire day around here, it is too delicious. I make the dough in my Thermomix® using the knead function, then spread the Nutella on top and twist it around (see my YouTube video for the tutorial below).

Babka is a sweet Jewish bread and can be made many different ways. The most popular babka recipes include chocolate babka and cinnamon babka – yum!
