Chocolate Crumble Babka








“This┬átravelling is all well and good” I hear you cry,” but where’s the cake?”

Well dearies do not fear as I’ve got this scrum-didly-umptious Chocolate Babka for you today.

A Babka is a yeasted bread dough swirled with a yummy filling so it comes out more like a cake, perfect for slicing at tea time. Family recipes for Babka are often handed down from grannies with special secret ingredients. I believe it’s history comes from the Jewish community.

The traditional way to top a Babka is with a crumble mixture but I wanted something deeper than normal to match the Babka’s rich contents. I turned to my friend and crumble maker extraordinaire Cat for crumble consulting and we came up with this recipe which you can find on her blog.

Terrible picture but I wanted you to see the swirl!
