How To Make Chocolate Babka with Breads Bakery

Edan Leshnick of Breads Bakery in NYC makes decadent chocolate babka in the Munchies Test Kitchen. Edan starts with the dough, made with whole milk, eggs, sugar, salt, vanilla, butter, yeast, and two kinds of flour. The mixture is blended slowly in a stand-up mixer to form the babka’s stretchy gluten texture.

After letting the it rest, Edan rolls the dough into a long, thin sheet, spreads on a layer of Nutella, and sprinkles in chocolate chips. Then, Edan rolls the dough tightly into a roulade to create lots of layers. After cutting his roulade in half, he braids the dough into its famous babka shape, places it into molds, and bakes. Finally, when the babkas come out of the oven, he covers the crust with his simple syrup resulting in a sweet, caramelized treat you won’t want to share.
