A chocolate babka recipe in the Eastern European tradition. The yummy chocolate cake is topped with a topping of chocolate chips, pecans and cinnamon.
Altered ingredient amounts. This is a great recipe! I decided to add an extra 4 tbsp soured cream, and an additional 75g chocolate chips. I baked it 15 minutes longer (after covering w/foil) & it turned out moist, chocolaty & delicious. My husband loved it! I will certainly make it again & again! - 18 Jul 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. Just made this. Also added an extra 4 tbsp soured cream (was nervous of it being dry) and put some chocolate chips in the dough. I would suggest using icing sugar for the topping, that is what I have used in the past when I have made a real babka, and it's much easier to dust/stick along the top! Yum! - 18 Jul 2008
