Babka

I love bread, but there's bread and then there is bread with chocolate (aka chocolate babka).. a rich, buttery brioche loaf swirled with a decent quality chocolate and brushed with egg. I invited over an old friend for a late morning cuppa and this was just the thing for the rainy Saturday a few weeks back.

Baked in a parchment lined stoneware (my favourite) loaf pan, it's tempting to remove it from the oven before it is baked. If it seems to be browning too much or too quickly for your liking, a bit of aluminium foil over the top will do the trick.

I suspect it might but honestly cannot tell you if this makes good toast or not.

ciao!
