Baking Challenge

Chocolate Bread

Give your bread a name and tell us about your recipe.

Chocolate Babka – this recipe came from The NY Times. It’s a traditional yeast bread and took a looooong time to make, but it was fun and definitely got me to try something new.

Would you describe yourself as a rogue baker, or do you strictly adhere to the recipe?

When I’m trying something new, I follow recipes to the letter, but with old favorites I use whatever is in the cupboards and improvise a lot.

Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist to your bread creation.

Well, I just moved away from Wisconsin, so this recipe is kind of a fun fusion of my grandma’s coffee cake and Seinfeld’s chocolate babka. Getting into the East Coast spirit. 🙂

How did you do?

Pleasantly satisfied.
