Happy second Easter Day y’all! 🐣 Comfort your sweet tooth with this babka! It is perfect to bake during your day off! Good luck with baking, and do not forget to tag us in the result! ❤️ Ingredients ———————————————— 400 g bittersweet chocolate 500 g flour 225 ml milk 50 ml heavy cream 2 eggs 1 egg yolk 130 g butter (room temperature) 15 g fresh yeast 130 g sugar 20 g confectioner’s sugar 30 g unsweetened cocoa powder 2 tsp vanilla extract ⅛ tsp salt flour (for dusting) Preparation method ———————————————— Step 1: Add some milk, fresh yeast, half of the vanilla extract, most of the sugar, and the eggs to a large bowl. Whisk to combine. Add flour, salt, and some butter to the mixture. Mix then use your hands to knead into a smooth dough. On a flour-dusted work surface, form the dough into a ball. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rise for approx. 30 min. Step 2: For the filling, melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water. Once melted, remove from heat and mix in remaining butter, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, and powdered sugar until a homogeneous mixture forms. Let cool completely. For the glaze, heat remaining milk and sugar together until all the sugar dissolves, then set aside. Step 3: Preheat oven to 165ºC/325°F and grease a loaf pan. Roll out dough into a rectangle and spread evenly with chocolate filling. Roll up the dough tightly along one long side to the other long side. Halve the roll with a bread knife lengthwise, then weave two parts together, making sure the side with chocolate filling is always facing up. Transfer braided dough to prepared loaf pan and let rest for approx. 1 hr. Step 4: Whisk egg yolk with heavy cream, then brush dough surface with the mixture. Transfer to oven and bake for approx. 35 – 40 min. Brush prepared glaze directly on chocolate babka when it's done. Let cool then slice and enjoy! #easter #isaleeuwarden #leeuwarden #nhlstenden
