Every month we spotlight a bread or product that we sell in our cafés. We hope you enjoy learning a little about them. Stop by any of our locations to sample these treats and take something home to share.

Chocolate Pecan Babka

Chocolate Pecan Babka

Babka, sometimes known as a ”High Cake,” is Eastern European in origin and steeped in Jewish tradition. Jewish bakers brought their babka recipes to America in the early 20th century. While making babka at home can be very time consuming, it’s easy to find this wonderful bread flavored with cinnamon or chocolate in every major city during the holidays.

Our deeply rich and buttery Chocolate Pecan Babka has the perfect ratio of chocolate to bread in every bite. We roll the brioche-like dough with a bittersweet chocolate glaze and toasted pecans for added depth of flavor, give it a twist to create layers of silky chocolate throughout, and finish it with a crunchy streusel topping. Warm this Chocolate Pecan Babka for just a few minutes and enjoy it with a cup of coffee for a delicious treat any time of day!
