For Dough

  • 300 gm All Purpose Flour
  • 30 gm Sugar Powdered
  • 40 gm Butter
  • 1/2 tsp Yeast
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 180 ml Milk

For Spread

  • 5 tsp Chocolate Spread
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon Powder


  • In a large kneading bowl add flour, salt, and sugar.
  • Mix everything and make a well in the center. Now add yeast and 50 ml of lukewarm milk. Let it rest for about 5 minutes
  • Once the yeast froths start mixing everything together. Add the rest of the milk and start binding the dough.
  • Knead the babka dough and it will become perfectly elastic, non-sticky, and firm once we the kneading is done.
  • Add butter to the babka dough. Mix it well and keep the dough in a greased bowl. Let it rest until it doubles.
  • Once doubled, punch the dough to release the air. Now take the dough out on a lightly floured surface and roll the dough using rolling pin into a rectangular sheet.
  • Use a spatula or a spoon and spread an even layer of chocolate spread on the dough sheet. Further, sprinkle cinnamon powder.
  • Using a knife or scraper, cut it lengthwise from the center into two equal halves. With the cut side facing up, start braiding.
  • Line a 6x3x3 inches tin with parchment paper and place braided dough in the tin.
  • Cover it and let it rest until dough rises to the rim of the tin.
  • Meanwhile, Keep the oven for preheating at 180 °C.
  • Before baking, brush the dough with milk and then bake it in preheated oven for 25 minutes.
  • When baked completely, take the loaf tin out from oven and immediately demold the bread.
  • Place it on a cooling rack. Let the baked Babka rest for 2 hrs before slicing.


  1. The amount of milk can vary depending upon four quality and weather conditions. So in case you are adding extra milk, please add 2 tbs at a time.
  2. I have used homemade chocolate spread, however, you can use market made sauce or Nutella for same.
  3. Replacing all-purpose flour with any other flour can change the results. Feel free to experiment.
  4. Baking time can vary depending upon your oven model and size. So keep an eye.
