Light Chocolate Babka

+ Free Shipping

A traditional Hungarian Jewish bakery, Oneg Bakery was started by two sisters who came to Brooklyn in the mid-1940s as refugees of World War II. Now run by their grandchildren, the bakery has been feeding the local Jewish community for years. More recently, their Double Chocolate Babka exploded onto the food scene as the world’s densest babka.

For those who prefer babka with an even ratio of chocolate:bread, this “light” version is for you. The New York Times calls this “spectacular chocolate babka” for good reason. A traditional Hungarian loaf of braided dough is layered over and over again with a homemade mix of Dutch process cocoa and sugar that forms an insanely delicious chocolate filling. This loaf contains half as much chocolate as the Double Chocolate Babka.
