  • Combine flour, yeast and 1/4 cup sugar in large bowl. Add cream cheese, butter, milk, whole egg and egg yolk; beat with mixer until mixture forms soft dough.
  • Place dough on lightly floured surface; knead 5 min. or until smooth and elastic. Shape into ball. Place in bowl sprayed with cooking spray; turn. Cover tightly with plastic wrap. Let rise in warm place 1 to 2 hours or until doubled in volume. Meanwhile, combine chopped chocolate, cinnamon and remaining sugar.
  • Punch down dough; place on floured surface. Roll out to 16-inch square. Reserve 1/4 cup chocolate mixture; sprinkle dough with remaining chocolate mixture to within 1 inch of edges.
  • Line 8x4-inch loaf pan with parchment; spray with cooking spray. Roll up dough into log; pinch ends together to seal. Hold both ends of log, then twist several times in opposite directions. Bring both short ends together to fold dough in half; pinch ends together to seal. Hold both ends to twist roll twice; place in prepared pan. Cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in warm place 30 min. to 1 hour or until nearly doubled in volume.
  • Heat oven to 350ºF. Uncover dough. Bake 40 to 45 min. or until bread is golden brown, sprinkling with reserved chocolate mixture after 20 min. Cool bread in pan 10 min. Remove to wire rack; cool completely.

Size Wise

Balance out your food choices throughout the day so you can enjoy a slice of this chocolatey babka.

Where to Place the Dough to Rise

If you don't have a warm or draft-free place for you to place the dough to rise, you can turn your oven on to 100ºF for 5 min. Turn oven off, then place the dough in the warm, not hot, oven to rise until doubled as directed.

Note

Since the rich dough is quite soft you can use your hand mixer to mix the bread ingredients before kneading by hand as directed. If you have a dough hook attachment for your standard mixer, you can instead use that to knead the dough.

Food Facts

Don't worry if the rolled up dough tears slightly as it is twisted. The babka is very forgiving so any tears will be hidden by the swirls in the baked bread loaf.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Impressive I made two loaves of this bread, one for myself and one to give as a gift. My family loved this bread so much I had to make another loaf for the gift, they ate both loaves I made. This bread is good warm or completely cooled.
