Orange & Chocolate Babka

Babka is definitely one of the trendiest and tastiest baked goods of the moment. This week, I suggest you test this amazing orange and chocolate babka to spice things up. I went for bitter orange and chocolate chips since these two flavours go so well together. Added bonus, the orange jam add some moisture to the babka and a subtle bitter sweet taste.

Let's get baking !



  • 530 g flour (4 2/3 cups)

  • 100 g sugar (1/2 cup)

  • 1 tbsp yeast and 2 tbsp water

  • 3 large eggs

  • 60 g milk (1/4 cup)

  • 60 g water (1/3 cup)

  • A pinch of salt

  • 150 g butter soft (3/4 cup)

  • Some bitter orange jam (approx. 250 g)

  • Chocolate chips (approx. 150 g)

How To
  • Add in the water to hydrate the yeast, and mix.

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, start by mixing all the ingredients together : the flour, sugar, yeast, eggs, milk, water and salt.

  • When the ingredients are combined, add in the soft butte little by little and mix.

  • Cover the dough with cling wrap and place in the fridge for a whole night or at least 6 hours.

  • Flour the work surface and spread the dough using a rolling pin.

  • Apply the orange jam and sprinkle some chocolate chips.

  • Roll the dough and cut it halfway.

  • Cross one side over the other and repeat until you're out of dough.

  • Split the dough in half to get two babkas and place them in a baking mould.

  • Let rise for an hour in a warm environment.

  • Bake at 165°C/330°F for 20 - 25 min.
