Forget any babka recipe you have in your repertoire until now. This is the real thing — high as the sky, fluffy, lots of rich chocolate/cinnamon filling, and a creamy melt-in-your-mouth streusel. The best part is that each loaf has just two tablespoons of oil in the dough. Whoever sampled it wanted “just one more sliver,” and the loaf was gone in minutes. It freezes well, so I quickly stored away what was left!
Yields 3 large babkas, approximately 10 slices each
