The first time I tried the grandma when I lived in Miami and worked in kosher food delivery. The very food I have not seen it packed in opaque Thermo, but I regularly checks the position of watching «CHOCOLATE BABKA» (chocolate babka). This inscription has introduced me to a screeching halt, because there is nothing similar in the menu of the cafe I have not seen. After a month of work, I could not resist and decided to order a grandmother for themselves. I did not have any idea what might be inside.

In the evening I took his freshly baked order, took a thermos of coffee and went to the ocean to watch the sunset and try grandmother. It turned out that it is necessary to Granny. It was incredibly airy brioche dough stuffed with dark chocolate. Washed down with hot coffee grandmother, I was admiring the sunset and quietly ate half a serving.

The next morning I tried to persuade the owner of the cafe to share with me a recipe for Grandma, but he was adamant. At that time, I worked a lot and cook in a rented apartment I had no time. When I returned to Russia, about grandma, I forgot.

Recently, my friends, we brought food, opened his bakery. Their pastry chef shared the recipe with me. I tried it, a bit modified by the realities of Russia today and share with you. Meet - chocolate babka!
