The Nutella Babka is essentially a bread/cake that is extremely delicious and is prepared by braiding and baking the dough. The Babka finds its roots primarily among the European Jewish community. Of course, chocolate and Nutella are versions that were added and developed later in time. The interesting aspect of preparing the Nutella Babka is braiding it. I have added a small video clip of me braiding the dough. I’m so excited to share this recipe with all of you! I prepared this twice and the family gobbled the whole bread within a day!

You will surely fall in love with this delicious preparation and it shall put you out of your baking comfort which filling and twisting this loaf of goodness!
