Pecan Pie Babka

Pecan Pie Babka

This babka recipe uses pecans, maple syrup, brown sugar, and cinnamon in the filling. It boasts a chocolate-y, fudge-like filling reminiscent of a gooey pecan pie, and with its impressive swirls and crunchy nut topping it sure is impressive to look at.

Pecan Pie Babka tastes like a rich buttery dough that just melts in your mouth. It’s similar to cinnamon rolls but it’s a little bit fluffier and richer. This is due to the amount of butter added to the dough and since it’s at room temperature, you get a smooth buttery texture as opposed to a flakey one.

Classic babka is filled with chocolate which pairs so well. The chocolate is slightly bitter which balances out the sweetness and creaminess of the loaf. Plus, chocolate adds a great contrast to those beautiful swirls!

There are endless amounts of fillings you could use for babka. There’s chocolate hazelnut, cinnamon sugar, rum raisin, maple bacon, peanut butter banana…I mean the list goes on and on. I’m even getting some more inspiration here! It’s such a gorgeous dessert but takes much less effort than you think.
