Small Batch Mini Sourdough Babka

Like everyone else on the internet, I’ve been playing around with wild yeast and baking sourdough. I just finished baking my third loaf (each loaf is getting better and better!) and I thought I’d try my hand at some other sourdough goods, like sourdough babka.

Actually, do we need to back up and talk about what babka is? If you haven’t had it before it’s a super rich buttery enriched dough that’s spread with chocolate (or cinnamon), rolled up, twisted, and baked into a lovely loaf of bread-y sweet deliciousness. Babka is everywhere and those beautiful glossy twists of bread made me want to try too.

Sweet, sticky, ribbons of cinnamon all streamed through a soft and fluffy dough. I think I’m addicted to babka baking. Now I just need to figure out the right proportions for my favorite pan. Oh, and I am probably going to work on a chocolate babka, since, you know, this is the lesser babka.
