The Thanksgiving holiday may be less than a month away, but do not forget to enjoy the season. Hanukkah isn’t far behind.
Hanukkah candles will light up the future as the darkness descends earlier and longer with each passing day. It’s a time to bask in the warm glow of the menorah, flames flickering in the breeze, and indulge in the sweetest of traditions. For a fresh take on the traditional hanukkiah, I’ve got just the thing that’s full of the holiday spirit… And more importantly, chocolate. Enter the Babka MenorahThe most delicious way to pay tribute to the festival of light.
Embrace tradition through a modern lens
To truly appreciate the Babka Menorah, it’s essential to explore the rich tapestry of Jewish baking. The dough is a subtle variation of my favorite challah recipe. It’s slightly enriched with milk substitutes to create a buttery, tender treat. The challah is braided, then glazed with egg wash. Babka is a coiled masterpiece. With each bite, its layers of velvety chocolate and cocoa-spiked powder reveal themselves. This dessert is a must for any dinner menu.
