Chocolate and Malt Babka Bites

Yes yes I know Babka is a sweet yeast cake but who said there cant be exceptions 😉 I made these bites based on this reference from the Baking Partners. Swathi is the brilliant blogger behind the group.

baking partnersFor the dough: I made the eggless version

1/2-3/4 cup …. whole milk, warmed 110 degrees

1/4 cup… white sugar

1.5 teaspoons …Active dry yeast

2 cups all purpose flour

1/2… teaspoon salt

4 tablespoons…. unsalted butter at room temperature

For the Filling:

1/2 cup… chocolate chips {I used bournville rich cocoa)

1/4 cup… brown sugar

1/4 cup…. Complan/bourvita

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

pinch of salt

3 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature

For the wash:

1 tbsp.. oil

1 tbsp… Sugar

1 tbsp… cream/milk

Method:

  • Add the yeast to the warm milk with a pinch of sugar.
  • Let it stand and dissolve and froth.
  • Tip the dry ingredients for the dough in a pan, mix with a fork.
  • Make a well in the eventer and tip the milk-yeast mixture.
  • I used hand mixer with dough attachment to bring it all together.
  • Add butter one tbsp at a time.
  • Once it has all come together, tip it on the work bench and work the dough by the heel of the palm by pushing it away and then bringing it back.
  • Once it has become nice and springy, add to an oiled bowl and cover with the cling film.
  • let it rise to double the volume or let it stand for 1.5 hrs or so.
  • For the filling, coarsely chop the chocolate in the mixer, add the complan and sugar.
  • Now mix in the butter. Keep aside until further use.
  • Once the dough has risen, flour the work surface and roll it out in a rectangle of about 1/2 inch thickness.
  • Pre heat oven to 180C.
  • Spread the filling uniformly on the dough.
  • Now roll the dough carefully.
  • Cut 1/5 inch pieces.
  • Put them in a lined cupcake tray individually.
  • Brush with the mix of the wash ingredients.
  • Bake for 20 min.
  • Serve with love.
