Russ & Daughters: Chocolate Babka

November 19, 2007


As varied as my eating habits may be, there are few select food items that I oft return to over and over again. The chicken curry funn at BoKy, Pinisi’s red velvet cake, the cubano at El Castillo de Jagua, and the pizza biancafrom Sullivan St Bakery. None of them share much in common aside from the fact that they’re priced under $5, and they make me happy. Very happy.

But! I’ve found something else to add to this list. A baked good, nonetheless! A chocolately, sweet baked good. THE CHOCOLATE BABKA – the siren of all morning treats. It’s sold by the (generous) slice for $3.50 at Russ & Daughters. You could opt to get a whole loaf, but knowing me, I’d polish off it all off in one seating. And then get a heart attack. I’m admittedly terrible when it comes to self-control with baked goods. Heehee…we all have our vices! Oh god, but this is incredible, melted dark chocolate brushed upon layers of rich buttery dough with just a hint of cinnamon. The lightest lace of streusel tops it off for a truly gorgeous treat. Shades of brown, dark chocolate, soft cinnamony innards, and a slight crust that becomes all the more addictive when you pop the slice in the toaster over for just a bit. Too sweet? Perhaps. Overly decadent? Never.

To balance out the sweet treat, I like to chase my Chocolate Babka with a smoked salmon cream cheese bagel also from Russ & Daughters. And then if you want more dessert afterwards, a chocolate covered halvah bar never hurt, and while you’re at it, don’t forget to pick up a square of prune & raisin BAGEL pudding! How can there be so much deliciousness in such a tiny place? Why, we’ll never know!
