Chocolate Kokosh (aka Simple Babka)
Chocolate kokosh, a simple version of babka, bakes quickly and tastes delicious.
Frimet Goldberger, aka The Babka Lady, reminisced about the easier and faster kokosh of her mother’s baking: It was “the cake my siblings and I would covertly nibble at from my mother’s hidden stash of delicacies in the basement freezer.” In her childhood, the kokosh was always chocolate, “perfect for dunking in cold milk,” she said in a phone conversation. Now she makes and ships her chocolate or cream cheese kokosh out of her own home kitchen.
The Williamsburg babka haven, Oneg Heimishe Bakery, now at its summer home in Monticello NY, also bakes a yummy chocolate kokosh.
Enjoy this easy bake treat in your own summer or winter home.
