Chocolate Syrup Bread Cake

Shayla Greveni
This chocolate syrup cake is made from the same ingredients as a chocolate babka! Instead of using a dark chocolate filling, it's filled with chocolate syrup. It's delicious and incredibly easy to create.

  • 1/2 Babka Dough
  • 4 tbsp Chocolate Syrup
  • Confectioners' Sugar, for dusting
  • Avocado Oil, for spraying
  • All Purpose Flour, for kneading & dusting


  • Make the babka dough! This will take 24 hours to make. If you don't want to wait 24 hours, just let the dough sit in the fridge for 8-12 hours. 
  • The next day, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a round pan with avocado oil and 1 tbsp of all purpose flour. Wipe the excess flour with a paper towel and spread it all over the pan. 
  • After allowing the dough to sit in the fridge, flour a surface and knead the dough. The dough should be put into a circular shape. Fill the dough with chocolate syrup (lightly, do not add too much, leave the center completely opened!) After filling with chocolate syrup, carefully wrap one side over the other. After kneading the dough, place a biscuit cutter into the center of the dough. Using the biscuit cutter as a guide, cut the dough into strips. Cut each strip into halfs. Proceed to twist each strip over the other. Then after doing that, remove the biscuit cutter and twist the entire dough around each other. The shape should be circular. Spray the bread with avocado oil.
  • Bake in the oven for 25 minutes. When done, remove from oven and spray with avocado oil. Top with confectioners' sugar.
