Chocolate & Biscoff Babka

I've teamed up with De Dietrich to create a series of vegan recipes to show the abilities of their ovens. With a range of different expert cooking settings, I've explored the 'Bread' setting today, and boy did it deliver.... Introducing a beautiful vegan chocolate and cinnamon babka.

This post is created in partnership with De Dietrich as part of a gifted collaboration.

Ingredients

 

3 cups plain flour | 400g

7g packet instant yeast

½ tsp salt

¼ cup |40 g brown sugar

½ cup |100g vegan butter (room temperature)

1 cup | 200g oat milk

¼ cup biscoff spread 

¼ cup chocolate chips 

 


Method

Pour the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir together

 

Add the oat milk and butter to a small bowl and stir until the butter is nice and creamy

 

Add the butter and milk to the dry ingredients and mix together until a loose dough forms

 

Flour your work surface (or you can be lazy and keep it in the bowl) and knead for around 7-8 minutes until a doughy texture has formed then pop back in the bowl, cover with a tea towel and leave in a warm place to rise for around 60 minutes

 

Knock the dough back by giving it another knead for a minute or two, then roll into a 2cm thick rectangle, add the biscoff spread leaving a 4cm edge then top with chocolate chips

 

Roll the dough lengthways into a long sausage shape, then using a sharp knife slice down the middle (lengthways) 

 

Press the ends together and overlap each length to create a twisted pattern (refer to the images if needs be) then pop into a greased loaf tin and allow to prove for another 30 minutes in the baking tin (covered with a tea towel)

 

I had too much dough for one loaf tin, so created a mini loaf with the overspill

 

Preheat the oven to 190ºC and bake for 25-30minutes, stick a knife in the centre and ensure it comes out clean 

 

Allow to cool on a cooling rack for around 30-40 minutes (maybe test the end slice to make sure it’s okay)

 

Enjoy!
