This is a babka cheat, but no one will complain that it just took a few minutes to put it together. I just used a piece of whole wheat brioche dough, slathered it with Nutella, rolled it up, tucked it into a loaf pan, let it rest and baked it. That’s it. Super Easy. Super Tasty. Super Fast. And Beautiful.
Check out the Swirly Crock Pot version as well. It is perfect for hot summer days or when your oven is occupied with other goodies.
I went pretty light on the Nutella, so the bread would have a bit of chocolatey sweetness, but wouldn’t be over-the-top. You can use more and go with our brioche dough from New ABin5, for a more decadent treat. (more…)
