Chocolate Babka Morning Buns
FROM MICHELLE LOPEZ OF HUMMINGBIRD HIGH Michelle Lopez, of desserts and baking blog Hummingbird High, baked up this recipe by combining three beloved breakfast treats: babka, morning buns, and cinnamon rolls. It involves yeasted bread, which can be intimidating, but if you remember these three guidelines, you’ll be fine. First, do not heat the buttermilk above 110°F. Second, when rolling out the dough, the longer you make your rectangle, the prettier your rolls will be. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but try to make twenty inches work. Lastly, it may seem like a lot of sugar syrup, but be patient and keep brushing the buns until they absorb all of the liquid. This little bit of extra effort gives these buns a whole lotta gooey goodness.
