I don’t have a lot of things in common with Oprah. I don’t have my own TV network or magazine, and I don’t have the ability to give out cars to a full studio audience. But, just like Oprah, I. LOVE. BREAD.
Especially if that bread also contains chocolate, cinnamon, and pecans, and is personal sized (though sometimes a full loaf can also be personal sized if you try hard enough). So naturally, when a craving for something sweet hit me one Friday night, I decided to make myself some mini chocolate babka buns. The final results were perfectly sized, fluffy, swirled brioche-esque rolls with the perfect proportion of filling to bread.
