Chocolate Snack Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
I turned this into "Chocolate Breakfast Cake" with these modifications: I melted butter into 1 c milk on the stovetop. We have an egg allergy so I subbed for 1 egg with Ener-G Egg Replacer (a powder mixed w/water), 1 Tablespoon pure vanilla, 1 cup fresh ground hard white wheat flour (I have a mill), 1/2 c Coconut Crystals (low glycemic coconut sugar- I like Coconut Secret brand), raw cacao powder, 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder, 3 dropper fulls of liquid stevia. By using whole grain and low/no glycemic sweeteners it became healthy enough for breakfast...way better than pop tarts/donuts/sugar cereal, and no sugar sprinkles/frosting needed. It was done in 20 minutes, nice loft, nice crumb and all mixed by hand in one bowl. Success!

Chocolate Babka

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
I had never had a Babka before despite my Polish upbringing, but gave it a try. My 2 & 4 year olds helped. We used 2 cups white whole wheat flour for the all-purpose flour, chocolate chips for the baking chocolate squares, & sucanat (dehydrated sugar cane juice crystals) for the white sugar. We thought it was good but not spectacular. My loaves baked very well but I would bake the loaves separately next time for better doneness control. One ended up more done than the other despite my rotating during baking and careful monitoring. This recipe inspired me to keep trying heritage recipes, looking for ultimate keepers.
