Exploring Philly // Essen Bakery

I had been meaning to go to Essen Bakery since they opened last year. Founder and head baker Tova du Plessis, who specializes in Jewish baked goods, is most famous for her amazing chocolate babka.

I had never tried babka before, and it did not disappoint. It pulls apart like a cinnamon roll, and the chocolate is gooey and melts all over your fingers.

I am putting chocolate babka on my baking to-do list this year (see my Pinterest board here for the full list) – so stay tuned!
