"Best Babka in NY" Chocolate 3-Pack
Choose your Delivery Date at Check Out!

Born in Central Europe and elevated in Israel, the loaf-shaped sweet yeast cake known as babka is at its best in New York City—and now your home!—thanks to legendary Danish-Israeli baker Uri Scheft. Uri bakes Breads Bakery’s babka all-day, every day, using cultured butter from France, Nutella and Belgian dark-chocolate chips, all of which he spreads over the dough before braiding it into a traditional babka loaf. Briskly bathed in sugar syrup the minute it’s pulled from the oven to ensure a crisp, burnished crust and immediately shipped overnight for ultimate freshness, the rich, chocolate-veined interior stays deliciously moist for days. Perfect for brunch, dessert or as a delicious host gift (just make sure you keep at least one for yourself!)

Packaging & Delivery

All food from Breads Bakery is shipped for overnight delivery.

All orders are shipped signature release. This means UPS will leave the package at the doorstep, front desk or gate associated with the shipping address without requiring a signature upon delivery. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that the contents of the package are stored in a freezer or refrigerator promptly after delivery. FoodyDirect cannot be responsible for orders with incomplete or invalid addresses, or that are sent to recipients who are not available to store the contents of the order on the day of arrival. UPS cannot deliver to a P.O. box.

Storage & Care

Babkas, Banana Bread & Rugelach are pulled from the bakery's ovens at 4 or 5pm the day they are shipped, so they are incredibly fresh when they arrive at your door the next day. Enjoy within 24 hours of arrival, or freeze immediately for up to 60 days. If frozen, thaw at room temperature for 2 to 3 hours - they will still taste delicious and fresh.

We agree - Breads' Babka is the absolute BEST babka anywhere. We like their chocolate babka the best - flaky, flavorful, and they use the richest dark chocolate.

not only the best babka in NY , but the best I've ever had - and that includes in Hungary , home of babka ! I still have one (I got 3 as a gift), carefully hidden in the freezer for some big occasion - maybe when Trump is impeached ?

Absolutely amazing! The best ever. Light, not too sweet, totally authentic. Just like my Grandmother used to make. Plus, it keeps very well in freezer. As good after refrigeratoion as freshly baked. Slight reheating makes it even more heavenly.

I've never been a huge Babka fan...UNTIL NOW! These are DIVINE! Moist, flavorful, chocolatey, rich,....DELICIOUS! I had to wrestle one out of the hands of my family so I could freeze it for later enjoyment. I will be coming back for more goodies. To think I've been eating sub par Babka all these years.

Babka is my son's favorite. I thought some that was being called The Best Babka in New York, would be a fun treat for a holiday gift. The Babka was good. But pricey. And in the end, we decided it wasn't worth the money. Go get Babka at you local Trader Joes. Great Babka at a much better price!

This order was sent to my mother. I shared my first order with her. Recently she asked about it, so I had an order shipped to her. She gave on loaf to a friend. They enjoyed it. My mother and sister loved it. I'll have to send it occasionally. It's a big hit!

It was delicious and arrived quickly. I brought it to a luncheon with friends who never heard of a Babka. I served it with vanilla ice cream on the side and everyone was so impressed with how good it tasted. A perfect dessert.

I've ordered their babkas in the past; excellent. This time, however, the 3-pk were dry. The outside overbaked, but the center moist. If one cuts the crust--top, sides, bottom, and eats only what remains, delicious.

Best babka in NY is the best babka. Delivered on time.

Delivery was received on time. The food was well packaged. It was excellent. It was moist and had just the right amount of chocolate. I sliced it and used the toaster. My kitchen smelled like chocolate. Another method I used was the microwave. I put it in for a few seconds and it worked very well. I froze the other loafs until I gave one away. It was enjoyed by the person that received it. I used it as a desert on one occasion. After taking it out of the toaster a tablespoon of ice cream was put on it. I will order this again. I know it will go great in the winter with a hot cup off coffee. It will be great for replacing the morning pastry.
