Every month 16th will share a new recipe; every blogger should blog about that on 15thof every month. This is my first month posting recipe for Baking Partners group. Suggested 2 recipes for this month one is carrot cake and another one is this chocolate babka muffin.I selected this delicious babka since it has chocolate in it Even though I got the recipe on earlier, I prepared today only.These babkas very soft and delicious.I really enjoyed this challenge.
