Dark Chocolate Babka, Pletenka with Cinnamon

I came across the Ukrainian café on Victoria Dr. and wanted to try it. Kozak has 3 locations in Vancouver and New Westminster. It was my first time having Ukrainian sweets, so I ordered Dark Chocolate Babka and Pletenka with Cinnamon.

Babka is like Danish bread with lots of dark chocolate inside. I loved how it’s crispy on the outside and how fragrant the dark chocolate tastes! It’s better when warmed up as the dark chocolate melts well and adds a great flavour to the bread.

Pletenka with cinnamon is different from the regular cinnamon roll as it’s a twisted bun with coated brown sugar and cinnamon. The texture is unique as the outside is crispy, and the inside is chewy with lots of cinnamon. It’s not overly sweet but rich with cinnamon. I enjoyed this one as well!

It’s always fun to explore new food. I will come back for Babka Loaf and stock up in the freezer!
