Hazelnut Chocolate Babka

Based on my challah dough, a touch of heat from ancho chile amplifies the chocolaty indulgence twisted into this cinnamon-and-ginger-scented dough. Challah dough isn’t buttery like traditional babka dough, making this bread as suitable for weekday breakfasts as for brunch. Forming these loaves is a bit of a project, but one well worth trying.
