Zaro's Bread

June 28, 2011
Zaro's Bread
Don't let the name fool you. There are two things that Zaro's does well.  The first is their Babka. For those of you that aren't familiar with this, it is the cousin to the coffee cake.  The wicked cousin that is, the wicked chocolate cousin.  Seriously folks, the Babka is 2Lbs of buttery, sweet, chocolate goodness.  It is the kind that will give you a sugar rush in about 1/2 a second.  Yes, it needs to be shared. Makes a great addition to a boring morning meeting. 

The second is a chocolate fudge cake. This cake is extremely decadent and can usually be bought in the store without ordering.
