In my Polish cook book, I found a Chocolate Babka.  I hope this is what you
are looking for.  

1/2 lb. flour, 2/3  c milk, 1-2/3 oz powdered chocolate, 2-2/3 oz.
confectioners' sugar, 1-2/3 oz raisins, 1 oz yeast, 4- 5 eggs, salt, vanilla
extract, fat and breadcrumbs for baking pan

Make leaven from 1-2/3 oz flour, yeast and milk.  Set aside to rise. Wash the
eggs, break them and separate the yolks from the whites.  Beat the yolks with
sugar, chocolate and vanilla extract.  Combine with the leven, sifted flour
and knead well. Combine with whipped egg whites and rinsed raisins which have
been dredged with flour.  Add salt and tranfer to a greased pan sprinkled
with breadcrumbs.  Smooth out the surface and bake in a moderate oven or
around 45 minutes.  When done, allow to col slightly. Take cake out of pan
and dust with vanilla-flavoured confrectioners' sugar.

There are several other Bakba recipes listed in this book. Contact me direct
if you would like more.
