He has had 5 robins but which one do you think he loves or cares for the most?
Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, Damian Wayne and Stephanie Brown
I think he has a special relationship with all of em. Some people would say Dick because he was the first robin, and the robin Bruce had more of a connection to because of pretty much the same back story. Some would say Jason because of how batman felt when joker killed him. I believe there is a scan where Jason ( while robin) was sick and he wanted to go do the city watch with Bruce, but then Bruce sat down next to him to take care of him and the last panel was him in Bruce's arms sleeping. Time ( like Dick) was taken in by Bruce after his parents died, but even before that he had to undergo rigorous training which in a way was Bruce caring for him because he didn't want him to share the same fate as Jason. Damian is well Bruce's son so there is one reason he would care about him. There is one scan of him hugging Bruce ^^ (look up), and after he died Bruce felt a huge amount of guilt after his death. Not sure why Cassie wasn't on the list because... well Bruce was a better father figure to her than David Cain.
I was about to rattle off "Damian" as my answer, but then I stopped and thought about it for a bit.
"Favorite" doesn't really mean the same thing as "love," as the OP suggests. If we're talking love, I think it's difficult to say. A good parent doesn't love any one child any more than another. Not saying Bruce qualifies as a "good parent," but I think he was just as devastated by Jason's loss as he was by Damian's.
I think "favorite" here could mean which one he's most proud of. Or the one he can most relate to, confide in, or trust. When framed in this way, the obvious answer becomes Dick.
