Rum Baba

This classic French dessert, also known as "baba au rhum" or "savarin," has a rich history dating back to 1835 in the bustling streets of Paris. Imagine a small, yeasty cake soaked in a decadent syrup infused with passion fuit, spiced rum, and topped with a luscious vanilla pastry cream and whipped cream? adorned with exotic fruits to elevate the experience. Rum babas are as versatile as they are delectable. They can be crafted into elegant petits fours for a touch of sophistication, served as individual pastries for a delightful treat, or prepared as grand, show-stopping cakes for special occasions.
