Baba au Rhum ! This was one of the favourite desserts of my mum, once upon a time. She was eating one almost every saturday afternoon in front of the TV.
For the little story, … It seems like the Baba au Rhum was created by a well-know king. He found his kougelhopf too dry and asked to add some Tokaji (a delicious Hungarian wine) on top.
The rum baba cake was born. The perfect dessert to eat with your family on saturday or sunday afternoon ! Want some ?
A homemade chantilly will make the difference !
