Rum Baba - the Dessert!
Mmmmmmm......this is a good one. In fact, I think any dessert made with rum is quite good. Rum balls, rum cake, rum anything. This lovely thing pictured here is a Rum Baba, made by Paula, my favorite local patissier.
The Rum Baba is a yeast-based baby bundt cake. Paula added craisins to this batch (which I think are dried out cranberries.) The rum sauce was given to me in a separate container so I could heat it up and then pour it all over the thirsty little bundt cake. And then I spooned a chilly heap of Cool Whip on top.
It was GOOD!
