Description

Rum Baba.

We make the classic, dough-like cake and soak it in a non-alcoholic rum-flavoured syrup.

We then add rum alcohol.

Our recipe consists of only the best ingredients.

Who invented the Rum Baba?

The origins of the Rum Baba are in Eastern Europe. The Babka is a cylindrical yeast cake that has been made in Poland, Ukraine and Belarus for hundreds of years.

Legend has it that King Stanislaus – who was exiled from the Polish throne – brought a babka cake with him to France in the eighteenth century. He then added alcohol to moisten it as it had dried up on the journey.

French King Louis XV married the daughter of King Stanislaus. She passed on the cake and recipe to her pastry chef Stohrer. He sold it in his famous pastry shop in Paris.

French pastry chefs exported the Baba to Naples in the nineteenth century.

This is how the Rum Baba became so popular in Campania.
