This Weeks Bake: 3 Rum & Blood Orange Babas

This Weeks Bake: 3 Rum & Blood Orange Babas


The baba – a derivative of the Polish Babka, consists of yeasted dough soaked in flavoured syrup and rum. It developed from Babka to Baba in France when King Stanislaus (an exiled Polish King) complained that the Babka he had brought with him had become too dry. To rectify this Stanislaus’ pastry chef Nicolas Stohrer doused the dry babka with wine, later replaced with rum, and the rum baba was born. Stohrer opened his patisserie in 1730, which specialised in rum babas. It is the oldest patisserie in Paris and still exists today (beautiful and worth visiting once we’re out of lockdown!).


February marks the last month that Moro blood oranges are available, so to take advantage of this while we can – this week's bake consists of 3 rum babas, soaked in a rum* & blood orange syrup and decorated with whipped cream.


* the rum is optional, if you would prefer a sober baba please let me know at checkout!
