French citrus Baba

Invented in the first half of the 18th century, the “Baba au rhum” is a great classic of French pastry-making, of which there are several variations. It’s a dessert consisting of a brioche cake drizzled with rum and generally accompanied by chantilly or crème pâtissière, and fresh or candied fruit. What better way to celebrate the start of spring than with a new take on an emblematic French pastry? The classic Baba au rhum becomes Baba aux agrumes (with or without rum)!
