Rum Babas


  • To make the dough, add all of the ingredients, apart from the eggs, to the mixer’s bowl and beat with the whisk attachment.
  • As soon as the butter breaks down, add the eggs one at a time, making sure each addition is completely incorporated before adding the next.
  • Continue beating until the dough starts to pull back from the sides of the bowl. (The dough can be kneaded by hand and will be almost runny. It just has to come together and be smooth and elastic.)
  • Transfer to a working surface that has been brushed with oil and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  • Grease muffin molds with butter and dust with flour. Add about a tablespoonful (about 35 g) of the dough to each mold. (You can also use a pastry bag for this.)
  • Let the dough rise for about 1 hour. When the dough has risen to the rim of the molds they are ready to bake.
  • Preheat oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from molds and allow them to cool on a wire rack while preparing the syrup.
  • In a pot, add the water, sugar and aromatics.
  • Place over heat and bring to a boil. As soon as the sugar melts, remove from heat.
  • Carefully drop the cold babas in the hot syrup. Rotate them in the syrup to make sure all sides are coated in syrup. Allow them to sit for about 10-15’’ because you don’t want them to soak up too much of the syrup. (You can understand how much syrup they have soaked up by their weight.)
  • Remove the babas from the syrup and place back on wire rack.
  • To serve, prepare the whipped cream.  Beat the heavy cream and icing sugar in a mixer using the whisk attachment.
  • To prepare the aromatic sugar, finely chop the lavender flowers and mix them with a mortar and pestle. This will be sprinkled over the whipped cream.
  • Use a knife or a pastry brush to spread the marmalade over the babas. Cut them in half, diagonally and add about half a spoonful of run to each side, fill with whipped cream, sprinkle with the aromatic sugar and serve.


When adding the syrup, the babas absolutely have to be cold and the syrup extremely hot!
