Last Saturday, Great Uncle Bimbo shared his memories of Saturdays when he was a young bear and happened to mention Rum Babas. These were cakes that he would have as a special treat after his lunch with Davidd and Da every Saturday. In case you missed Bimbo’s post last Saturday, Rum Babas are lovely yeast-risen cakes soaked in rum syrup and topped with cream and a cherry. Once the darling of French cuisine and available in most supermarkets over here, they seem to have fallen out of favour and are now very difficult – if not impossible – to find.
