Babà al Rum

History

The origin of the Babà al Rum dates back to the early 18th century in Poland, where it was created as a small, yeast-risen cake soaked in spirits. It later became popular in Naples, Italy, where it was perfected with the addition of rum. Babà al Rum is now a classic Italian dessert loved for its rich and boozy flavor.
