Mercato Made Babas soaked in rum and filled with vanilla custard. These babas are ready to eat but can also be served with fresh berries and fruit.

Babas are mushroom shaped yeast cakes soaked in hard liqueur and sugar. Made with a similar dough to Brioche, these cakes are left to leaven three times before baking to ensure a light, fluffy, cloud-like constancy. The cakes dried out for a day before being soaked. This extensive process means that Babas are rarely made at home but purchased from specialty stores. The importance of using quality pastry is to be able to soak up your favourite liqueur.

Ingredients: wheat flour, fresh yeast, free-range eggs, sugar, lemon, vanilla paste, custard (milk, cream, free-range eggs, sugar, cornflour, vanilla paste), lard (pork), rum syrup (rum, sugar, water, vanilla)


Except for the Mediterranean platter, all items are packaged in cardboard packaging to maintain quality - charges apply otherwise.
