I love Rum Baba. As with all yeast goods, patience will pay off. This syrup is amazing, it has bayleaf, cinnamon and coriander to flavour it apart from the rum. I use sultanas cos I just hate currants. They seem to burn more easily in yeast goods giving them a bitter taste. To make proper Rum Babas you need Dariole moulds but a deep muffin pan works alright. Babas can be served with whipped cream on the side.
