Babas au Rhum
Published January 9, 2007.
The babas can be baked in advance. Keep them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days, or wrapped well and frozen for up to 2 weeks. Bring them to room temperature, soak them in the syrup, and glaze them just before serving. The babas will absorb the syrup more readily if the syrup is warm. If desired, serve with lightly sweetened whipped cream.
