The baba is one of the typical desserts of the Neapolitan tradition, maybe it's the typical Neapolitan sweet par excellence. To prepare the baba there are many recipes, the one that I propose is the baba recipe to my mother rum. It is customary to think that the baba is not easily done at home, but this is a really simple recipe and sure result. I was reading around to use the mixer or the whisk hook ... but I guarantee that even with regular blender is great:) PS: The doses for soaking in rum are indicative because they are subject to personal taste and I edit in along the way, one thing I would tell you ... abound with rum otherwise you enjoy the true Neapolitan baba!
