The Neapolitan Babà
With its unmistakable mushroom shape, the Babà is an Italian delicacy you can't miss. A “democratic dessert” which can be enjoyed without cutlery and with no need for excessive formality. Three bites and it’s gone!
The Babà is a leavened oven-baked sweet pastry soaked in an alcoholic liquid (traditionally rum or limoncello of the Amalfi Coast) It first appeared in 1836, as a typical Neapolitan sweet in the first Italian cookbook written by Angeletti.
