How to Make Rum Baba

Step-by-Step

  • 1This is such and easy elegant dessert.
  • 2Chill some lovely stemmed crystal pudding cups. I like to serve this elegantly it looks like one has worked your little fingers to the bone. :)
  • 3Take a slice of pound cake or shortbread thingys and place it in each chilled cups.
  • 4Scoop a lovely round large ball of Ice Cream into the each cup.
  • 5Pour a jigger of Rum over the ice cream of each.
  • 6Put a little Hot Fudge or Carmel sauce on top.
  • 7Add Whipped cream on top.
  • 8Add a cherry.
  • 9Optional add some chopped nuts..
  • 10Serve immediately.
  • 11Option...I have run out of Rum sometimes..I have used Courvoisier or Cognac. Or you could use any flavor of Schnapps, a sweeet wine, Lemocello or Annesette would be good too.
    I have used this recipe over left over Banana Bread, Chiffon Cakes, or just a box mix of different flavored cakes. Instead of buying the cake.
  • 12Another way I have done this is by using a Lemon Pound cake, a jigger of Lemoncello and Lemon Curd...

    And instead of using Ice Cream I have use Lemon Sorbet with left over Angel Food cake..and add the lemon curd and Lemoncello.
