That’s baba au rhum, Baby!

My boyfriend encouraged me to order the classic French dessert, baba au rhum, at Brasserie Balzar in Paris. It was very exciting with a big bowl of creme chantilly (sweetened whipped cream) served on the side.

My first (and only) bite burned like hot buttered rum! Here is an interesting article and recipe:
