Small and fluffy baba' immersed in an infusion of Rhum.
Country Italy
Region Campania
Notes Even though it is now considered a typical dish from Naples, I found out from the site from which I adapted this recipe, that it was actually created in Poland by the king Stanisław Leszczyński who used to find the then very popular Kugelhupf too dry for his taste. The legend says that one day he got angry and just threw the Kugelhupf to the other side of the dining table, hitting a bottle of rum that fell on it, soaking the sweet. The king tasted it and liked it so much that he decided to call it Ali Baba like the character of One Thousand and One Nights which was his favourite book. Then the sweet was exported to France where it became known simply as Baba (pronounced with the accent on the final “a”) and from there to Naples. Whatever its origin, it is now one of the most popular sweets from Naples.

Located in Rome Street, between the archaeological excavations and the Pompei sanctuary, the pastry shop De Vivo offers every day a vast selection of typical Neapolitan products made with passion and wisdom. Delights to get lost in the softness of a "pastiera", the crispness of a hot "sfogliatella", until it gets the maximum of the exaltation with the smell of a baba' just dipped in the Rhum. An exhilaration of pleasure unique in the world!
