Baking Challenge

Rum Baba

Give your cake a name based on the ingredients and decoration – and tell us about the origin of your recipe.

Brandy Old Fashioned Baba

Tell us about your proudest moment – or humble failure – in this week’s baking challenge.

My first attempt at a yeast-risen cake.

Describe how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

I used brandy instead of rum. Added orange zest to both the cake and syrup. Used brandy soaked dried cherries instead of currants.

How did you do?

Pleasantly satisfied.
