    Whatever happened to...

    Post by Guest on Wed 11 Jan 2012, 6:09 pm

    As Clapco lost weight over Xmas thanks to a well timed bout of flu, he thought it an opportunity to have one of his favourite mega calorie treats to catch up....a RUM BABA!.....

    He went to Waitrose....no sir, He went to Tesco....No sir

    Does anyone know where I can get one?

    They really are better than sex

    Interesting one this !

    I too love Rum Babas but have not seen them anywhere recently.

    As they are a bit difficult to make and need a special pan it is not surprising that the supermarkets stopped making them.

    I believe that the last shop to make them in bulk was Marks and Spencers but even they don't make them now.

    Being a Scot and knowing Glasgow well I know that they are still available from:

    La pattiserie Francoise
    Byres Road
    Glasgow

    As they are originally from France I would suggest that a search online might throw up a few makers of these delicious things.

    Best of luck to you !

    I have heard of these, but I have to admit that I have never tasted one.

    Being the curious kind of chap that I am I did a Google and found a recipe for this alcoholic pastry:

    On a similar vein I have been trying to find anywhere I can get my hands on genuine cannoli as I have heard a lot about these Italian delicacies in TV and movie films and they certainly look delicious.
