First off – apologies for the long absence. I’ve recently started a new job and the time has just flown by.
Last month I made rum babas from Paul Hollywood’s recipe on Great British Bake Off.
The recipe was quite difficult to grasp. I had to start over with the dough because I tried to kneed it with my hands and it just went everywhere.
On my second attempt, I mixed the dough with a greased wooden spoon and that worked really well.
They took quite a while to do because your have to soak them in the syrup but once they’re all ready they’re really easy to put together and make look pretty.
