Petit baba au chocolat

DSC00238-002

It’s a simplified and quick version, but I really like it. It’s just a cocoa BP biscuit. I shouldn’t say that, but maybe I prefer it to the work intensive rich version. And if you want a plant-based cake, that’s the one.

The topping is whipped coconut cream and fresh strawberries.
The syrup is made of kurozato (black sugar) and Japanese brandy (Suntory).

It has the perfect mellow sponge texture…

That’s a cousin of the baba au rhum (Rum baba), famous in my place of origine.
That was a way to recycle dried sesame potica :

The cake was soaked in a light syrup of awamori (sweet rice sake) and kurozato (Okinawa black sugar).

It’s the custom to serve the baba au rhum with cream (whipped or custard ) and with fruit salad.
Here grapes and whipped silky tofu.

Served very fresh, that was good like a sin !

Another way to recycle brioche/chinois/potica…
