Desserts Special


Babà is a typically Neapolitan dessert, although its origins are French.

The preparation requires a little attention and above all a long leavening but the result will be amazing and very particular.

It is also perfect to be served with a soft drink to satisfy even those who do not like rum or cannot consume it.
