Do you know the baba history?
This is a controversy story…
Some people say that the baba have been created by Stanislas Leszczynski, former Poland king, also French duke. He had the idea to add some alcohol to a regional cake, which then have been called baba.He liked this cake because its shapes remembered him the Polish women's dresses!
Nevertheless, other people argued that the baba have been created for the Polish king by Stoher, a Parisian pastry chef. The king brought from his home country a dried brioche. Stoher had the idea to add some wine to make it softer. At this time, the king was reading the tales of a Thousand and One Nights and he decided to call this new cake "Ali Baba" as the famous tale. Latter, we have replaced the wine by rum and added some whipped cream.
