This baba with limoncello is one of the 2 birthday cakes I made to celebrate my Ivano's 40th birthday, a dessert that he loves and that we ate with our colleagues in the office this morning. It is a variant of the rum baba that my mom has always prepared and to which I am very fond, for this reason I decided to prepare it for such an important occasion, my love was happy and I can only be happy: D Well friends, I leave you to the recipe (then I will also put the one of the cake I prepared for tonight) and I'm going to give my love another kiss, today he deserves them even more;)
How to make baba with limoncello
In a very large bowl put the eggs, sugar, softened butter cut into small pieces and the brewer's yeast.
Whip the mixture until it is fluffy then add the sifted flour and salt and continue to whip
Knead the baba dough until it becomes elastic
Then pour the mixture into a buttered baba mold
Let it rise for 3 hours
Bake in a preheated oven at 220 degrees and bake for 30 minutes.
In the meantime, prepare the minocello sauce.
In a saucepan, put the water, sugar and lemon peel, bring to a boil and cook for 20 minutes.
Turn off the heat and add the limoncello
Prick the entire surface of the now warm baba with a toothpick and with the help of a ladle pour the boiling water over the surface of the sweet.
Tilt the mold and let out the excess syrup and with that continue to wet the baba repeatedly until the cake absorbs it all.
