in the kitchen with: clotilde dusoulier’s rum babas – Design*Sponge

The recipe for Babas au Rhum that Clotilde Dusoulier from Chocolate & Zucchini has shared with us this week exemplifies the types of recipes we love for the In the Kitchen With column.  It’s a classic French recipe which reminds her of her childhood.  It is easy to make and is easily paired with so many different fruits and flavors.  We exchanged a lot of emails over how it should look until we realized that we both had different visual images.  In Italy, the baba looks like a little chef’s hat and in France, Clotilde has always made them wider than they are tall.  Shape however doesn’t affect the taste!  Clotilde’s recipe also calls for strawberries and black pepper, but the strawberry season had already passed by the time we were able to schedule her recipe, so we have used peaches.  If you are unable to get ripe strawberries this time of year where you are, please do not be deterred!  Whip up some cream, use what fruit you have, and enjoy!  Like many of the other recipes on the column, this one is a great pay out with very little effort.  The people with whom you share it will adore you!  –Kristina
