The recipe,
step by step

  1. 1

    Lime chantilly

    Cold infuse for 24 hours. Whip with the whisk when needed.
  2. 2

    Mint syrup

    Blend the mint leaves with the trimoline in a food processor to obtain a mint paste. Boil the water with the caster sugar. Then add the mint paste. Leave to infuse for 5 minutes. Add the dark rum when cold.
  3. 3

    Baba batter

    Heat the milk, butter, salt and sugar mixture to 45°C, then add the yeast and eggs. Then pour the mixture over the flour in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat until it becomes a smooth batter. Butter a fluted brioche mould. Pipe in 300g of batter per mould. Leave to rise at 28°C for 30 minutes. Bake at 170°C for 15 minutes, then lower the temperature to 155°C and continue to bake for around 30 minutes.
  4. 4

    Mojito confit

    Boil the water with the mint paste and leave to infuse for 5 minutes.
    Strain through a fine sieve and add the lime juice. Add the pectin NH and brown sugar, then bring to the boil. Blend the rum with the xanthan gum (without heating) until the texture is smooth and glossy.
  5. 5


    Delicately mix the ingredients (cold).
  6. 6

    Finishing touches

    Once the baba itself has cooked and cooled down, soak it in the syrup at 40°C for about 10 minutes so that the syrup reaches the centre of the baba. Drizzle with hot liquid glaze. Using a knife, cut out the centre to form a cavity. Pipe in the whipped cream using a ‘Saint-Honoré’ nozzle (circular with a V-shaped cutaway on one side). Place the marmalade in the centre to garnish the cavity. Decorate as you wish.

Jérôme De Oliveira reveals his French Touch

An indulgent recipe topped with lime infused Chantilly. A delicious treat to share, made in a brioche mould... so French!

Did you know ?

In the 18th century, King Stanislas of Poland soaked a cake he found too dry with sweet Malaga wine. His pastry chef, Nicolas Stohrer, then came up with the idea of swapping wine for rum and the rum baba was born. The pâtisserie he opened in rue Montorgueil still exists today and continues to sell both recipes.
