  • 1/2 cup raisins
    1/4 cup rum
    1 tablespoon yeast
    1/3 cup warm milk
    1 cup flour
    2 eggs
    5 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
    pinch salt
    1 teaspoon sugar

    1 cup sugar
    3/4 cup water
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/4 cup dark rum
    3/4 cup apricot glaze
    2 kiwis, peeled and sliced
    1 cup strawberries, cleaned and sliced
    1 cup whipped cream


  • In a small bowl, soak raisins with 1/4 cup rum and set aside.
    In a large bowl, dissolve yeast with milk. Let rise in a warm place for 10 minutes.
    Mix in the flour and eggs, beating well until dough is smooth. Cover the bowl, and let rise at room temperature for 45 minutes. Mix the softened butter, salt and sugar in the dough, slapping it against the sides of the bowl. Mix in the rum-soaked raisins.
    Fill individual buttered molds 2.5 inch high by 1.75 inch diameter about half full. Let rise until molds are full. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.
    For syrup: Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from heat, and cool until lukewarm. Add the vanilla and rum.
    Soak the babas in the syrup to absorb as much of the syrup as possible. Heat the apricot glaze, and brush over the babas. Place the soaked babas on plates. Pipe rosettes of whipped cream on plates. Decorate with kiwis and strawberries.
    SAVARIN is a ring-shaped cake made with the above recipe.
