Baba in Paris

We first discovered the Kugelhopf in the Alsatian city of Strasbourg, a sort of coffee cake with fruits and nuts, baked in a special mold.  But when we got to Paris, we found the cakes were smaller and soaked in rum.  Outside the Sacre Coeur there was a food festival at Christmas where famous food providers from all over France were demonstrating cooking techniques.  There we discovered the Canele d’Armagnac and the Baba du Bougnat, which quickly became our new Christmas tradition.  It went perfectly with our Christmas village where the Sacre Coeur is the centerpiece.
