Back in 1899, Antonio Russo founded one of the earliest distilleries in Campania.
His grandson, Maurizio, developed the business, by using the art of local fruit infusions to create refreshing alcoholic drinks and cakes which is still going strong today.
Maurizio Russo Limoncello Baba’ is a popular dessert enjoyed especially on the Amalfi Coast.
Using the best Amalfi Coast PGI lemons, makes the Limoncello babà from Maurizio Russo irresistible.
Babà is a traditional Neapolitan dessert cake soaked in alcohol. The typical mushroom shape is obtained from the leavened dough hours, according to an ancient recipe, in rum, in limoncello, or in a very delicate and unique chocolate and rum cream.
Tasting Notes: The babà has a soft and spongy texture that gives off the fragrant liqueur when bitten.
The sweet buttery and melting mixture in the mouth rounds off the interesting alcoholic notes. Sweet on the palate with a warm and enveloping finish.
Babà can be enjoyed at any time of the day: at the end of the meal or in the afternoon for a special break.
For a tasty and original dessert, serve the babà with fresh cream or ice cream.
