Meanwhile, in small saucepan, scald milk over low heat; set aside to cool to lukewarm.
In medium bowl, cream butter and sugar until light.
Beat in eggs, one at a time.
(Mixture will look curdled.) Add yeast mixture, cooled milk and peel.
Stir in about 1/2 of the hot roll mix, beating until smooth.
Gradually stir in remainder to make a stiff dough.
Stir in chopped walnuts.
Grease well about twenty-four 6-ounce molds or two 8-inch ring molds and sprinkle with sugar.
Place dough into molds, filling a little less than 1/2 full.
Cover; let rise in warm place (85Â°F) until dough is about 1/4 inch from top of molds, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
Bake in preheated 375Â°F oven 15 to 20 minutes or until nicely browned and pick inserted near center comes out clean.
Cool in pans about 5 minutes, then invert onto shallow tray.
When barely warm, slowly spoon Apricot Rum Sauce over babas, allowing each portion to absorb before adding more.
Garnish with walnut halves, if desired.
