TWD: Raspberry Blanc-Manger
I had never heard of Raspberry Blanc-Manger before this week. But now, thanks to a Susan of Sticky, Gooey, Creamy, Chewy, not only have I heard of it, but I have tasted and enjoyed the simple wonder that is blanc-manger.
Thanks Susan, for this week's Tuesday's with Dorie pick.
How would I describe this so-easy yet very tasty dessert? Hmmm, milk and cream is heated with ground almonds, some whipped cream is folded in and gelatin is added to help it set up, and don't forget the handful of fresh raspberries... yea, I guess that about covers it.
It seems so light and refreshing, perfect for a summer meal when just a little something sweet is required to make the meal seem complete.
I will definitely make this again!
Please pick up a copy of Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking, From my Home to Yours", or stop by Susan's site if you'd like to see the recipe.
Voyez-vous la semaine prochaine! (which I think translates to "see you next week!")
