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!")

Gorgeous! This was such a surprise hit for me, I just didn't expect to like it that much (actually, I didn't know what to expect!) I'm glad yours was a hit too!

You make it sound so easy, and so good. I skipped this one, it just wasn't calling my name.

You know, the way chocolate does.

I love the way I can see the raspberries peaking through the pudding. Well done!

Pamela said...

It looks lovely.

vibi said...

YES! I'm glad you enjoyed this! Cool!

...and you've got the marvelous presentation to prove it! WOW! Neat and perfect!

P.s.: Since I know you want to make it again... next time, try roasting your almonds (blanched or not which ever you prefer) and grinding them yourself either in a coffee grinder or a processor. You'll see what a difference in taste it makes!!! You'll get an almond "toffee" after taste.

Your blanc-manger looks lovely and light and the raspberries against the white are quite stunning. I think I just need to keep working on getting mine the way it should be.
