Tuesdays With Dorie 44: Raspberry Blanc-Manger


This week's recipe was chosen by Susan of Sticky, Gooey, Creamy, Chewy (got to love that blog name). I know I have been falling behind with blogging lately but I really am trying to get back into the swing of things. This Raspberry Blanc-Manger is the perfect dessert for those who are time poor (like me). It is literally a matter of minutes before you are putting this in the fridge. It can even be made the day before, so all you have to do is literally un-mould it and serve it with a little raspberry coulis.


I decided to halve the recipe and make little individual blanc-mangers which were really cute. The hardest part of making this dessert was definitely un-moulding it! I would really recommend a silicone mould, especially if you decide to make mini ones. I ended up having to blast my metal muffin tray with my blow torch to ease them out. I didn't have time to buy fresh raspberries unfortunately which is why my berries bled a little throughout the blanc-manger. I found the addition of ground almonds a little strange in terms of texture- maybe mine weren't fine enough?

WOW! Bria... your pics are amazing!

...and of course, yes, the desert looks pretty darn good too!

But boy, I can't get over those pics.

I agree that the texture of the nuts was odd. I turned mine into ice cream and that had a better mouth-feel.
Your photos are so lovely!

Great idea to make little ones. It is hard to keep it molded once out and on a plate.

Looks delicious.

Your blanc-manger looks so beautiful and I think the blush of pink from the raspberries adds to it. I used almond meal which is ground quite fine rather than grinding my own almonds, but my dessert has brown specks in it because the almond meal was made from almonds with the skins still on.

It looks great! I thought the almond texture was a little strange too. I almost wonder if bigger pieces would be better?

Thanks everyone! Glad I wasn't the only one who thought that about the nuts!
