Raspberry Blanc-Manger (Tuesdays with Dorie)

Raspberry Blanc-Manger - Food Librarian
For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Susan of Sticky, Gooey, Creamy, Chewy selected Raspberry Blanc-Manger on pages 398 and 399 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.

The Blanc-Manger. I thought it was a cousin of the Mont Blanc fountain pen.

Turns out it's a cousin of the panna cotta with some almond meal, whipped cream, milk, raspberries and gelatin. It is pronounced: "blah-mahn-jhay"

Raspberry Blanc-Manger - Food Librarian
Beyond simple to make, it's like eating sweet air.

Be sure to check out the other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers!

Recipe:
Find it on Susan's pretty blog or on this NPR piece, "It's never too hot in the Kitchen for Dessert" (June 22, 2007)

I agree - this dessert is deceptively light. Easy to forget all that cream! Yours looks gorgeous!

pretty. It's a good thing it's not related to a fountain pen.

Your Blanc-Manger looks great!

BTW, the correct pronunciation can be found on wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blancmange)

So gorgeous! And yes, it was light - like a cloud. I'll just pretend all that cream isn't in there :)

LOVE LOVE LOVE your blanc-manger. I can't believe how perfect-looking it is. But then again, you made it, so not a big surprise there.

I am looking forward to the banana bundt cake you selected! Woo hoo!

Your blanc manger looks perfect!

Yum, it really is gorgeous in its simplicity.

I also thing the contrasting colors of the darker plate, creamy white, and the pop of raspberry red really works.
