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!

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)

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!

Ingrid said... [Reply to comment]

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.
