Susan of Sticky, Gooey, Creamy, Chewy has chosen raspberry blanc-manger for TWD this week. I made this dessert two weeks ago when I was still in SA. Do you remember that I need to clear my pantry before I leave SA? Well, I'm glad that this recipe came up as one of the choices for this month, because I took the opportunity to use up all the frozen strawberries in the fridge!
I made half a batch of the recipe using 3 small ramekins. Taste wise, I find that it's kinda bland. The texture of the dessert was quite gritty too. Well, the store-bought ground almond that I used could be too coarse for this recipe, or maybe it's meant to be this way. But if I were to make this dessert again, I'll definitely add more sugar to the batter and also make sure that the almonds are finely ground. I may not be crazy over blanc-manger but I have to say that it looks pretty with dots of strawberries on it.
Head over to Susan's blog if you want to give the recipe a try!
