So refreshing and delicious ! Blanc-Mange with Stewed Fruit is ideal to serve when entertaining or as a special dessert during holidays
I think this Blanc-Mange is one of the most delicious dessert I have ever made !
For some reason I always have a fear when making anything in a mold and have to turn it out. Three reasons .. my desserts always break, it did not set properly or it sticks to the mold.
Years ago, must be about 10 or 12 years, I bought a Tupperware mold, quite fancy ! The mold has a lid and a smaller mold which made the “hole” in the middle (the smaller one can be used on it’s own as well).
Well, it was still brand new when I used it for the first time yesterday and it did the magic!
Must say, I think it is because of the recipe mainly, as it really set nicely and took only about 3 hours of chilling.
The Blanc-Mange and the Glaze is a recipe which I (gawked!) looked at for years as well.
I found it in one of my favorite cookbooks Spyskaarte vir Elke Seisoen by Annette Human (available in English as SEASONAL MENUS).
The Fruit I stewed, as I think, my Granny used to do it – but I could be wrong. Anyhow, the whole dessert was delicious. Oh, I already mentioned that !
