TWD: Raspberry Blanc Manger

This week's Tuesdays with Dorie is Raspberry Blanc Manger chosen by Susan of Sticky, Gooey, Creamy, Chewy. You can find the recipe on Susan's blog (one of my personal favorites- she takes great pictures and always has fun and interesting posts). This was a nice, easy little summery dessert to throw together. Before this recipe my only familiarity with blanc manger was the reference to it in the prologue of the Canterbury Tales... but anyway, it's really tasty. It has a nice light and fluffy consistency, similar to mousse, sprinkled with ground almonds and studded with fresh raspberries. The nicest thing about this dessert is how beautifully it unmolds from the cake pan- just make sure to dunk the pan in hot water for a few seconds before turning it upsidedown. I should have saved some raspberries to decorate the top but all and all I thought it ended up very pretty.
