As promised, here is the fruit variation of Tuesday’s Bavarian cream. This time I took the Charlotte Russe* recipe and added a raspberry coulis (a.k.a. puree) on top. Makes for a very different dessert and I can’t decide which of the two I like better!

*The Charlotte Russe recipe came from The Centennial Collection of Favorite Recipes from Grace Episcopal Church in Paducah KY, Second Edition 1975

For the Bavarian cream:

  • 1 teaspoon powdered gelatin
