Bavarois for him

October 23, 2008

We made bavarois in class yesterday. Bavarois is a cold dessert (like mousse) consisting of eggs, sugar, milk, whipped cream and gelatine. It comes in different flavours. We made blueberry, strawberry and coffee flavour. We were given different shapes and sizes of moulds and I chosed the heart shape, specially made for him (have to eat on his behalf also, haha). It’s very easy to make. Let me show you how to do it.

Dissolve gelatine in water

Whipped cream

Mix egg mixture with whipped cream and flavour of your choice

Bavarois Ingredients

1 egg

125ml milk

35g sugar

15g gelatine

40g water

200g whipped cream


1. Bring milk to boil. Remove from heat and cool.

2. In a bowl, whisk egg and sugar till sugar dissolved.

3. Pour the warm milk into egg mixture and stir well.

4. Continue to cook over low heat until just thick. (*Be careful not to let the mixture boils).

5. Remove from heat and stir in gelatine.

6. Quickly fold in the whipped cream and flavour of your choice. (*I used blended blueberries with sugar for blueberry flavour). Fruits can be added if desired.

7. Pour into prepared moulds.

8. Leave to set in the refrigerator for an hour.

9. Demould, decorate and serve with any sauce of your choice. (* I used chocolate sauce).
