PostSubject: strawberry bavarois   Mon Jan 23, 2012 10:15 pm


My boyfriend and I donít eat sweets at home that much, and the mold was bigger than I expected. So I decided to make fruity jello type dessert ďbavarois.Ē Bavarois is a French desert made with cream, pureed fruit and gelatin, and is a very popular dessert in Japan. Because it has fruit in it, it is quite refreshing. I wasnít planning on doing a how-to on this, but this is ridiculously easy, so Iím going to do a quick how-to! (I took the pictures of how-to. Sorry about the quality of the pictures.)

strawberry bavarois

Strawberries Ė the recipe says 200g, but I just put as much as I wanted
Milk Ė 1/2 cup
Whipping cream Ė 1 cup
Sugar Ė 1/2 cup and 1 TBS
Flavorless gelatin Ė 3TBS or 3 packets (if you want it softer, or not using a mold, you can put 2 TBS of gelatin instead of 3 TBS)
Hot water Ė 3/4 cup (150cc)
Splash of lemon (if you have any)

This recipe makes refreshing not-so-sweet bavarois. If you want it sweeter, add more sugar. (Donít ask me how much, though. Itís up to you!) Or you can indulge yourself and add some whipped cream!

The best part of this recipe is all you need is a blender and a bowl for gelatin.

1. Bring water to boil and pour it in a bowl. Sprinkle gelatin in let it dissolve.

If gelatin doesn't dissolve, you can microwave it for about 30 seconds. But be careful not to microwave it for too long. It may boil over!

2. Put the strawberries (remove the stems!), milk, sugar and little bit of lemon juice in a blender, and mix until the strawberries are pureed. If you arenít using a mold, you donít necessary need to puree the strawberry.

3. Pour gelatin dissolved in hot water into the blender and mix.

4. Pour whipping cream in the blender and mix.

5. Pour the mixture intoÖ anything, such as a mold, glass, tupperware, bowl, etcÖ

I put the rest of the bavarois in a tupperware.

6. Put it in the fridge and wait until it hardens. (it usually takes about half an hour)

If you arenít using a mold, you can just dig in with a spoon! But if youíre using a mold, soak the outer surface of the mold in warm water before taking the bavarois out of the mold. Itíll make it easier for the bavarois to come out.

When I was taking the bavarois out, I realized that the mold was actually a bit more complicated than I thought. I even tried to remove any air bubbles after I poured the mixture into the mold, I guess I wasnít thorough enough. My rabbid had a cavity on his tooth. T_T

The bumpy surface makes it very zombie-like.

I carved the eye part out, and put blueberries in it. It was pretty creepy.

I used the Rabbid cookie cutter I made before to cut out the bavarois in a tupperware.

I also used bunch of different cookie cutter to cut out mini bavarois pieces.

Itís so easy to make, and it makes great refreshing treats especially once the weather starts to get warm. Smile
