Easy “Bavarois”: the French pudding…?

The “Bavarois” is a classic French cold dessert made from an egg custard with gelatine, mixed with whipped cream and sometimes fruit puree or other flavors, and then set in a mold. This version is an abreviated one which skips the addition of whipped cream and produces a chocolate-flavored dessert very similar to pudding. It is made in a flash and can be a quick mid-week treat. Just make it the night before since it requires overnight refrigeration. If you love whipped cream as we do, you can always add a dollop on top!!


“Easy and Quick” Bavarois:

You’ll need:

3 egg yolks

60 g cocoa powder (sweetened is OK since there is little sugar in the mixture)

6 gelatine sheets

4 TBsp granulated sugar

60 cl milk


1. Pour milk into saucepan and heat it without boiling. Put the gelatine sheets into a bowl of water to soften.  IMG_6223IMG_6224IMG_6225
