Best Blancmange Recipe

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.

The delicious blancmange can be added to the collection of light, mini, sweet desserts perfect for gatherings and parties. It’s actually one of my favorite desserts ever. Easy, has an incomparable smooth, creamy and delicate taste, yet light at the same time. Who could ask for a better mini dessert?

It resembles panna cotta in a way. It contains some gelatinous ingredients that allow it to maintain its smooth and delicate texture. Usually topped with fresh berries, brown sugar sauce, or cinnamon and served cold.

Some tips:

  • Make sure to maintain the perfect ratio between milk added and corn flour mixed.
  • Enough time needs to be given for the contents of the mold to set and chill in the fridge. Atleast 6 hours is preferred.
  • This dish can be made in advance and stored in the fridge for a couple of days.
  • Different toppings can be used, all of which are equally delicious:
    • berry sauce or fresh berries like raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries
    • shaved chocolates
    • whipped cream
    • peach compote
