Well, I'm a day late, so this is really my Wednesday with Dorie, but you get the idea. I finally decided on Tuesday afternoon to just try to put the blanc-manger together. I didn't have any raspberries on hand so I used some strawberries instead. I put together two small ramekins making only a 1/4 recipe (thanks to converting to grams and ounces). I think I may have incorrectly converted the almond meal though since there was quite a bit in mine, but who knows.
While the dessert was different than I expected, it was a happy difference for me. I expected it to have a real "gelatin-y" texture to it which I wasn't looking forward to. Instead it was creamy and light with just some texture from the almond meal and strawberries.
So, while it wasn't something I will probably make again, I'm glad that I went through with it and found out it wasn't what I expected.
