Bavarian Cream Pie Day

By Diane Forrest,

My Uncle Jack is a really great guy.  Well I call him my uncle, but he isn't related, I have just known him since I was born.  When he comes for a visit I always make him Chocolate Éclairs because he makes such a fuss over them, and never shares them with anyone.  Most recipes call for a whipped cream filling, but I prefer the Bavarian cream filling in mine.  Bavarian cream is a cross between pudding and mousse.  True Bavarian creams first appeared in the U.S. in Boston Cooking School cookbooks, by Mrs. D.A. Lincoln, 1884.  Until today I thought Bavarian cream only came in vanilla, however, after doing so research, I learned that it can be any flavor you like.  Not only that, but fruits can also be added to the mix.   Below is a recipe for a quick Bavarian Cream.

Today is Bavarian Cream Pie day.  Why not try this recipe, or one of your own, and try this instead of leftover pumpkin or pecan pie.

  • 3/4 cup milk
