Bavarian Cream with Blackberry Coulis

Deliciously flavorful smooth Bavarian Cream with real vanilla specks. Topped with an easy Blackberry Coulis and real whipped cream for a real show stopper!

A glass dish filled with Bavarian Cream topped with a Blackberry Coulis and garnished with a fresh blackberry. A second dish sits in the background next to a jar of the coulis.I made a mistake in the kitchen. One of the most amazing mistakes ever!

I wanted to make a bavarian cream filling for a post that had been rambling around in my head. Well, the further I got into it, the more that I realized that this recipe wasn’t suited for a filling. It was a stand alone screaming on the top of the mountain prima donna. The recipe that was floating in my head took an immediate back seat to this dish.

The Blackberry Coulis tops this dish with a burst of fresh fruit richness, and dresses up the dish elegantly. This isn’t one of those desserts that is sickly sweet thats good on the first taste, but goes downhill from there. No, this lovely concoction is delicious to the very last bite. Mistakes like this are what keep me in the kitchen.A glass dish filled with Bavarian Cream topped with a Blackberry Coulis and garnished with a fresh blackberry.

My go-to doughnut is a Bavarian Cream. The addition of the fruit is great.
