Mixed Berry Flaugnarde

The Flaugnarde comes from a region in France called Périgord. It’s a thick custard dessert, reminiscent of a French clafoutis. This particular recipes celebrates summer berries. The sweet and tart elements of the berries mix perfectly with the creamy rich custard. Warm or cold, this dessert is heavenly.

Baked Peach Custard

This custard is very similar to a French clafoutis, although this recipe has a higher ratio of custard to fruit. The peaches are sautéed before baking which helps enhance their flavor. And the custard is thick, so you can slice it with a soft knife, rather than spooning it into a bowl. It’s easy, delicious, and can be enjoyed hot or cold for breakfast or dessert. Enjoy!

Mousse au Chocolat (French chocolate mousse)

My very favorite dessert on the planet is chocolate mousse. It’s taken years for me to post a recipe though because I’m so particular about how it should be. And I finally have it perfected! What makes this recipe reminiscent of a standard French mousse is its sticky factor. While fluffy and light, it’s also sticky and rich — the way a chocolate mousse should be! And the stickiness is not like a caramel apple, it’s a soft-sticky, where your tongue and the roof of your mouth meet and make that click sound. You know what I mean? All of this is thanks to the recipe being made with eggs, rather than the American versions which often replace the eggs for heavy whipping cream. Enjoy this incredibly easy-to-make recipe that will transport your taste buds straight to France!

Chocolate Chip Russian Tea Cakes
