Blueberry Flaugnarde aka Blueberry Custard Cake

Blueberry panstard? Cakestard? No. Stardcake…erm. How about blueberry cuscake? I’m tryin’ to Brangelina this lovely blueberry dessert. Because it is a suprising, yet magical combination between custard and pancake. And shouldn’t all magical combinations of things have their names blended together?

I saw this on The Misfit Baker’s (now retired) blog awhile ago. And since Neal recently bought a ginormous bag of frozen blueberries (which I also used here), I decided to give it a go. The recipe is super simple and doesn’t have a lot of steps which is something I love about all of Starr’s recipes. This particular recipe is as simple as blend, pour, sprinkle and bake.

It tastes like a delicate blueberry custard with a bit of pancake-feel going on around the edges and bottom. Which is pretty much how Starr described it on her blog, as a mix between custard and pancake.  In fact, that very description is what led me to pin the recipe.

The only mods I made:

  • I was feeling extra non-measure-y, so I just drained and dumped in a whole 12.3 oz box of firm silken tofu in the food processor. This, instead of measuring out 1 1/2 cups of pureed tofu. Seemed about right.
  • Didn’t have a 10-inch spring form pan, so I used an 8-inch baker’s pan. This resulted in a thicker custard cake and I had to bake it an extra 15 minutes as a result.

Even with my janky mods, it came out delicious! I ate it warm. I ate it cold (before I even realized that’s like a thing that French people actually do). In all variations, it was tasty. But my favorite way to eat it was warm with a glass of almond milk.

This blueberry flaugnarde was lovely to eat for breakfast and for dessert! It could even be a great afternoon snack. But of course if I ate it in the afternoon I’d have to follow it with a nice long nap. So if someone asked me what I did that day I could say — oh, I had some blueberry cuscake and an afsnap (afternoon snack and nap).

What custard-y foods do you enjoy eating?

The Revolution is here

Vegan Atlanta is about to get even more awesome with a brand new local vegan gelato company called Revolution Gelatos (click for link). N picked up two samples from them the other day.

I have never had gelato pre-vegan so I can’t compare it to dairy-gelato. BUT what I can say is that I am VERY hard to please when it comes to frozen vegan ice-cream-like things. I find that most are just not creamy enough for me. But stop, hold on, wait a minute…

this stuff turned my vegan-frozen-dessert world upside down. I’m scared of what will happen to my belly once it’s on the market because it is freaking delicious and I can see wanting to eat it all the time. It’s uber creamy, rich, buttery and super decadent. My favorite of the two is the espresso but they were both fantastic.

If you’re in Atlanta, drop by Criminal Records today at 5pm. You can try a sample of Revolution Gelatos and meet Hope Larson, the author and artist for the graphic novel “A Wrinkle in Time”.
