I made blancmange again, this time making some vanilla and cherry and some lemon. I also used less cornstarch. Hopefully that makes them turn out better.

Hi Sophie,

That's wonderful. Little Women was my favorite book when I was a girl, and it's lovely to think we can enjoy the same treats the March family ate. I'm glad your daughter liked it as well.
All best, Jeri


I tried this recipe, but I used 1 cup milk, a pinch of salt, 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch (a lot, I know, but I tried it with 1 1/2 teaspoons and it didn't thicken), a little orange and lemon extract, and 2 tablespoons powdered sugar.
It came out nice, thick, a little sugary, bland--but it was blancmange!
I'm not really the best cook, and so my family was pleasantly surprised. However, only one of my daughters liked it as much as I did.
Great simple blancmange recipe!
