If you learn to make this Bavarian Cream, you really will never need any other dessert recipe. This gets raves from my guests every time it’s served and it can be designed to suit any season.
At this time of year, you can simply serve it with berries or soft ripe stone fruits.
In cool weather, my favorite way to serve it is with Rich Butterscotch Sauce. This sauce keeps indefinitely in a covered jar in the refrigerator and it, too, has some versatility. Serve it over poached pears or baked bananas, or just a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
The most important part of making a Bavarian Cream is to be careful not to let the milk boil. Heat the milk just until the bubbles form around the outside of the pan.
