  • Bavarian cream or Crème bavaroise or simply Bavaroisis is a classic dessert. Bavarian cream is similar to flour- or cornstarch-thickened crème pâtissière but thickened with gelatin instead and flavoured with liqueur. It is lightened with whipped cream when on the edge of setting up, before being moulded, for a true Bavarian cream is usually filled into a fluted mould, chilled until firm, then turned out onto a serving plate. The American "Bavarian Cream doughnuts" are actually filled with a version of a crème pâtissière, causing local linguistic confusion.
