For those of you in need of a refresher, Bavarian cream is any chilled dessert consisting of custard, whipped cream, gelatin and a variety of flavorings, from chocolate, to fruit or liqueurs. Although custard and gelatins have become somewhat outdated over time -- gone is the heyday of Jello -- they've remained dulcet comfort foods and potluck classics.
May we remind you of at 1930s ad campaign for Jello, shortly after their chocolate pudding was introduced, a key ingredient in many a Bavarian cream pie:
"Jack: So Mary, why is JELL-O® like a boy just before Christmas?"
"Mary: Because it's twice as good as ever before, Jack!"And while the novelty of easy gelatin cooking may have worn off, the flavorsome dessert has withstood the test of time.
