Put seasonal berries to use in dessert recipe

August 2, 2006


It's a great time of year for picking all kinds of fresh berries. Here's a recipe idea for every taste.

Fresh berry bismarck

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup milk

2 large eggs

Pinch of salt

Pure maple syrup

Fresh raspberries, blueberries or strawberries

Confectioners' sugar

Special equipment: a 10-inch ovenproof saute pan

Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

Put the butter in a 10-inch ovenproof saute pan and heat in the oven until the butter melts and begins to bubble. Watch this carefully so that the butter does not burn. Meanwhile, in a large bowl and using a wire whisk or hand-held electric mixer, whisk together the flour, milk, eggs and salt until smooth. Pour the batter into the saute pan and return to the oven for about 12 minutes or until the batter is puffy and golden brown.

Slide the puffed bismarck onto a serving plate. Drizzle with maple syrup, fresh berries and confectioners' sugar. Cut in half and serve immediately. Makes two servings.
