Alice in Wonderland – If I had a World of my own… (Photo credit: Brandon Christopher Warren)

Hello, DarlingsIt’s, Alice, shining down to deliver a weekly “delight” to your in box.  The view through Heaven’s soft as gossamer clouds is a glorious one!  Today’s weekly delight offers wisdom (from myself, Alice) and a lovely, French dessert recipe, dedicated to the young and the young at heart. First, an Alice Rule~ The young wife learns that it is impossible to live on Love, so I have chosen an economical yet lavish recipe to sustain life (and perhaps, Love). Charlotte was one of my husband Charles’ favourites ~(dessert, that is).

Charlotte Russe*

Alice’s Charlotte Russe

Soak two tablespoons of gelatin in a little cold water for fifteen minutes; dissolve with a cup of boiling water; add four tablespoons of powdered sugar; when cool strain slowly into a pint of rich cream which has been chilled and whipped to a stiff froth, stirring all the while the gelatin is being poured in.  Pat between layers and on the top of sponge cake, or turn into individual moulds. Line with lady fingers or sponge cake cut to fit the moulds.  Leave in a cold place until serving time.

Ta- dah! Enjoy and until next time, Cheerio my dears!

  1. I love to cook but have only made one Charlotte Russe in my life. I think I picked the most elaborate recipe known to man including making my own lady fingers. After four hours of labor we sat down to devour this special treat only to find that it was mediocre at best. I went back to pies after that.

  2. A French woman could only like a post with a Charlotte recipe. You know, even for a French native it’s a delicate baking (although no baking is involved) act to make a Charlotte. I have failed countless times, but with practice you can get there. Anyway I enjoyed the post and yoru blog, too, by the way.
    Cheers!

    • Bonjour, Evelyne! Thank you for the compliment re: the blog. With regard to, Charlotte~ I haven’t actually tried to bake a Charlotte although it is on my “to do” list! You have inspired me to try!
      Best,
      Lynne
