Try re-spelling it. My mom was from England and she used to make it for us. We lost her last October but she left so many recipes and so much love behind. I think is is blacmange
Here ya go .. this is a link to recipes..
I remember from the book "Little Women" that they made something called Blanc mange, it is probably a French recipe. I wonder if this is the name of this dessert. Good luck!
Boy, this brings back memories! The excuses my siblings and I would come up with not to eat it. Was a dessert (pudding) growing up in England. Believe spelling is Blancmange, (with the accent & dialects, could sound like blumonge) a vanilla & gelatin base, with very hot(scalding) milk. Hopefully, you can find recipe on line. Enjoy! me, I can still taste it. Ha ha.
I found out it was spelling too thanks to Google asking 'Did you mean' ;-)
Here's the Wikipedia info about it:
And there are oodles of blancmange recipes on a google search and this was the top listed:
I guess you just need to view a bunch of links and see which one sounds the closest to what you remember :-) Please share the one you find and choose with us, okay? :-)
