National Bavarian Cream Pie Day History
It is thought that bavarian cream has existed since the middle ages. It is thought that the Wittelsbach princes, a German family that ruled Bavaria from the 12th century to 1918, introduced it when they hired French cooks to prepare meals for them in the 17th and 18th centuries.
One of the earliest celebrity chefs in Europe was Marie-Antonie Careme, a French cook who is credited with developing the “high art” of French cuisine. Bavarian cream is another invention attributed to him. The Bavarian cream pie was given that name in the 19th century in honor of the Bavarian people.
When Bavarian cream was first created, it was sealed in an “airtight” seal, which was thought to be groundbreaking at the time. Since it contains heavy cream and whipped cream and is typically served as a dessert with fruit puree or fruit sauce.
Bavarian cream pies gained popularity after the turn of the 20th century when instant pudding and custard mixes made it easier to prepare these desserts. Since then, Bavarian cream pies have also influenced the development of variants like the coconut cream pie and the Boston cream pie.
The delicate and delicious flavor of Bavarian cream, which can be combined with many other flavors including chocolate, vanilla, and banana, sets it apart from other pies. So why not indulge in a delicious Bavarian cream pie today?
