    Mia in Germany's Note:

    This is a dessert with the typical German ingredient pumpernickel bread. It could be called a German version of tifle, and there are several variations of it. If you don't have pumpernickel bread, you can also use any other dark stale bread, as long as it's a hearty, slightly sweet one. For the raspberry schnaps you can also use kirsch or Chambord. If you can get hold of vanilla sugar, use 2 tablespoons of it or more to taste. This dessert is not very sweet! Cooking time is resting time.

    1. 1
      Thaw the raspberries a little (they should not become too soft!).
    2. 2
      Process the pumpernickel or bread to coarse crumbs, mix with chopped chocolate and put into glass bowl and soak with schnaps or juice.
    3. 3
      Whip cream until stiff.
    4. 4
      Cream yoghurt with the sugar and vanilla (or vanilla sugar).
    5. 5
      Fold in whipped cream.
    6. 6
      Pour yoghurt cream over soaked bread crumbs.
    7. 7
      Top with raspberries and refrigerate for one hour or so (it tastes better if it's a bit soaked through).

      What an unusual, different dessert--we loved it!! Used a mixture of fresh and frozen berries (they were a bit tart, so I sprinkled a little sugar on them), real German pumpernickel, and opted for the Kirschwasser (I added some to the Chantilly whipped cream as well as to the pumpernickel-chocolate mixture, and so glad I did!). Delicious! The yogurt and whipped cream combination was ingenius -- why didn't I think of that. Not an uber-sweet dessert, and one which my diabetic DH didn't feel too guilty eating. Can't wait to make the Blushing Maid again for family and friends, I think this would be especially great following a German style dinner. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe with us, Mia in Germany! Made for More Than Sauerkraut & Dumplings in the German Forum. Cheers! Becky
