Delicious, fancy light and creamy Panna Cotta is sooo easy to make that even we nailed it. Panna Cotta has this fancy reputation of a high class desert. It is the cool friend that all deserts want to be and all food lovers want to be with. You can pair it with fresh fruit and it becomes this sensul companion for summer days or pair it with Christmas spices and it makes a classy winter dessert. It looks so pure and tastes so wonderful.
So we made one thing clear, Panna Cotta goes with everything and still somehow manages to stay on top and keep its high ranks class. We know what you are thinking…” that full of itself smart %^$# “. Yeah, we think so too…but envy is a green eyed monster that does not suit us.
So, less talk more work.
- Servings: 4
- Preparation time : 30 minutes ( plus another 2-3 hours in the fridge)
Ingredients Panna Cotta
For the Panna Cotta
- 10g gelatine
- 500ml sweet cream
- 90ml cold milk
- 50g sugar depending on how sweet you like your deserts
- vanilla or rum essence
For the sauce
- You can use any topping or make your own
1st step: Get jelly with it
Start by mixing the gelatin with the cold milk and let it rest for about 5 minutes to soften. Most probably this will take all of your mixing skills or simply you can cheat (like us), and use a small coffee blender :).
2nd step: Things get serious
In a small saucepan mix the cream with sugar and bring to a boil over moderately high heat. Do not let the ingredients boil for too long. Just until they slightly start bubbling. When they start doing their little dance add the gelatin mixture and vanilla. Stir for a little bit longer until everything seems perfectly incorporated.
3rd step: Get your cups ready
Place the whole magic in cups. Little advice: use silicon cups or plastic because it is much easier to get the Panna Cotta out of it and create a fancy serving. If you use glass or any other kind of cups the pudding will just stuck to it and there is no gentle way to pull it out…telling you this out of experience.
Shove it in the fridge for about 2 or 3 hours and….wait.
4th step: Get creative
This is the fun part. If you used plastic cups simply drill a hole with the tip of a knife at the bottom of the glass and the Panna Cotta will slide right out. You can literary use whatever you please as topping from jam to fruit and ice cream topping as long as it is to your liking.
