Quick dessert recipe: Vanilla Panna Cotta
Panna cotta means ‘cooked cream’ in Italian. It includes very few ingredients, and is basically a simple mixture of cream, sugar, and vanilla. Gelatin is added to set the mixture and create a custard-like consistency.
The final product is rich and silky smooth. This is best classic panna cotta recipe!
for 2 servings
1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
1 tablespoon cold water
1 ½ cups heavy cream(360 mL)
¼ cup sugar(50 g)
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
Sprinkle gelatin over the water. The gelatin will absorb the water and dissolve, in a process called “blooming.”
In a small saucepan, combine heavy cream with sugar and cook over medium until it’s at the scalding point, or just under a boil.
Once the cream has almost reached the boiling point, remove from heat and add vanilla extract and bloomed gelatin. Stir until fully dissolved.
Strain panna cotta mixture into desired serving tempered glasses.
Allow cream to come to room temperature before chilling in the fridge for 2-4 hours, or until the cream is firm in texture.
Top with berries and honey.
