panna cotta is one of my favourite desserts. the best thing of this extremely simple and lovely looking delights is the fact that usualy everybody likes it (i did it last saturday for my halloween party and everybody appreciated it very much!). there are many very different variants of this lovely dessert (you can find one of it looking at one of my posts from september or cliccking here). today i'm sharing with you the simplest recipe for panna cotta. it will only take you few minutes to make this delicious dessert and, i ensure you, the result will be fabulous!you will need (for 4 or 6 panna cottas - depending on the size of your pans):
-250 ml (1 cup) of heavy sweet cream (no creme fraiche this time!)
-250 ml (1 cup) of milk (fresh milk would be the best!)
-70g (2,5 oz.) of sugar
-1 vanilia stick (or few drops of vanilia aroma) - optional
-10g (0,4 oz.) - usually 2 leafs of gelatine
put the gelatine leafs in a bowl full of cold water and leave until the gelatine becomes soft. put cream and milk in a pot on a medium fire. add sugar and mix well until the sugar melts. make the mixture boil for 15-30 seconds and take away from fire. if you use vanilia stick add it to the mixture, cover the pot and leave for 10 minutes. then take a stick away. if you use vanilia aroma add it to the mixture. add the gelatine to the still hot mixture and mix wery well - the gelatine will melt very quickly. put the mixture in aluminium pans (special for panna cotta and creme caramel, if you don't have special pans you can use glasses as well), cover with plastic wrap and leave for cooling. then transport the pans in the fridge and leave for at least 3-4 hours (the best would be the whole night). before serving take away from pans (with use of a knife - cut delicately the edges) and put upside down on small plates.
