Panna Cotta with Red Berries Coulis

There's nothing easier than making a panna cotta! Oh yes! You really don't have to be a kitchen ninja to make this classic italian dessert! Panna cotta means cooked cream in italian. Just look at these ramekins, how could someone not love that creamy, sugary pudding? Simple and very fast to make (sad story: the chilling time is a torture!). Im warning you that pudding is addictive...AH-DIC-TIVE!




Happy Make-Chill-Ing!


Equipment:
  • Ramekins
  • Measuring Cups
  • Kitchen Scale

Ingredients:
  • 1½ cups (380ml) of heavy cream 
  • 85g of granulated sugar
  • 3 sheets of gelatine
  • 1 vanilla pod, split lengthwise
  • 100g of red berries (frozen or fresh)
  • 20g of granulated sugar
Makes 3 ramekins


Method:

  • Begin by letting gelatine sheets soften in a large bowl of water for 10-15 minutes, or until they are completely soft.
  • In a saucepan, bring sugar and whipping cream to a slow boil. (more of simmering than boiling)
  • Scrape one side of the vanilla pod and add the beans to the whipping cream together with the vanilla pod.
  • Remove saucepan from heat when all the sugar has dissolved. At this point you can toss away the vanilla pod.
  • Add the soften gelatine to the hot cream and stir with whisk until all the gelatine has dissolved.
  • Pour the panna cotta into ramekin moulds. (I used 3 small tumblers as ramekins.)
  • Refrigerate for atleast 4 to 5 hours.
  • Prepare the red berries coulis by blending the berries with the sugar until completely liquid smooth.
  • To unmold the panna cotta, dip the ramekins in cold water. Or if you prefer, serve the panna cotta in the ramekins themselves, (no need to unmold). 
  • Top with the red berries coulis.



Buon Appetito!
