Panna cotta Recipe

By Samara on June 8, 2015
It tends to get rather hot in the Karoo during the day, therefore we love serving refreshing deserts to end off indulgent meals. Here is our recipe, which promises to bring back fond memories of your visit to Samara!

Ingredients (Panna cotta)

  • 2 cups of cream
  • 1 cup of full cream milk
  • 1 vanilla pod (split) or 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup castor sugar
  • 3 tsp gelatin, soaked in 2 Tbsp of warm water

Ingredients (Berry coulis)

  • 250g of berries (can be frozen or fresh)
  • ½ cup castor sugar
  • 30ml Framboise liqueur (can be substituted according to personal preference)

Method (Panna cotta)

  • Slowly bring the cream, milk, vanilla and sugar to the boil so that the vanilla has time to infuse its flavour
  • Whisk in the softened gelatin and ensure that it dissolves fully
  • Pour into oiled ramekins and refrigerate until set
  • To turn out the panna cotta, run a knife around the edge of each mould and turn onto serving plate

Method (Berry coulis)

  • Heat the berries and the sugar until sugar is dissolved
  • Pour through a fine sieve to remove any seeds
  • Allow to cool

Serving suggestions

  • Pour berry coulis over the panna cotta
  • Garnish with strawberries and angel hair spun sugar
