Panna cotta is a popular Italian dessert. This is basically a cooked cream dessert generally served with fruit coulis,chocolate, caramel or fresh fruit toppings. This is popular because it has a light and creamy texture and also it is an easy to make dessert.
This dessert is so versatile, you could include your own choice of fruits, chocolate, caramel, fudge…etc according to your taste. You could add directly in the pannacotta and set them or you can prepare the plain ones like vanilla, honey or lemon flavoured panna cotta and top it with your choices. Best appealing easy to make dessert which suits all kind of celebrations, get togethers and festivals especially for those special dinners at home with your loved ones.
VANILLA PANNA COTTA
For Vanilla Panna cotta:
1 cup Milk
2 cups Cream/ whipping cream
1 tbsp Gelatine
½ cup Sugar
1tsp Vanilla essence
Pinch of salt
For Chocolate Sauce:
250 ml Water
48g Corn syrup
63g Unsweetened chocolate, melted
Vanilla Panna Cotta:
In a pan sprinkle the gelatine as a thin layer.
Add the milk over it and allow to stand for 5 minutes to soak the gelatine.
Now switch on the gas and cook on low flame and constantly stir gently with a ladle to prevent sticking at the bottom
When the milk gets heated up the gelatine dissolves in. Now add the sugar and salt; mix well to dissolve.
When the milk is about to boil reduce the flame and add the cream and allow the cream to get heated through for a minute (no need to boil); Add in the vanilla essence and switch off the gas.
Put in a mould of your choice, like a glass, a tiny bowl, small ramekin or even a serving spoon and place in the fridge to set.
Combine the water, sugar, and corn syrup and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
Boil 1 minute and remove from heat. Let cool 1–2 minutes.
Melt the chocolate and butter together over low heat. Stir until smooth.
Very slowly stir the hot syrup into the chocolate.
Place over moderate heat and bring to a boil. Boil 4 minutes.
Remove from heat and cool.
