Vanilla Panna cotta - 1

Vanilla Panna Cotta

I’ve decided to start this blog with the first dessert I tried making – The Italian panna cotta which means ‘cooked cream’. I made my first panna cotta out of boredom whilst I was at University and I have been able to develop a recipe which works perfectly i.e. having the wobbly effect without melting quickly.  Here you go:

Prep time: 2mins│Cook time: 10mins│Ready in: 4 hour│Servings: 2 people


  • 2. gelatin leaves
  • 35g. Sugar
  • 90ml. Double cream
  • 90ml. Milk
  • 1 tspn of Vanilla extract

Let’s get started:-

Soak the gelatine leaves in water until it is soft

Place the milk, double cream and sugar in a pan, and bring slowly to the boil

Add vanilla

For example, I made a Plum caramel sauce click here and a caramel shard with mine.
