Try this easy and quick to make pannacotta recipe with raspberry coulis. It looks wonderful and tastes amazing!
Panna cotta is an Italian traditional dessert made with heavy cream that is set in gelatine and can be aromatized with many flavorings like vanilla, coffee, and so many others. Panna cotta is served with a coulis.
This is the reason I just love pannacotta deserts. We have so many options and it’s so easy and really quick to make. Panna cotta is a simple dessert for summer days but it is also great for a dinner party.
First time I saw this dessert was at a restaurant on a family lunch with my family. When I saw it I thought: “Uau! This is such an elegant and sophisticated dessert!”
I didn´t know pannacotta and so I decided to try it. I was so surprised with my first bite and scarfed the rest down, practically licking my plate clean. It was so, so fantastic. I’m smiling just thinking about it. Definitely, I added pannacotta to my list of favorites recipes
In the next weekend, for our family Sunday lunch, I made this pannacotta that I’m showing you today. Since then I’ve tried so many different pannacotta recipes. The truth is that I became a big big fan of pannacotta.
How to make a perfect Panna Cotta?
For this recipe, I used gelatine sheets, which is more uncommon in the US but I prefer this kind of gelatine because it dissolves easily.
To use gelatine, we first soak it over cold water and let it sit for a few minutes to soften.
In the meantime, we prepare our cream mixture by heating milk, heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla together in a saucepan until hot and the sugar is dissolved. Once hot, we add the softened gelatine and immediately whisk until smooth. Adding the gelatine to a hot mixture is what activates it.
The gelatine can’t be omitted from the recipe, because without it the pannacotta won’t set.
Panna cotta takes a minimum of 4 hours to set, but that depends on the size of your cups. If you use mini individual cups, it would set rather quickly.
I made a video for you explaining how do you make this amazing pannacotta.
