Panna Cotta with Raspberry Sauce

Life is short so there is nothing wrong with a little bit of indulgence with this elegant and beautiful Italian dessert. You can serve this dessert with caramel sauce, mocha or chocolate sauce but I like mine with some raspberry sauce.

Ingredients :

1 tbsp of gelatin powder
1 cup of light cream
1/4 cup of sugar
1 1/4 cup of milk
1 tsp of vanilla

Raspberry sauce :

2 cup of raspberries
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of water

1) Put 2 tbsp of water in a small bowl and sprinkle in the gelatin powder and set aside to bloom.
2) Put the cream, milk and sugar in a small saucepan and cook over low heat until sugar dissolved.
3) Add in the gelatin and continue to stir until gelatin dissolved. Add in vanilla.
4) Pour the mixture into small cups or ramekins and refrigerate until set.
5) Combine raspberries, sugar and lemon juice in a saucepan. Cook until raspberries are broken down. It will take about 10 minutes.
6) Remove from heat and strain through a sieve to remove the seeds.
7) Pour sauce over the panna cotta and garnish with some fresh fruits

Simply gorgeous! I fell in love with Panna Cotta when my gf V served me some of her blueberries panna cotta last year...YUM!

Oh by the way, what is light cream? half & half? Your recipe seem to be less sinful compared to whole cream.

the photos are stunning. you're definitely right though, life is too short to hold out on panna cotta. especially if it's with raspberries.

Jaclyn said...

Hi. I copied your recipe a while back but am only now ready to make it. I noticed in your 5th step you mentioned lemon juice. How much should we put in? it wasn't mentioned it the ingredients.
Thanks a lot!
