Happy Easter everybody

I put together a little easter basket for the bf and his family and I decided to make Panna cotta for the first time.I've always viewed it as a fancy dessert and love ordering them at restaurants but never knew how easy it was to actually make it.

I found the recipe on David Le Bovitz's blog but I'll type it up again (with slight changes) on here for those that are too lazy to view it. Also I didn't unmould the panna cotta but placed them in.....tealight candle holders haha. I was searching for glasses that were larger than shot glasses but smaller than drinking glasses and these were the perfect size!


4 cups thickened cream
1/2 cup (100g) sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
4 1/2 teaspoons powdered gelatin
6 tablespoons (90ml) cold water
1 packet Raspberry Jelly


1. Heat the heavy cream and sugar in a saucepan or microwave. Once the sugar is dissolved, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.

2. Sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water in a medium-sized bowl and let stand 5 to 10 minutes.

4. Pour the very warm Panna Cotta mixture over the gelatin and stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved.

5. Divide the Panna Cotta mixture into the prepared cups, then chill them until firm, which will take at least four hours.

6.Make the jelly according the instructions on the packet, cool and pour on top of the panna cotta. Chill for at least 4 hours. Serve cold.
