Panna Cotta With Fresh Strawberry Sauce

    (36)
    4 hours 35 mins

    My own version of the Italian dessert favourite. 'Panna Cotta' literally means 'cooked cream.' I made it for my husband to take to a work function and they loved it! They send him home with a request for it every year now! I created the simple strawberry sauce to accompany it. It really makes the dish!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) milk
    • 1 (8g) envelope unflavored gelatin
    • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) thickened cream
    • 1/4 cup (55g) caster sugar
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 1 litre fresh strawberries, quartered
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 1/4 cup (55g) caster sugar
    • 1/4 cup (60ml) water

    Directions
    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:4hr chilling  ›  Ready in:4hr35min 

    1. Pour the milk into a bowl; sprinkle the gelatin over the milk. Allow mixture to sit until the gelatin softens, about 5 minutes.
    2. Combine the cream and 1/4 cup sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the gelatin mixture; cook and stir until gelatin dissolves completely, about 3 minutes. Add the vanilla extract. Pour the mixture evenly into ramekins; cover and chill at least 4 hours.
    3. To make the strawberry sauce, combine the strawberries, 2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/4 cup sugar, and water in a saucepan over medium heat. While the mixture cooks, crush the strawberries with a potato masher. Simmer the sauce until the sugar has dissolved and the sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes; cool.
    4. Remove chilled ramekins from the refrigerator shortly before serving. Dip the bottoms of the cups in warm water to help loosen the custard. Run a thin-bladed knife around the inner edge of each ramekin to loosen the dessert; turn onto a dessert plate to unmold. Spoon strawberry sauce over panna cotta to serve.

    this is a good one. if you really find it quite hard to remove from the ramekins, you can also let it chill and serve in wineglass for a different look then garnish with sliced strawberries on top .. yumyum..  -  05 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I spent all day in the kitchen fixing dinner for my boyfriend's birthday but I should have just made this! My strawberries were particularly juicy so I didn't add any water to the sauce. It was so easy to make but looked/tasted like I'd spent all day on it. He lived in Rome for several years and insists that the panna cotta had the perfect consistency and taste. A definite must-try!  -  15 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I'm italian, I live in italy and this is the dessert I make everytime I have no time to do something more complicate! It's very easy and everyone love it! In season I use strawberry like this recipe, when they are expensive, I use maple syrup or melted chocolate! If you want a chocolate version, you can add some dark chocolate to the cream and make it melting with gelatin.  -  07 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
