This Vanilla Panna Cotta is one of the most decadent and delicious dessert you will taste. Topped with strawberry sauce, garnished with berries and crushed pistachio nuts. This will amaze you! Panna Cotta means “cooked cream” in Italian.
Most panna cottas are made using gelatine which sometimes can be problematic. If the gelatine has been stored for months or years and becomes old, chances are it won’t set properly. If there’s too much gelatine, your decadent dessert can turn into hockey puck. Great if you own a hockey stick and love sports! Gelatine can also have a peculiar smell at times. This version, using egg whites, is more traditional and gives you amazing results. Plus everyone has access to eggs, gelatine is a harder to come by. I have nothing against panna cotta made using gelatine if made right, it is just a little trickier to get perfect.
Buy a good quality cream with high fat content. It is after all about the cream. Resting it in the fridge overnight will make them a little firmer and easier to unmould. But if you’re in a hurry, 4 hours is a minimum. Once unmoulded, you should see a nice jiggle to them, if you do, then you know you have perfection! Top them with the strawberry sauce, garnish with berries, pistachio nuts and you’ll find yourself in paradise. Just make sure you come back for more! Enjoy my vanilla panna cotta today!
