This is one of the classics amongst the "dolci al cucchiaio" (spoon desserts) and there is not much to say about it, except  that it is delicious and very easy to make. There are many versions of panna cotta and the one I am going to present to you is the panna cotta flavoured with coffee and vanilla.

Ingredients (U.S. measurements): 

  • 2 1/8 cups Double cream

  • 3 ounces Caster Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Instant coffee
  • 1 tablespoon Dark rum (alternatively use brandy)

Directions:

Stir gently for a few minutes until the cream gets close to the simmer point (avoid boiling the cream).

If you have a thermometer, check that the cream reaches 90ºC (193ºF) and, at that point, remove the pan from the heat.

Now, pour the cream into the glasses (I usually fill 4 glasses half way) and put the glasses in the fridge for about 4-6 hours so that the panna cotta has time to set.

Finally, when you want to eat your panna cotta, I suggest you dust it with some cocoa powder and that's it.

 

Enjoy it!
