Vanilla panna cotta with strawberries

June 13, 2010

I have loved panna cotta for a long time, but for some reason I haven’t made it myself until now. Now I am kicking myself for that, since it is just about the easiest and tastiest dessert in the world! I found the recipe on the lovely Anne’s blog; and I highly recommend both this recipe and her blog in general; she really knows her cakes and desserts!


Please try this dessert; I promise you will love it! 



0,5 liter/17 oz heavy cream
1 vanilla bean
50 g/1/4 cup sugar
Some lemon peel
2 plates of gelatine


How to:

Pour the cream into a small pot and add sugar, lemon peel, vanilla seeds (that have been scraped out) along with the empty vanilla bean. Warm up the mixture until right before it starts to boil. Soak the gelatine in cold water. When the creamy wonder is done, squeeze the water from the plates and add them to the mixture. Mix it until it is smooth and not lumpy.


Pour the vanilla/cream mixture into serving dishes (and leave the whole bean behind) and place them in the fridge for at least 3-4 hours, or until you are ready to consume this winning dessert.


Fresh strawberries is the perfect fruit to go with the panna cotta. If they are nice and sweet, serve them naked, the way they are on top of the silky smooth vanilla pudding. My berries were bad though; sour and tasteless, so I used a little trick I know. I cut them into large pieces in the morning, sprinkled a couple tablespoons of sugar over them, and tossed it all together. Then when I checked on them before dinner, they were sweet and full of flavor. It was magic!  


This dessert rocks, so thank you Anne for starting this panna cotta fairytale! 



Psssst! The panna cotta is right underneath the strawberries that you see in the pictures. I didn’t realize that there wasn’t one photo that showed the actual panna cotta, until after they were all eaten. Sorry!

    Det gør vist intet, at billeder af selve panna cotta’en ikke er med, når dine jordbærbilleder er så fine så fine 🙂

      Tak Nadia, det er sødt af dig, men det er måske alligevel ikke det smarteste ikke at have et billede af hovedrolleindehaveren… Det er til gengæld fedt at jordbær er så taknemmelige på billeder!

    Det skal vist prøves, jeg har heller ikke prøvet at lave Vanilje panna cotta, og det lyder som om, at det ikke er særlig besværligt, så den står på programmet!

      Hej Vibeke.
      Ja, du må endelig prøve opskriften; det er noget nær den nemmeste dessert jeg har lavet. Derudover smager den som en million, og mine gæster var helt forelskede i den. Kh Kristina
