1/3 cup (80ml) skim (fat-free) milk
1 (8g) envelope unflavored gelatin
2 1/2 cups (625ml) thickened cream
1/2 cup (110g) caster sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Prep:5min › Cook:10min › Extra time:4hr chilling › Ready in:4hr15min
1. Pour milk into a small bowl, and stir in the gelatin powder. Set aside.
2. In a saucepan, stir together the thickened cream and sugar, and set over medium heat. Bring to a full boil, watching carefully, as the cream will quickly rise to the top of the pan. Pour the gelatin and milk into the cream, stirring until completely dissolved. Cook for one minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, stir in the vanilla and pour into six individual ramekin dishes.
3. Cool, the ramekins uncovered at room temperature. When cool, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight before serving.
Topping fruits and sweet syrups are optional but they really add up the excitement to your Panna Cotta.
