I was looking for something quite specific to create a secret dish (I’ll let you know closer to the time but don’t want to let the cat out of the bag just yet), when I came across this really easy Panna Cotta recipe.

Tada, Vanilla Agar Panna Cotta!

Here’s the recipe:

  • 1 cup thick cream
  • 1.5 cups full cream milk
  • 4 table spoons sugar
  • 1.5 tea spoons Agar Agar (powdered)
  • Milk, cream, agar, vanilla and some sugar - quick panna cotta. Just heat and eat.

Mix all your ingredients, add your flavouring, and heat up until just below boiling. This will ensure that your agar can melt in and dissolve.

I used a rubber cupcake tray which makes turning out way easier.

Then that is left to do is test out the density of your panna cotta by putting a drop or two on a cold plate and see how it sets and tasting it. I did find that 2 tea spoons of agar was a bit too much for my liking so I would suggest 1.5 tea spoons or even less. Play around with it till you’re happy. Then eat and be more happy 😉

 

Vanilla seeds. Mmmmmm
