Panna Cotta

Panna Cotta is actually such an easy dessert, but easily a boring one too. It is all in the presentation, and of course in the taste. I have here a recipe that is very easy to make and a guaranteed success. One can prepare everything already a day in advance, making the day of the party a breeze

Ingredients for 10 people

500 ml cream
150 ml milk
65 gm caster sugar
6 gelatine leaves
1 vanilla pods

Soften the gelatine sheets; bring the cream, milk, caster sugar and vanilla to the boil. Take off the heat add the gelatine sheets to the mix, pass. Allow the mix to cool down and to start to set. Whisk the mix so the vanilla pods spread through the mix. Pipe the mix into creme caramel dishes ¾ full. Allow to set over night

250 g Mixed frozen berries
75 g Sugar
20 g Corn starch
150 g Strawberries
150 g Blueberries
150 g Raspberries

120 ml egg whites (approx. 3)
130 grams icing sugar
130 grams plain flour
130 grams butter, melted
vanilla essence

Combine the egg whites, icing sugar and flour, add the melted butter and a drop of vanilla essence and mix well. Refrigerate until cold.

Preheat the oven to 170°C. Spread the mixture thinly onto a buttered baking tray. Bake until golden. While still warm and soft, use a knife to cut out 11 x 7cm rectangles. Allow to cool.
