This quintessential Italian dessert is always a crowd-pleaser.

Smooth and delicious, it is very easy to mix together and it best made the day before - so is perfect for stress-free entertaining.



Top with whatever you can find: berries, chocolate... both! This wonderful pudding can be as simple or decadent as you like.

Ingredients

Base your recipe on the following:
For every 100mls of double cream allow 1 sheet of leaf gelatine, 3 drops of vanilla essence and a ¼ teaspoon of castor sugar.

Method

Soften the leaf gelatine in a bowl of cold water and warm the cream sugar and vanilla in a pan to a steaming stage, when the gelatine is softened dissolve it into the warm cream mixture and fill your dish to the brim and chill.

To serve, place the dish in a little hot water and run a knife around the inside of the dish to remove the pannacotta, set on the service plate.

We are all in need of a treat from time to time.

You can indulge your creative side with this recipe - it is fun rather than fiddly and the end product is certainly worth the effort. Whip up for yourself, or impress others with your culinary flair. Either way, take the time to spoil yourself - you deserve it.
