Classic Panna Cotta with Fresh Berries Recipe


Panna Cotta is a classic Italian custard. Generally it contains gelatin rather than eggs for thickening, and is often served with fresh fruit. It’s a popular menu item in Italian restaurants, and when made correctly, is smooth and rich. “Panna Cotta” literally means cooked cream. In the following Classic Panna Cotta with Fresh Berries, a cream/milk mixture is heated in the microwave just until hot; it’s important that the mixture not be allowed to boil. Unflavored gelatin is sprinkled over, and stirred in until dissolved. Once poured into small ramekins, it takes only a couple of hours to set.

This yummy dessert is quick and easy to put together; it showcases the beautiful berries that are available, and is rich enough that a small serving satisfies. Although delicious anytime, the fact that this dish is red, white, and blue, makes it ideal for the 4th of July or any patriotic holiday. Any berries or seasonal fresh fruit can be used.

6 Servings

2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 dash salt

1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin, (1 1/2 envelopes)
1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup blueberries
1 cup raspberries
3 tablespoons sugar

Mint sprigs, for garnish
  1. Spray 6 1/2-cup ramekins with non-stick spray; set aside.
  2. Whisk together the heavy cream, milk, powdered sugar and salt in a large microwave-safe bowl.
  3. Microwave 3-4 minutes or until the mixture is hot, but not boiling.
  4. Sprinkle the gelatin over, and whisk for several minutes until it is dissolved; stir in the vanilla.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared ramekins.
  6. Refrigerate 2-4 hours (or up to a couple of days) until the mixture is set.
  7. Meanwhile, mix the blueberries, raspberries, and sugar in a bowl and let them macerate for 30 minutes to an hour, stirring occasionally so that the sugar dissolves.
  8. Run a knife around the outside of each ramekin, place a small serving plate over, and invert.
  9. Spoon the berry mixture over the unmolded puddings and garnish with fresh mint sprigs.
