Cafe Sicilia's Espresso Panna Cotta

Cafe Sicilia shares a tasty dessert with us. This time enjoy Espresso Panna Cotta


Espresso Panna Cotta

This gorgeous creamy dessert is the perfect way to end a meal. The recipe serves 4 if made in 5oz ramekins. If you wish to follow the current trend of serving petite desserts you could serve it in smaller martini or other pretty glasses which may give you more servings depending on the size of the glass. If you do decide to serve the panna cotta in a glass it has the added bonus of not having to unmold your dessert!


Ingredients

2 cups plus 3 tablespoons heavy cream

1/3 cup milk

1/4 cup prepared espresso. ( you could replace the prepared espresso with 1 1/2 tablespoons coffee granules dissolved in 1/4 cup boiling water)

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

3 sheets leaf gelatin

pinch of salt


Method

Place the gelatin sheets in a small bowl of cold water and leave for 5 - 10 minutes, until softened.

Put the cream, milk, espresso and sugar in a small heavy based saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat and bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat. Stir in the vanilla and pinch of salt.

Squeeze out the soaked gelatin leaves and stir into the hot cream, mixing well until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Pour the mixture through a sieve into a pitcher. Cool slightly.

Pour the mixture into the moulds or glasses.

Refrigerate overnight to set.

Decorate as desired and serve with whipped cream.

Buon Appetito!
