Panna Cotta is incredibly easy to make even though it’s name sounds fancy. Add Grand Marnier to your panna cotta and you have something a little more grown up/boozy than the classic vanilla panna cotta. If you feel like substituting citrus flavours then may I suggest a limoncello panna cotta. Use lemon zest instead of orange, and limoncello instead of Grand Marnier.
Another little note on this recipe, I have the quantities to make enough for two people but multiply up for more. It is very easy to get the proportions as you use your containers to measure the ingredients. Beautiful glasses or kitsch tea cups make great containers, the recipe asks you to fill them with milk/cream to the level you want to serve at.
IngredientsMilk filled to serving level of one teacup 1 heaped tsp powdered gelatin 2 tbsp caster sugar Double cream filled to serving level of one teacup Slosh, approx 1-2 tbsp Grand Marnier few zests of orange
Pour the milk into a saucepan and gently heat, add the powdered gelatin. DO NOT LET THE MILK BOIL! Once the gelatin has dissolved add the sugar. Dissolve the sugar in the milk, but once again do not let it boil!
Take off the heat and whisk in the cream, Grand Marnier and orange zest. Pour back into the teacups. Place the panna cotta in the fridge to set for 1-2 hours.
Grand Marnier Panna Cotta is delicious served with fresh strawberries.
