Brown sugar panna cotta and red fruit

Easy peasy dessert recipe! If I can make it everyone can!

Ingredients:


  • 200ml cream
  • 200ml milk
  • 70gr. brown sugar
  • juice of  a lime
  • 2 sheets of gelatine
  • 50gr. of cristal sugar
  • one vanilla pod
  • some handfulls of fruit: strawberry, wraspberry, blackberry,....
Cut the vanilla pod lengthwise in half and scrape out the seeds. Add the stalks together with the seeds to the milk.
Soak the sheets of gelatine in some cold water.
Heat up the cream together with the milk, brown sugar,vanilla and lime juice in a pan for about 5 mins. Keep it just under the boiling point. Stirr regulary cause this can burn quite fast!


After the +/- 5mins pas the mixture trough a siff and add the sheets of gelatine and let them dissolve in the cream.

Pour into 4 nice cups and set away in the fridge for about 2 hours.


You can serve this with some red fruit or make a coulis to nap over the panna cotta.


For the coulis:  Heat up some water in a pan and dissolve the cristal sugar in it. Don't use too much water you just want to make the sugar liquid. 
Add fruit till the pan is just full and let this turn into a nice compote in about 2 minutes on a high heat. Nap over the panna cotta, place some berries on top and serve.


Enjoy,
