Panna Cotta with A Wild Berry Sauce

Panna Cotta with A Wild Berry Sauce

Kyle Phillips Licensed to About.Com
Here's a recipe for Panna Cotta, a delightfully delicate traditional Piemontese pudding. The wild berry sauce is a perfect complement, though you will also encounter other toppings, including chocolate.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 4 servings panna cotta


  • 1 quart (1 liter) cream
  • 1 1/8 cups (250 g) granulated sugar
  • 3 sheets fish glue or unflavored gelatin (check the the packet for how much you will need to thicken this volume)
  • 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 1 cup (250 ml) milk


Warm the milk (don't let it boil), then dissolve the fish glue in it and stir in the flour. Meanwhile, bring the cream to a boil for a couple of minutes, with 1 cup of the sugar. Remove from the fire and gently stir in the milk mixture.

Caramelize the remaining sugar and coat the insides of 8 individual-portion custard cups. Fill them with the cream mixture, and chill for 2 hours before serving.

Unmold them onto pretty plates when you serve them.

This is the basic recipe; you can also make a sauce with fresh red & black currants, blueberries, and wild strawberries. Combine them (the amounts are up to you) with a tablespoon of currant jelly and gently warm them over the fire till the fruit is cooked and begins to come apart.

Spoon a bit of sauce over each serving.

Panna Cotta, Member mexilady

I have made this for more than 10 times, in a big mold always, and my friends want me to sell it as it is just super delicious, I also change it some times, I put a little dark chocolate, coffee and some cognac together and some times I puree some mango mixed together, another one with one cup of "" cajeta "" Mexican sweets and take of one cup of the cream. There is nothing more fantastic and delicious as this panna cotta. as I arrange it with fresh flowers and it looks just amazing.
