    A delicious creamy dessert which is prepared ahead. Make the berry sauce about one hour before serving the panna cotta.

    Serves: 6 

    • For the panna cottas
    • 2 teaspoons plain gelatine
    • 1/4 cup (65ml) cold water
    • 3 cups (750ml) cream
    • 1/2 cup (90g) icing sugar, sifted
    • 1 (4cm long) vanilla bean, split lengthwise
    • For the berry sauce
    • 300g frozen mixed berries, thawed
    • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
    • 2 tablespoons brandy

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Extra time:8hours chilling  ›  Ready in:8hours20min 

    1. In a small bowl, soften gelatine in cold water; set aside. Place cream, icing sugar and vanilla bean in a saucepan. Stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a simmer. Simmer gently for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and discard the vanilla bean.
    2. Add gelatine and water to the hot cream mixture. Stir until gelatine dissolves. Pour into 6 lightly oiled 1/2-cup dariole moulds (or other small cylindrical moulds) and refrigerate overnight or at least 8 hours.
    3. To make the berry sauce, combine berries and sugar in a bowl. Crush berries slightly with the back of a spoon and mix in the brandy. Let stand for an hour until it has a syrupy consistency.
    4. Unmould panna cottas and serve with berry sauce.
