Panna cotta is a traditional Italian dessert which literally translates as ‘cooked cream’. Its quick and easy and requires minimal skill and time. It can be made the day before serving so it can save time before a dinner party. 

It’s a go-to summer dessert, perfect for the warmer months. The easy, light texture makes it super indulging to eat and is the perfect dessert to enjoy whilst sitting at home with the family. The delicious no- bake dessert will WOW all your guests and on top of that only takes 5 minutes to prep!!

The best thing is that the pairing possibilities are endless so its different every time!




    Here's the short and sweet step by step recipe!


    In a small mixing bowl, add in the cornflour, agar agar powder and 1 tbsp of milk. Then whisk them all together until there are no lumps. This is so it all combines evenly in the larger quantity of milk


    On a low-medium heat add all of the ingredients into a large saucepan. Continuously whisk the mixture so it combines well and nothing burns at the bottom and sides.


    Bring the milk to a boil and continuously stir to prevent any burning. This will make your life easier too when it comes to the washing up :)


    Pour the mixture into your preferred container or dish and then set it aside to cool. Once it is mostly cool, place it flat into your refrigerator. It should take around 40 mins to set but it depends on your fridge. Just have a feel of it and see if it needs more time! Pop it out the mould and enjoy! You can serve with berries, fruits, crushed biscuits and nuts, chocolate sauce and there are so many other possibilities!

      Hello, I’m planning on trying this recipe this evening. If change the flavour, how much flavouring would I need to add?

        Hi, thanks for the comment.
        You would put around 1/2 if it’s and essence depending on how strong you want the flavour to be. You can also use something like mango pulp in the milk, you would add approx 1/2 a cup of this.
        Hope that helps
