Espresso panna cotta

Serve up these elegant puds for a special after-dinner treat.

  • Cooking Time5 mins
  • Serves2
  • DifficultyEasy
120ml whole milk
1 1/2 tsp unflavoured powdered gelatine
350ml double cream
3 heaped tsp instant espresso powder
55g sugar
Pinch salt
1 small white chocolate bar, for garnishing
1 small dark chocolate bar, for garnishing
Place the milk in a heavy, small saucepan. Sprinkle the gelatine over and let stand for 5 minutes to soften the gelatine. Stir over medium heat just until the gelatine dissolves, but the milk does not boil, about 2 minutes. Add the cream, espresso powder, sugar, and salt. Stir over low heat, until the sugar dissolves, about 3 more minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly. Pour the cream mixture into 2 martini glasses, dividing equally. Cover and refrigerate, stirring every 20 minutes during the first hour. Chill until set, at least 6 hours and up to 2 days.

When ready to serve, use a vegetable peeler on the chocolate blocks to create about 1 tbsp each of the white and dark chocolate shavings. Sprinkle the shavings over each panna cotta and serve.
