Serves: 6 

  • 350ml milk
  • 7g unflavoured gelatine granules
  • 350ml whipping cream
  • 4 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 punnet fresh strawberries, quartered
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 4 tablespoons water

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:18min  ›  Extra time:4hr chilling  ›  Ready in:4hr33min 

  1. Pour the milk into a bowl; sprinkle the gelatine over the milk. Allow mixture to sit until the gelatine softens, about 5 minutes.
  2. Combine the cream and 4 tablespoons sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the gelatine mixture; cook and stir until gelatine dissolves completely, about 3 minutes. Add the vanilla extract. Pour the mixture evenly into ramekins; cover and chill at least 4 hours.
  3. To make the strawberry sauce, combine the strawberries, 2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 4 tablespoons sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat. While the mixture cooks, crush the strawberries with a potato masher. Simmer the sauce until the sugar has dissolved and the sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes; cool.
  4. Remove chilled ramekins from the refrigerator shortly before serving. Dip the bottoms of the ramekins in warm water to help loosen the custard. Run a thin-bladed knife around the inner edge of each ramekin to loosen the dessert; turn onto a dessert plate to unmould. Spoon strawberry sauce over panna cotta to serve.
