How to Make Panna Cotta

Panna cotta is an Italian dessert made of cream, sugar, milk, gelatin, and flavoring. The flavoring used is often vanilla, but there are variations of this dessert using coffee or caramel.

5-Minute Crafts put together step-by-step instructions on how to cook panna cotta with a strawberry topping.

Kitchen utensils

You’ll need:

  • a small pot or a saucepan

  • a whisk

  • a tablespoon

  • 2 small bowls or ramekins for ready-made desserts


2 portions of panna cotta call for:

  • 200 ml of light cream

  • 200 ml of milk

  • 2 tbsp of water

  • 3 tbsp of sugar

  • 1/2 tbsp of gelatin

  • 1/2 tbsp of vanilla

  • strawberry jam as per your taste

How to cook it

Step 1. Combine gelatin with water, mix well, and leave it to swell for 5-10 minutes.

Step 2. Pour 200 ml of cream and 200 ml of milk into the pot.

Step 3. Add sugar.

Step 4. Place the pot over low heat and bring to a simmer. Keep stirring the milk and cream constantly until the sugar is completely dissolved. Don’t bring it to a boil.

Step 5. Remove the pot from the stove and leave it to cool down for 5-10 minutes. Afterward, add the vanilla and the swollen gelatin.

Step 6. Thoroughly mix the ingredients until the gelatin has dissolved completely.

Step 7. Pour the panna cotta into the bowls or ramekins.

Step 8. Place the bowls into the fridge for at least 4 hours, or if possible, overnight.

Step 9. Get the panna cotta out of the fridge and place several spoonfuls of strawberry jam on top — now the dessert is ready to serve.
