Never be over confident when cooking!

I’d made Panna Cotta a couple of times and thought it pretty simple. Just mix the ingredients, warm it up a bit, stuff the lot into the fridge and wah lah! – delicious desert the next day!

Here’re the steps:

1. Pour 1 cup MILK into a bowl and stir in 10g sachet of (halal) GELATINE. Allow Gelatine to soften for 5 mins.

2. Place 2 cups CREAM, 1/2 cup CASTER SUGAR, 1 tsp finely grated ORANGE ZEST and 1 tsp VANILLA EXTRACT in a saucepan. Slowly bring to boil.

3. Remove from heat and add in the Gelatine and Milk mixture. Stir until it dissolves. Allow to cool for up to 15 mins.

4. Strain the mixture into a jug. Then pour into serving cups. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Serve as is or with your favourite desert sauce or berries.

Easy, right?


I was so over confident that I didn’t read the recipe properly and so put in one and a half cups of sugar instead of just half a cup!

It was the sweetest desert I’ve ever had. As my family refused to eat it, guess who ate yucky sweet panna cotta all week?

P.S There’s an interesting story about haunted houses in The Star. Have a little look!
