DifficultyBeginnerMakes4 Servings

This vanilla panna cotta recipe is super simple – with only 5 ingredients! It’s super creamy and light and is a brilliant Italian dessert for a dinner party or a date night.

I’ve made mine with a fresh vanilla pod to get maximum flavour, but you could add vanilla bean paste instead (you’ll need about 1/2 tsp). No vanilla extract please!

Note the recipe doesn’t include the chocolate top and pouring cream – this was just something a little extra for Instagram 😂. You could pair it with a berry sauce, some fresh fruit, or some whipped cream. Or simply enjoy it as is.

Wastch the video and follow the step-by-step recipe for this delicious vanilla bean panna cotta.
