Elderflower pannacotta

Perfect idea for a light summery dessert. No need to make it in the season- just use the elderflower cordial.

Preparation time 25 minutes .. Cooling 4 hours


  • 100 ml whole milk
  • 400 ml double cream
  • 20 g caster sugar
  • 3 sheets leaf gelatine
  • seeds from ½ vanilla pod
  • 2 tbsp elderflower cordial


You will need 4 individual pudding basins or ramekin dishes.

In a saucepan, bring the milk, cream and sugar to a gentle boil and simmer for a few minutes. You want to just scald the liquid but you do not want it to bubble furiously. Take off the heat and allow to cool.

Soak the gelatine leaves in warm water until soft. Shake off any water and add them to the warm cream mixture along with the vanilla seeds and elderflower cordial and mix well. Allow the mixture to cool completely, giving it a stir occasionally as it does so, then pour into individual pudding basins and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

Serve with a handful of berries.
