For this week’s Sunday Supper, we had to come up with recipes with 5 or less ingredients. This could be a challenge, but one that I like! To tell you the truth, many Italian recipes have just few ingredients as we like to keep things simple, most of the time. This week though I really wanted to share a dessert recipe, so what to make?? Easy… a panna cotta, a dessert that never fails me. The basic panna cotta is made with just 5 ingredients: milk, cream, sugar, gelatine and then the flavouring. Can you believe it? I still had some of the orchid extract that I used to make my Orchid and Matcha Macarons and so… here goes my Orchid Panna Cotta! It was delicious. For all of you who missed out on the macaron recipe and are wondering what orchids taste like… well, they taste like vanilla, but have a stronger floral hint. This panna cotta was delicate and flowery at the same time. Make sure to check out all the yummy links at the end of this post to see what my fellow bloggers have come up with! Enjoy and thank you very much to Alice of Hip Foodie Mom for being a great host!
Orchid Panna Cotta #SundaySupper
You won't believe it but this Orchid Panna Cotta requires only 5 ingredients!
- 300 ml – 10 oz. heavy cream
- 100 ml – 3.5 oz. milk
- 80 gms – 2.7 oz. sugar
- 3 sheets 6 gms – 0.2 oz. of gelatine or 2 tsp of gelatine powder
- 2 tsp of orchid extract I use Artgato Orchid Essence.
Put the gelatine sheets in cold water for 10 minutes.
Put the milk, cream and sugar in a pot and heat it on the fire, stirring gently until the sugar melts.
Add the orchid extract and mix.
Squeeze the extra water out of the gelatine leaves and add them into the hot cream mixture. Stir well to dissolve.
Wet 4x100 ml (3.5 oz.) moulds with water (this will help to release the panna cotta when you are ready to serve it). Pour the mixture into the wet moulds and keep them in the fridge at least 4 hours or overnight to set.
When you want to serve, unmould the panna cotta and serve immediately.

I’ve never tried orchid extract, but now I’m curious! I adore panna cotta, and yours is gorgeous.
You know I haven’t really worked much with flower flavourings but this sounds very interesting.
Shannon R says
I had no idea panna cotta could be so easy. Thanks for the great recipe.
Marlene @Nosh My Way says
Manu: You make this look as simple as the ingredients in the recipe. Such a tropical feel with the orchid too.
How stunning is that, I have never seen orchid extract before or knew it existed!! Thank you so much for sharing!!
Manu ~ what beautiful presentation; just simply gorgeous. I for one have never tasted orchid or can even recollect their scent. Is it flowery just like roses?
It looks delicious and I will need to give Panna Cotta a try with my usual adaptions. Thank you!

Mireya @myhealthyeatinghabits says
Orchid panecotta? Wow, now that is really special. What a delicacy! I’d love to try that! The flowers are so beautiful, too.
I lived for years and years in the land of orchids (That is to say, Asia, including Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia) and never knew they could be used for flavoring. What a beautiful panna cotta, Manu!
That is absolutely beautiful! Too pretty to eat 🙂
My grandmother has orchids on her back porch, they are such a beautiful flower and really elevate your panna cotta…Love it!
Bobbi's Kozy Kitchen says
How gorgeous is this? Manuela you outdid yourself this week!
Dionne Baldwin says
WOW I really want to try an orchid! A floral vanilla sounds delicious and unlike anything I have ever tasted before. This is going on my culinary bucket list. 🙂
Cindys Recipes and Writings says
So lovely, Manu! I love everything about orchids! they look so special on your plate!
Orchid extract? Oh my. I have to investigate that and try this recipe.
Laurie @ Frosting and a Smile says
Oh Manuela! This falls into the “too pretty to eat” category! I’ve never heard of Orchid extract and now I have to get my hands on it. I’m imagining an Orchid frosting on a light fluffy cake.
