Sounds really good! My mom made a vanilla-infused pannacotta the other night, served in glasses, and topped with a rhubarb-caramel - it was absolutely great, I have to ask how she made that. It was really creamy, which is how I like my pannacotta. :)


I've never made pannacotta before, but I think I'll have to now...and soon. This looks (and sounds! divine!


Hi Johanna,
I have been trying lots of different panna cotta recipes and also got to the conclusion, that I prefer it with less gelatine ;)
When I make panna cotta for 4, I have 400-500 ml liquid (cream with or without fruit puree) and only 2 sheets of gelatine. But sometimes the unmolding part ends in a bit of mess...
Nevertheless your creation looks extraordinary and so stylish!

Your panna cotta came out looking a whole lot better than my last attempt. I guess I will have to try again. I love the use of pasion fruit - great idea.


I am thinking now that I might try making it in a bain marie next time and not use any gelatine... and have serve them in the glass, so i don't have to worry about unmoulding them! anyone with a recipe out there, do get in touch!


I am also madly in love with passionfruit. Thank you for sharing this great recipe. I am definitely going to make it. getting more passion fruit this week.Have none left in the house.otherwise would have done it today.


I need to create a delicious dessert to follow a Thai banquet so I tried your recipe but substituted lychee puree for passionfruit. I whipped double cream and sugar to soft peaks over bain marie, added softened 4 gelatine leaves and then poured in the lychee puree only to be horrified as the whole thing curdled into cheese and lychee flavoured water. I'm going to retry but with natural yogurt. I'll let you know.

Wow, just got back from Maui and made a KILLER passion fruit pudding with strawberries. I got home this morning and googled a panna cotta with passion fruit because I thought it would be so divine and there you are. I LOVE what you did with it. I will have to try this recipe next time.
