Panna Cotta with Davidson Plum

Did you watch Masterchef the other day and see the celebration of Australia, Indigenous culture and Australian native ingredients? It was certainly a show to watch and left many feeling inspired to start cooking with native ingredients or expand their recipe repertoire. 

Panna Cotta with Davidson Plum was one of the hero dishes and we searched the internet for an easy recipe for you to create in the kitchen. Topped with Davidson Plum Powder, this is going to be a dessert to impress!

The gelatin can’t be omitted from the recipe, because without it the panna cotta won’t set. Panna cotta takes a minimum of 4 hours to set, but that depends on the size of your cups. If you use mini individual cups, it would set rather quickly.

Dress up your Panna Cotta with Davidson Plum Powder, Desert Lime, Kakadu Plum Powder and fresh berries and fruit. You can be as creative as you like here! 


  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) cold water or milk

  • 2 1/4 teaspoons (7 g/0.25 oz.) unflavored powdered gelatin*

  • 2 cups (480 ml) heavy cream

  • 1/4 cup (50 g/1.8 oz.) granulated sugar

  • 1/2 vanilla bean, split and seeded, or 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  1. Place water in a small bowl and sprinkle gelatin over the surface in a single layer. Be sure not to pile it as that will prevent the crystals from dissolving properly. Let stand for 5-10 minutes to soften.

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, heat cream, sugar, vanilla pod, and vanilla seeds on medium heat and bring just to a boil until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and discard vanilla bean. Stir in gelatin and immediately whisk until smooth and dissolved. If the gelatin hasn’t fully dissolved, return the saucepan to the stove and heat gently over low heat. Stir constantly and don’t let the mixture boil.

  3. Pour cream into 4 individual serving dishes. Refrigerate for at least 2-4 hours, or until completely set.

  4. If you like, top with fresh fruit, berries,

  5. Panna cotta can be covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated for up to 3 days.

Extra notes: 

* If using sheet gelatin, use the same weight (7g). Add the sheets to a bowl filled with 2 cups water. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, then remove the sheets and stir them into the hot panna cotta as directed in the recipe (you don’t need to add it along with the water, such as in powdered gelatin - add the sheets only).
