For Mother's Day! Panna Cotta

For Mother's Day! Panna Cotta

Here's an angel dessert made in a circular tube pan. This is for my mother.

Ingredients: 17cm ring pan

300 ml
3 tablespoons
Condensed milk
3 tablespoons
Heavy cream
200 ml
10 g
Vanilla essence (or liquor)
As needed
Strawberries (optional)
As needed


1. Soak gelatin in 2 tablespoons of water.
2. Add ingredients plus the gelatin in a pot, and simmer to dissolve. Do not bring to boil. (You could also microwave.)
3. When it's completely cooled down, add heavy cream and vanilla essence.
4. Pour into a damp ring pan and chill in the fridge. For best results, dip the bottom in hot water before flipping over.
5. Make them in cups if you're giving them away for gifts. So tasty.
6. If you make cuts into the strawberries near the hull and spread each piece, it will turn out nice and pretty like a fan.

Story Behind this Recipe

I thought of making a chilled desert with a circular tube pan, but then bavarois was kind of indiscreet... (←I made the right choice here!)

[Translator's notes] In Japanese, another way to say old women is babā, but this has a negative connotation. Here, the author is making a pun with babaroa - the Japanese word for bavarois - and babā. Hence, she is suggesting that making bavarois will definitely ruin the Mother's Day celebration.
