  • gelatine 2 1/2 leaves

  • whole milk 200ml
  • double cream 300ml
  • caster sugar 80g

  • Step 1

    Soak the gelatine leaves in a bowl of cold water. Meanwhile, halve 4 of the passion fruits and scoop out the seeds and pulp.

  • Step 2

    Mix the milk and cream in a bowl, then pour half into a pan and warm over a low heat. Tip in the caster sugar and the passion fruit seeds and pulp, and stir until the sugar has dissolved, then remove from the heat.

  • Step 3

    Squeeze out the gelatine sheets, then add them to the pan and stir until the gelatine has dissolved.

    Strain the liquid through a sieve into a jug and stir in the rest of the milk mixture. Pour into 4 moulds and chill for 4 hours or overnight until set.

  • Step 5

  • Step 6

    Turn out the panna cottas by briefly dipping the bases of the moulds in hot water. Spoon over the passion fruit sauce to serve.
