Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Total: 30 minutes



  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp gelatin powder
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 2 oranges, peeled and segmented
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • Fresh mint leaves, for garnish


  1. In a medium saucepan, heat the heavy cream and granulated sugar over medium heat until steaming. Stir in the vanilla extract and remove from heat.

  2. In a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin powder over the cold water. Let it sit for 5 minutes until it becomes gel-like.

  3. Slowly pour the gelatin mixture into the warm cream, whisking continuously until fully dissolved.

  4. Divide the mixture among 4 ramekins or dessert glasses. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or until set.

  5. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler on high. Place the orange segments on a baking sheet and sprinkle with brown sugar. Broil for 3-5 minutes until the sugar has caramelized.

  6. Remove the panna cotta from the refrigerator. Top each with caramelised oranges and garnish with fresh mint leaves.

  7. Serve chilled and enjoy!
