Cinammon Panna Cotta with Caramelised Apple

I’ve made green tea panna cotta before, and was thoroughly impressed. Thinking of another twist on this amazing dish, I came up with this cinnamon version with caramelised apple – it is extremely simple, and a perfect end to any dinner party.


Ingredients (to make 4):

  • 300ml double cream
  • 300ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 100g sugar
  • 3tsp ground cinnamon (or use a stick of cinnamon if available)
  • 3 x leaves gelatine
  • 2 x apples
  • 25g butter
  • 1 cup light brown muscovado sugar


  1. Fill a small bowl with cold water and place the gelatine leaves in the bowl to soak for 10 minutes
  2. While the gelatine is soaking, add the double cream, milk, sugar and cinnamon to a saucepan and heat (stirring occasionally) until it starts to bubble
  3. Remove from the heat and continue to stir for around 30 seconds
  4. Remove the gelatine leaves from the bowl of water, squeeze to remove excess water and then add to the saucepan, stirring until it has fully dissolved
  5. Pour the mixture into 4 ramekins and leave to stand for 30 minutes
  6. Place the ramekins into the fridge and leave for around 4 hours to set
  7. 10 minutes before serving, cut the apples into slices
  8. Heat the butter in a saucepan until it has melted and add the apple slices. Cook for around 5 minutes, then add 1tbsp water
  9. Add the muscovado sugar and continue to cook for around 2 minute, then remove from the heat
  10. Take the ramekins from the fridge and run a knife around the outside of the panna cotta
  11. Place the ramekins in a bowl of warm water for a minute
  12. Take a ramekin and place a plate on top. Turn over so the ramekin is on top and shake lightly for the panna cotta to fall onto the plate
  13. Repeat for each ramekin, then remove the ramekins, add the apple slices and serve

    1. Sorry, I never saw your comment pop up! I didn’t put the green tea version up, but it is very similar. Instead of the cinnamon, add 3 green tea bags to the milk when heating and remove just before adding the gelatine. Hope this helps!

  1. Love Panna Cotta but never tried a cinnamon version – may just give this a go! It’s got me thinking of other Christmassy versions of it too – how about a mulled wine version?!
