Recipe: Vanilla Panna Cotta With Pashmak

Looking for a fabulous dessert idea? We loved making this superb panna cotta with pashmak using our Thermomix for a recent styling shoot. We know you will love it too!


  • 20 grams powdered gelatin or 8 gold strength gelatin leaves
  • 800 grams thickened cream
  • 300 grams milk
  • 200 grams of pashmak (Persian Fairy Floss)
  • 190 grams white sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean (quite dry is best) or 2 teaspoons vanilla paste


  1. If you’re using leaf gelatin, soak the gelatin as per the packet’s instructions. If you’re using powdered gelatin, stir it through 300g of milk and set aside.
  2. Place sugar and vanilla bean into the bowl and blitz for 10 seconds on speed 9. If you are using vanilla paste, add later when you add the gelatin.
  3. Add cream and cook for 10 minutes/100c/speed 2. You want the cream to be almost simmering.
  4. Add vanilla bean paste (if using), milk, and gelatin. Mix for 3 minutes/70c/speed 4.
  5. Transfer mixture into a pouring jug and rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Pour into 10 x 125ml dariole moulds or small glasses.
  7. This is best made the day before so the vanilla panna cotta can set.
  8. Refrigerate overnight.
  9. Right before you serve place small pieces of the pashmak on top of each panna cotta.
