Looking for a simple keto dessert? Panna Cotta is an Italian classic that literally means “cooked cream”. t has a delicious creamy texture between a pudding and a mouse and is so simple to make.
- 2 1/2 tsp. unflavored Gelatin
- 2/3 cup Erythritol + 2 tbsp.
- 2 1/2cups 35% Whipping Cream
- 2 3/4 cup Buttermilk
- 1/3 cup dried Apricots
Place 1/4 cup cold water in a small bowl. Sprinkle gelatin over; let stand 10 minutes.
Heat 1/2 cup cream in a medium saucepan over medium heat until very warm (it will deactivate the gelatin if it gets too hot). Remove from heat, add gelatin and 2/3 cup sugar, and whisk until they are completely dissolved. Gradually stir in remaining 2 1/4 cups cream, then buttermilk. Divide among eight small bowls or 6-ounce ramekins and chill until set, at least 4 hours.
Meanwhile, bring apricots, 2 tablespoons sugar, and 1 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened and jam-like, 20–25 minutes. Let compote cool completely.
Bring remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and 2 tablespoons water to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat and cook, swirling often, until thick and syrupy (do not let it take on any color), about 4 minutes. Add fennel seeds and reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring constantly, until sugar starts to become dry and crystallized, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir until sugar is completely dry and crystallized, about 1 minute longer. Transfer seeds to a small bowl; set aside.
Serve panna cotta topped with compote and candied fennel seeds.
DO AHEAD: Panna cotta can be made 3 days ahead; cover and keep chilled. Compote can be made 1 week ahead; cover and chill.
