Tried a new recipe from the book i bought & i had mentioned it in my last post " 100 Desserts". Last Saturday, my family & I attend my neighbour's daughter mini Birthday party : ) I made this Black Sesame Panna Cotta & Blueberry Cheese Tarts for the party.
The taste is nice, but the texture abit hard :( I cannot recall back how many I put for the gelatine powder. But I don't know was my mistaken or the recipe printed wrongly. Sigh..... Did anybody bought this book & tried making it before?
Or...... is't the texture should be like that for panna cotta? hahahaa..... who can tell me the answer?
From the actual picture, it is white with sesame seeds... But I kept stirring to prevent it from boiling... so it becomes grey.. hahaha :D

Here goes the recipe :

  • 2 cups whipping cream

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 3 tbsps sugar ( reduced )

  • 4 tsps gelatin powder

  • 4 tbsps ground black sesame

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a pot. Put on low heat. Bring to a dentle simmer. Cook until the gelatin dissolves.

  2. Leave the mixture to cool. Divide among small serving glasses. Refrigerate until set. Serve.

** Cook the ingredients over low heat. Keep an eye on it always because it tends to boil & overflow easily **


  1. Janice, how picture looks really nice! How did you edit it? Btw, I love black sesame too, will try this out when I get the chance....will reduce gelatine powder. This is your mum's black sesame powder right? Heehee...

  2. Hi Bee Bee :) I edit with my iPhone ( 1 of the App- LemeLeme). Ya, I think shld reduce gelatine powder :) Heehee... :D Wah... You are so smart, ya ya... The black sesame powder is from my mum.. Hahaha :)
