i’ve really been into eating multiple breakfasts these days.
with a full dose of remorse come breakfast numero three.
i don’t fully understand WHY i do that to myself. i think it’s actually because my bellyache doesn’t come around until three hours later – post consumptions. which is total poo, my brain & stomach have some serious miscommunication issues and need therapy STAT.
(also tbt to The Mask).
any who. breakfasts’s’s.
some doctor on the internet told me that i should actually SKIP breakfast all together if this keeps happening.
he’s obviously a robot. and then he goes on about how skipping breakfast is great for anti-aging.
unless growing gray hairs as i stress about not eating is considered reverse aging then think again mr MD, think again.
Any who, a perfectly textured blend of pudding meets panna cotta with notes of creme fraiche & white chocolate and then covered with a layer of brandied blackberry sauce is 100 percent on my breakfast line up, and I don’t give a hoot. World, meet, puddin’-cotta.
Looking for a more traditional panna cotta? Then you probably need to look somewhere else……
I am a textured driven person when it comes to developing recipes and traditional panna cotta is a borderline ‘red zone’ texture (not totally in the red though, because i could probably force myself to eat it and be slightly happy, unlike a cooked mushroom, 100 percent red zone material where spitting in my napkin is 100 percent going d-o-w-n). Which is why I ended up lowering the gelatin content and adding a couple of other creamy ingredients, which allowed me to create more of a pudding like texture without going full blown ‘panna cotta’.
As for the blackberry sauce…. super simple, just make sure you cook off the alcohol instead of taking the sauce off the burner immediately after you add the brandy. You’ll be drunk after one bite (totally kidding, you light weight). Alcohol needs a little time to cook off so you’re just left with the brandy flavor notes vs feeling like a drunk (but this is a judge zone free blog, SO i totally understand if you swig a shot or two while cooking, whatever makes us better parents, or people).
Also! I had made this dish for a dinner I did a couple weeks back with Eckerts Farm! Take a look at that post in case you missed it. ALSO. the coolest part about purchasing local from Eckerts is that they have a “pick your own” blackberry garden, which is incredibly beautiful and super tasty 🙂
