How to make Layered Kaffir Lime Leaf Panna Cotta?
Panna Cotta, a molded chilled dessert popular throughout Italy, is easy to make and can be prepared in advance. It looks and tastes wonderful with ripe red fruits or anything. However, this is a East meets West Panna Cotta with a herb thats usually used in curries or soups and now... viola Steph has twisted the recipe a bit is giving you Kaffir Lime Leaf Panna Cotta with Palm Sugar.
Her very 1st Kaffir Lime Leaf Panna Cotta which was slightly lighter in plating & flavour because she only added 1 teaspoon of Kaffir Lime Leaf Powder and its gorgeous the 2nd try! YUMMMoooo!

2. Take 80ml of the coconut milk from the recipe, mix it with kaffir lime leaf powder.
3. Place the remaining milk, whipping cream and gula melaka into a saucepan. Heat over
medium heat until gula melaka is completely dissolved. Add the softened gelatine
powder, stirring occasionally to make sure the softened gelatine powder is completely dissolved. Stir in the kaffir lime leaf powder mixture and add vanilla extract.
4. Drain through a fine sieve (use a spoon to press the residing particles through the sieve
if there is any).
5. Pour into the moulds and let them sit for 30 minutes. Chill in the fridge for at least
6. To serve: Dip the mould into hot water for about 2 seconds. Turn it upside down and
remove it onto a plate.
• You don’t need to bring the mixture to a boil. Just ensure that the softened gelatine

• If you don’t want the layers, you can put the moulds into the fridge once it has cooled
down a bit.

ABOUT SPOOKESNBUBBLES :
Stephanie is an EA by day, baker by night and the occasional dog sitter. When she is not at work or at the gym, she can be found in the comfort of her own kitchen. She is either cooking or baking away, oldie but goodie recipes or trying out new recipes where she always has a tendency to stray from the recipe and prefers to go by feel.
Born and raised in KL, Stephanie is no stranger to being surrounded by delicious food that can be found on street corners or cooked at home by her grandma. Growing up, she was never really taught how to cook but she was always good at eating. When she migrated to Melbourne with her mum and sister, she learnt how to cook by observing her mum in the kitchen. When you are far from home, it’s a no brainer that you have to learn to make dishes that remind you of your Malaysian childhood or else, travelling to and from KL is going to burn serious holes in your pocket.
Cooking came naturally to her, but baking was a different story. Seven years ago, she said to a good friend, “I’m really bad at baking” and fast forward to now, she’s in a completely different chapter. Stephanie is a self-taught baker, she started out by baking cupcakes and a good mentor of hers told her, “this taste better than the store-bought ones you usually buy for us”. That’s where her baking escapade started, she started baking cupcakes and she put a twist on the usual cupcake flavours with flavours that reminded her of home. Two of those flavours include Pandan Kaya Cupcakes and Durian Cupcakes.
She decided to start her own cupcake business, CUP that CAKE. She loves her day job and bakes for her business on the side as a hobby, trying to create any Asian flavours that comes to mind. Nothing makes her happier than seeing her nearest and dearest enjoy the food that she puts on the table for them. You can follow her adventures on Instagram: spooksnbubbles cupthatcakebysteph
