Raspberry Panna Cotta Cake : Low in Carbs


Yes, it's the weekend, they seem to come around so quickly! Why not consider treating yourself to a nice slice of this Raspberry Panna Cotta Cake, it's 7.3g carbs per serving. The recipe idea is from Ewelina and she says "Raspberry panna cotta with a cloud of coconut cream on top looks beautiful and very elegant. It’s very easy to make and tastes absolutely delicious.

Ingredients:
Serves 10
Base:
70g ground almond
70g desiccated coconut
1 tbsp. Splenda
50g coconut oil (it’s about ¼ cup or 60ml)

Raspberry Panna Cotta:
400 ml double cream
200 ml milk
300 g raspberries (fresh or frozen)
10g Splenda (or any other sweetener, equivalent of 100g sugar)
Lemon juice from 1 lemon
6 tsp. gelatine powder

Creamy top:
250 g coconut cream (chilled in the fridge overnight)
2 tbsp. Splenda
2 tbsp. desiccated coconut
200g fresh raspberries for decoration

Preparation:
Base:
1. Preheat oven to 180C.
2. Place all the ingredients for the base in a large bowl and mix well together.
3. Press evenly into 19cm deep cake tin with loose base.
4. Bake for about 10 minutes until golden brown and set aside to cool down.

Panna Cotta:
1. In a medium saucepan place raspberries, sugar/sweetener and lemon juice and bring to boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes until raspberries release the juice. Pour the raspberry juice and pulp into a sieve. Rub the juice and as much of the pulp through as you can, using the back of a wooden spoon. Set aside to cool down.
2. Dissolve gelatine in hot water and set aside to cool down.
3. In a large saucepan bring to boil cream and milk. Remove from heat and add cooked raspberries and dissolved gelatine. Mix well and let it cool down to room temperature. Place in the fridge and when it starts to thicken pour over the cake base. Refrigerate overnight.

Creamy top:
1. In mixing bowl place the chilled coconut cream. Beat (using electric mixer) until stiff (note: whipped coconut cream is not as stiff as whipped heavy/double cream). At the end add Splenda (about 2 tbsp. or more if you wish).
2. Sprinkle the cake with desiccated coconut and spoon the cream over the cake. Decorate with fresh raspberries. Store in the refrigerator."

Very yummy looking. I love panna cotta, but have never thought to make a cake with it. Great idea, Jan!
I'm always happy when low-sugar recipes include the equivalent of sugar as well the amount of Splenda or whatever, because I don't use sugar alternatives (other than honey, which is sugar). So thanks for this one!

Sami said...

Looks scrumptious!
Thanks Jan.
