Orange Flower Water Panna Cotta

I did promise I'd return to the orange blossom water after making the fruity muffins.  There's nothing more irritating than having an ingredient in the cupboard and thinking "I'll use that sometime..."  If anything, I think this works better as a use for the orange blossom (or flower) water as it partners it with honey which seems to work so well.

Obviously with honey in the recipe, it's a no-no for kids under 12 months old.  If you want an alternative, try my other pannacotta recipe I posted a while back.

Orange Flower Water Panna Cotta - makes 2 for 12 months plus only


90 ml full fat milk
2 tsp honey
1/2 tsp orange flower water or orange blossom water
1 leaf of gelatine
125g full fat greek yogurt


Soak the gelatine in cold water until it goes floppy.  While that's soaking mix the honey with the milk and orange flower water and microwave until boiling (approx 1 minute).

Check the milk is boiling then add the gelatine and whisk in.  Add in the yoghurt whisking in.  Pour into small plastic tubs and refrigerate for a few hours or until set.

Either allow your little one to spoon from the tub or turn out (warming in a bowl of hot water to loosen the sides.)

A much more adult flavour than my other panna cotta recipe but still worth trying with your child.  If they don't like it then you'll have something tasty to eat.  Orange flower water flavour does sing out in this recipe, if you have no idea what it tastes like, imagine eating the fragrance of orange zest in a florist shop!
