Buttermilk dessert

These "light as a feather" buttermilk puddings by Valli Little are the perfect alternative to Panna Cotta overload.


1 vanilla bean split and seeds scraped
1/2 cup (75g) caster sugar
600ml thickened cream
4 gold strength gelatine leaves
2 cups (500ml) buttermilk

Berry Coulis to decorate


Combine vanilla pod and seeds, sugar and 400ml thickened cream in a saucepan warm over medium heat stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved.

Soak gelatine in cold water for about 5 minutes or until soft.  Then squeeze excess water and add to hot cream stir until gelatine is completely dissolved.

Fill a bowl with ice cubes, place a clean bowl on top and strain cream mixture into the bowl. So as to have the mixture chill slightly.

Beat remaining cream to soft peaks and fold into the cream mixture and add buttermilk.

Pour into small dishes and refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours until set.

Either unmould the puddings or serve in containers.

Decorate with fruit.
