Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin (a 1 1/4-oz. envelope)
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise, or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 strips orange peel (orange part only; each about 1/2 in. wide and 2 to 3 in. long)
  • 1 2/3 cups plain yogurt (see notes)
  • About 1/2 teaspoon salad oil

Preparation

  1. 1. In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over 1/4 cup cream. Let stand, without stirring, until gelatin is soft, about 10 minutes.
  2. 2. Meanwhile, pour remaining 1 3/4 cups cream into a 1- to 2-quart pan over medium heat. Scrape seeds from vanilla bean into cream, then add the bean (if using vanilla extract, add after yogurt, below), sugar, and orange peel; stir until sugar is dissolved and mixture is simmering. Remove from heat. Add gelatin mixture and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved. Pour into a large bowl. Remove vanilla bean and orange peel and let cool 10 minutes. Add yogurt (and vanilla extract, if using) and stir until well blended.
  3. 3. Lightly brush a 4-cup tube mold (or eight 1/2-cup molds) with oil; pour cream mixture into mold. Cover and chill until set, 8 hours or up to 2 days.
  4. 4. Just before serving, unmold: Gently run a knife between panna cotta and sides of mold to loosen. Invert a plate over mold and, holding plate and mold together, turn over; lift off mold. If panna cotta doesn't slip out easily, immerse mold to just below rim in warm water for about 2 seconds; lift out, dry bottom of mold, and repeat to invert onto plate.
