Oatmeal Stout Panna Cotta

Stolen from The Naked Pint, and delicious sounding.  If you can’t find an oatmeal stout, a chocolate or milk stout would work equally well. You’re going for roasty coffee\coco notes. I’d avoid Irish stouts as they tend to be a bit thin and may even be a little sour. If you can’t find creme fraiche, use sour cream. A metal mixing bowl placed over a pan of boiling water works for a double boiler.

1 1/2 tsp gelatin

2 Tbs cold water

1 1/4 cups Samuel Smith’s Oatmeal Stout

3/4 C whole milk

3/4 C plus 1 C whipping cream

1 vanilla been, cut length wise and with the pulp scraped out or 1-2 Tsp vanilla extract.

2/3 C sugar

2/3 C plus 2 Tablespoons creme fraiche

In a double boiler  mix gelatin and water and set aside.

Over medium heat bring stout to a boil and reduce beer to a 3/4 C.

In a nother pot, combine milk 3/4 C cream, vanilla and sugar, bring to a boil.

Place water and gelatin over boiling water in lower half of double boiler, and stir the gelatin until dissolved. Whisk into cream mixture.

Whisk in stout, and then 2/3 C creme fraiche.

Strain and put in serving bowls, chill for 6 hours.

Whip remaining cream and creme fraiche into soft peaks.

Top panna cotta with whipped cream.

Enjoy.
