Coffee is the elixir of life, well at least to the Italians.

Espresso, cappuccino, latte, ristretto, macchiato – there are so many different variations of the same beverage.

I certainly can’t live without at least one cup in the morning and love it equally in desserts. Chopinand doesn’t drink coffee or eat desserts and can’t understand my obsession with either. To pay tribute to the Italians and to satisfy my obsession, I’ve combined three things that the Italians do really well which I absolutely adore – coffee, nutella and pannacotta. The result is a tri-coloured breakfast and dessert, all in one bite – my ultimate panacea! Friends who know me understand I’m not a morning person.

To me, coffee can’t cure everything but it certainly cures my mornings!

And with this recipe, we hereby present you with the first of our ten Cuisines of the World journey, a 3-course Italian meal made from the Royal Selangor jelly mould.

Day 9: Dessert – Coffee, nutella and vanilla pannacotta

If you are a die-hard coffee fan, you might even try having a scoop of this pannacotta with a coffee bean.

It was a wet and rainy day in Sydney today and I sat out in the balcony to enjoy this delightful treat with an expresso.

This pannacotta is a tri-flavoured treat and each spoonful should be a cross-section of the three layers so that you would enjoy a burst of the three different flavours. Each layer is soft and creamy with that distinctive hint of coffee aroma, chocolate and vanilla. This treat is definitely one of the more wobblier ones we have done so far.

    my saucepan!
    You have created perfection in a dessert! Although I need something a little crispy and crunchy on the side- not quite biscotti- more like a rusk!
    Mmm! This is as beautiful as it is mouthwatering- and I hadn’t thought of how wonderful it must be for you to sit and savor these creations after you photograph them!
    I salute you!
    Very Well Done!

  2. Winston says:

    I would so love to be the one in the picture eating that dessert right now! This jelly craze is starting to get really contagious ;p

  3. Sissi says:

    Another dessert I am not fond of and another one you have made miracles with: I start dreaming about such an elegant, 3-coloured panna cotta.

  4. Fiona N says:

    All my favorites in one jelly mould …YUM!! Can’t wait to try it out myself. Looks absolutlely stunning for presentation too.

  5. Martina says:

  6. Carolyn Jung says:

    Oooh, Nutella — now we’re talkin’! I would have no problem finishing this. 😉

  7. Susie D. says:

    Cannoli is my favorite Italian dessert, but I cannot find it where I live. :(

  8. Gertrude says:

    This look so perfect and who can say no to Nutella. Love the way you layered it.

  9. Ann says:

    This is – without a doubt – my favorite of all of the mould recipes so far. Absolutely stunning! I love the flavors, the plating….everything!

  10. sophia says:

    I’m obsessed with coffee!!! I’m really enjoying these jelly series. Everything looks stunning, but this one takes the cake for me just because of the extra jolt of caffeine…and nutella! Woo hoo!

    Favorite Italian dessert? Hm. To be honest I don’t know much Italian desserts other than tiramisu. I’d take savory over sweet any day though!

    • Chopinand says:

      Hi sophia,

      I’m like you, I prefer savoury over sweet desserts as I don’t have much of a sweet tooth.

  11. terri says:

    haha high 5!

    you know tt peter pan too eh?!

  12. Cheah says:

    So sweet, tri-colour!

  13. I feel like every post it’s getting more powerful and I’m so excited to check this everyday. I think it’s probably a lot of pressure and a lot of work to think of menu and post it. Great job and I highly admire of you two!

  14. mycookinghut says:

    Looks absolutely beautiful! I would like to get a taste of this!

  15. Dolly says:

    i was reading the new ed. of donna hay and had a chocolate cookie craving today… ended up with subway cookies.

    but noow… nutella pannnacotta…ooooohhh so classy!!!!

    NOOO i dont have time to make this :(

  16. Julie says:

    Great idea on the pannacotta! I love of a few layers of it :)

  17. Joanne says:

    Beautiful presentation. The dessert sounds satisfying yet not super filling. Lovely.

  18. sugarpuffi says:

    wow my personal fave from your jellies so far! would love to try

  19. I loved this and the contrasting of colors! Simply divine!

  20. sara says:

    So pretty! I love the layers of color, gorgeous!

  21. Love the delicious flavours in this three-toned pannacotta!

  22. Whee, hi Mysaucepan! 😀 *wave*

    I’m like Chopinand, I don’t care for desserts and coffee (anymore, that is – ha, I used to love both a lot. But it’s better this way now).

    Anyway anyway, your little three-layer-three-flavor hat looks like magic! 😀

  23. Love it!!! I’ve only just started drinking coffee and need quite a bit of sugar to balance the bitterness so this sounds perfect! Ugh! Drooling!!!

  24. coffee, nutella and vanilla <3

  25. Sweet says:

    This is such as fabulous creation. It never occurs to me that nutella could be used to make pannacotta. Thanks for sharing this idea. I will try your recipe this weekend.

  26. Sharn says:

    OMG!! This has been a stand out one for me. Some of the best flavour combinations. Classics. And so cleanly presented. Love it!!!
