About This Recipe

Feast your eyes on the finest baileys panna cotta! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

Place the granulated sugar in a large saucepan over a low heat, slowly stirring with a wooden spoon until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil and bubble for 2–3 minutes until the mixture turns a pale caramel colour. Pour it into 6 ramekins, tilting them so that the caramel coats the bottom and halfway up the sides. Set aside to cool.

Preheat the oven to 160ºC/gas mark 3.

Pour the milk into a saucepan, add the vanilla extract and heat until almost boiling. Set aside to cool slightly.

Beat the eggs, egg yolks and caster sugar together in a large bowl. Pour into the milk along with the Baileys and whisk together.

Divide the milk mixture between the ramekins and place them in a roasting tin. Pour in enough cold water to come halfway up the side of the dishes, then place in the oven for 25 minutes until set, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Remove the ramekins from the roasting tin and set aside to cool.

When ready to serve, run a sharp knife around the edge of each panna cotta, place a small plate over the top and flip over.

Serve the panna cotta with the caramel poured around it.

Once you’re done, simply sit back and enjoy your baileys panna cotta and don’t forget to check out other great authentic Italian recipes including great antipasti recipes, Italian pasta recipes, Italian soup recipes, Italian beef dishes and authentic pizza recipes.

When I was filming for the TV series I visited Marco De Bartoli’s vineyard in Samperi, near Marsala – an ancient town on the western edge of Sicily. I spent a wonderful day with his son, Renato De Bartoli, who told me about the history of Marsala wine – its production dates back to 1770, when an Englishman accidentally discovered the local fortified wine and shipped it to England, where it...

My Mother’s LasagneLasagne di Mamma

This recipe has been handed down in the D’Acampo family for many generations, though I call it ‘Lasagne di Mamma’ because my mother taught it to my sister and me when we were about  11 years old . It's a great tradition that my wife will pass on to our own children. Allowing the dish to rest for a good 10 minutes before serving allows the layers to firm up slightly and become easier to cut neatly.

I have to admit that my mother is not the best cook in the world unless cooking traditional Neapolitan dishes she has grown up with. However, this has to be one of her best creations that she prepares for me every time I go to visit her. It is very important for this recipe to use tinned cherry tomatoes because if you use the fresh ones, the sauce will be too watery. Do not overcook the prawns or langoustines...

One of the great things about these little stuffed courgette rolls is that they don't require any cooking and can be prepared ahead. All that's needed is a bottle of chilled Italian wine, some warm, crusty bread on the side and good friends to share them with. You can use hazelnuts instead of walnuts if you prefer.

Spaghetti with Eggs, Pancetta and Pecorino RomanoSpaghetti alla Carbonara

Carbonara is the Italian word for 'charcoal burner', so some people believe this dish was first made for charcoal workers in the Apennine mountains. The general view now, though, is that it was an urban dish invented in Rome. Note that cream is not used in an authentic carbonara, so none is included below. Fettuccine or bucatini can be substituted for the more usual spaghetti.
