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.
