About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my baileys panna cotta for you to enjoy.

Like most great concoctions, this dessert was created by chance when my wife bought a bottle of Baileys liqueur for one of our dinner guests. I thought I’d try it in the panna cotta I was making… All I can say is ‘wow’!

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.

Tiramisu con ciliegeCherry Tiramisu

If I asked you to name one Italian dessert , I guarantee the vast majority would say tiramisu. However, not everybody likes the coffee that the biscuits are traditionally soaked in, so my version – inspired by a trip to the cherry orchards of Castello, where Ciro and his family grow wonderful fruit – uses liqueur instead. If making this for children, just leave out the booze and cook the cherries...

Torta Speziata Con Uva E Scorza D'AranciaSpiced Grape Cake With Orange Zest

Grape cake is a rustic Italian bake, which is traditionally made during the grape harvest when the fruits are in abundance. It can be eaten at any time of day – even as a dessert with a glass of Vin Santo. The combination of butter and oil makes this a really light cake and very, very moreish.

Pesche al forno ripiene di amaretti, noci e uva passaBaked Peaches Stuffed With Amaretti Biscuits, Walnuts & Raisins

The area around Mount Etna yields peaches that taste as though they must have come from the Garden of Eden. Their flavour intensifies with cooking, and in this dish the amaretti biscuits and walnuts give a crumbly, crunchy texture, the raisins add sweetness and the buttery juices flavoured with amaretto, wine and cinnamon are simply irresistible. Serve hot with vanilla ice cream.

Pollo Al Limone, Miele E RosmarinoLemon Chicken With Honey & Rosemary

Rosemary and lemon give this simple chicken dish a real taste of the Mediterranean; it is zingy and flavoursome but really child-friendly, so it makes a great midweek family meal. Perfect in summer with a big salad, or try it in winter for a serious vitamin C kick to beat the bugs.
