Hydrate the gelatine.

Bring the cream and vanilla to the boil. Remove from the heat and dissolve the hydrated gelatine into this.

Stir in the Barker’s Professional Dulce De Leche Milk Caramel and allow the mixture to cool down slightly before folding in the semi-whipped cream.

Pipe the mixture into silicon moulds and top with the chocolate sponge discs. Allow the panna cotta to freeze firm before removing from the moulds.

110g caster sugar
65g soft flour

Warm the eggs and sugar to 23°C and whisk together until a stable sabayon is achieved.

Fold in the sieved flour and cocoa.

Spread onto a prepared slice tray (30cm x 21cm) and bake at 200°C for 6-8 minutes.

Cut 12 x 50mm discs of sponge.

Pipe some Barker’s Professional Dulce De Leche Milk Caramel on top of each disk and then invert these onto the piped panna cotta.

Dark Rum Punching Syrup

100g sugar syrup
60g dark rum

Mix together the rum and the syrup. Then punch the discs of chocolate sponge with this once they have been placed into the top of the piped panna cotta in the moulds.

150g plain flour
50g icing sugar
2g ground cinnamon
1g ground ginger
100g salted butter
1g egg yolk

325g cream
325g water
28g cornflour
3g flaked sea salt
14g powdered gelatine
40g cold water
