RECIPE TIPS

SARA SAYS...
If you like Baileys, you are going to love this! I usually make it with condensed milk but had a flash of inspiration when I saw a jar of dulce de leche, the soft spoonable toffee often used to make banoffee pie, in the supermarket. If you want to make a batch to give as gifts, stick a label on the bottles to make sure that the lucky recipient knows to store it in the fridge.
