The quickest home made gift?


I am all for home made/make from scratch/ whatever you choose to call it but at this time of year we are all time poor. What's not to like about a super quick home made gift which is sure to please. If I am entirely honest I'm not a huge fan of the original,product but I know I am in the minority so go ahead and give this a go.

Those wonderful 'thermomixers' over at Bake Play Smile were the inspiration though it's fair to say Google is awash with alternatives. Personally I don't think you can call it a Baileys if it isn't made with Irish Whiskey so do as I did and use one like Jameson's

This recipe make 2x 550ml bottles- perfect gift size and the recipient gets to keep a rather handy reusable bottle.

I whisked mine up in the Thermomix ( 30 seconds sp4) but it does only need a really good shake so feel free to shake it any way you choose!

homemade Irish creme



  • 380g Irish whiskey
  • 235g double (heavy) cream
  • 1 can 400g condensed milk ( I used the caramel variation in one batch and it was spot on!)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp coffee extract
  • 15 g chocolate syrup ( I used a caramel syrup for one batch- sadly I can't remember where I bought it and since the labelling is French it must have been in France – you see I have amazing powers of deduction)

Mix all the ingredients until just combined.

It's that simple!!


Try to bottle and package before drinking!

Merry Christmas 🙂

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne

    • Thank you! And I hope you like it. If it stays in your fridge for more than a couple of days I’d be surprised!!
      It should keep well for about 3 weeks though:) (given the alcohol involved )
