Oh My Fudge!
April 8, 2010 in Sweet treats
Here’s the proof! I finally did it after how many years! Oh my Fudge! I am so proud. I must say, it’s really not as complicated as we are brainwashed to believe during our years of cookery training! Forget the thermometer, washing the sugar crystals off the sides and yes, you still get the perfect fudge! Oh so delicious! I’m on a serious sugar buzz! So this is what I did…
Makes 24 squares
You will need:
1/2 cup water
1 can of full cream condensed milk
4 cups sugar
125 g butter
30 ml golden syrup
1 t vanilla essence
Add the water, condensed milk, sugar, butter and golden syrup. Heat gently allowing the sugar to dissolve. Then bring to a gentle boil for +- 30 minutes until it caramelizes and thickens as seen above. Remove form the heat and stir in the vanilla and vinegar.
Beat the fudge mixture with an electric beater(I find it much easier than doing it manually!) until the colour lightens and it has thickened .
Spread into a greased rectangular dish and cool until firm enough to cut into squares(about 20 minutes). Then allow to stand for 1 hour before removing from the dish.
Now look at that! Velvety smooth, sweet and buttery! Bliss!
Store in an airtight container if you don’t manage to finish them all off!
