I’ve been asked to share this easy fudge recipe I always use, so here goes:
It is easy because you do not need a thermometer and it is almost impossible to flop! I’ve tried different types of fudge recipes, some microwave ones too, but this one is really the best. It tastes like the ones I remember from my childhood days. I think our family recipe got lost along the way, but this one is close. It is one I found in an old magazine and tweaked it a little bit.
2 1/4 cups of castor sugar(normal sugar works, but then it has a grainy texture)
4 table spoons of butter/margarine
30 ml golden syrup
1 can of condensed milk, about 397g
5m caramel essence
Pinch of salt
- Heat together the water, sugar, butter and syrup in a large pot until melted.
- Add condensed milk and salt and bring to boil
- Allow mixture to boil gently for 30 minutes(or soft-ball stage), stirring continuously
- Remove from the stove and add essence
- Beat with an electric mixer for a few minutes
- Pour into a greased pan and let cool
- Cut into squares before cooled completely
So good! This is a basic fudge recipe, but feel free to experiment by adding chocolate bits or nuts.
