Had a productive afternoon.

I decided as part of my home baking session to try and make a batch of fudge. Its really not that difficult, took about 20 minutes, although it was a bit scary when it was boiling like mad and bubbling fiercely!! I think this tastes more like Scottish Tablet rather than traditional soft fudge. Its still very nice though!!

This is a recipe from GMTV.

Servings: Makes about 36 pieces
Level of difficulty: Easy
Preparation Time: 15 minutes, plus cooling
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
oil, for greasing
300ml Milk
350g caster sugar
100g unsalted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1. Grease an 18cm square cake tin. 2. Put the milk, sugar and butter in a heavy-based saucepan. Heat slowly, stirring all the time, until the sugar has dissolved and the butter melted. 3. Bring to the boil and boil for 15-20 minutes, stirring all the time. 4. When the mixture reaches the soft-ball stage (115°C on a sugar thermometer), remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Leave to cool for 5 minutes. 5. Beat the mixture with a spoon for a few minutes until it starts to thicken and the gloss disappears. 6. Pour into the prepared tin and leave to set at room temperature (do not put it in the fridge). 7. Once set, cut the fudge into small squares and store in a sealed container.
