Scottish Tablet

Posted on

My Mum used to make this every Christmas time and it’s delicious, it’s a bit tricky to make as it takes a lot of stirring but it’s so nice, it tastes like crunchy fudge.  Here’e the recipe I use, there are lots of variations of it but this one always seems to work out okay.

Ingredients:

450g caster sugar

50g brown sugar (any type)

2 tablespoons golden syrup

120ml condensed milk

30g butter

90ml water

1.5 tsp vanilla extract

Method:

Place all ingredients into a large saucepan and bring to the boil over a medium heat – stir all the time to prevent sticking to the pan.

Bring temperature down a notch, don’t simmer but boil at a low temperature – remember to keep stirring in a circular motion.

Will begin to thicken and get darker (with streaks) after about 20 minutes or stirring, it will also double in thickness. When this happens, remove from the heat and stir quickly for approx 5 minutes or until it begins to set on the side of the pan (though not so that it gets very tough).

Pour into a lightly greased tin and score after 10 minutes so that it is easy to break, will take a couple of hours to set and will keep for a couple of weeks.
