FUDGE
« on: November 28, 2007, 05:45:33 PM »

This is probably a first, but I have a question about Fudge for all you kitchen lovers.

Years ago when I lived in Belfast, some friends and myself used to make terrific fudge.

Unfortunately I lost the recipe  (also years ago)  and I would love to find it again.

I know the ingredients consisted of butter, sugar and some kind of tinned milk.  Oh and a wee bit of vanilla dropped in at the end.

If anyone has that recipe I would dearly love it Please.

Val.

Try this

    * oil, for greasing
    * 300ml Milk
    * 350g caster sugar
    * 100g unsalted butter
    * 1 tsp vanilla extract

Method

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 (115C 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.

Thanks so much for taking the time to look this up for me.  I am sure you are on the right track.  Your a dear.!

Hi again Val. Actually it was just someone that knew I worked in the BT. Don't think he knew you. But it did bring to mind the great times we had.

Nope! Just e-mailed my dad in Newtownards for his  recipe... (ok I'm not strictly a Belfast ex-pat). But it is the most delicious fudge... and it came from his parents in Belfast. I'll post the recipe when I get it.
