Russian FudgeMay 9th, 2011 | Posted by in Recipes
I was wandering aimlessly around the house the other day when I decided to do some baking. This was fine, until I realised that actually, I couldn’t be bothered. So Rob decided he was going to make some Russian Fudge instead.
This recipe is very simple and easy to make, and tastes great!
3 1/2 cups White Sugar
125 g butter
3 tablespoons Golden Syrup
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
200 g sweetened condensed milk (half a standard tin)
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
1. Place all ingredients, except the vanilla, into a saucepan.
2. Warm over a low heat until all the sugar is disolved.
3. Bring to a gentle boil (you shouldn’t need to increase the heat) and cook for about 15-20 minutes until it reaches about 120°C, aka. the soft ball stage. If you’re like me and don’t have a sugar or candy thermometer, you can test the soft ball stage by getting a glass of cold water and adding a few small drops of the mixture to it. If it forms a soft ball as it drops through the water then you’re at the right stage.
5. Beat until the fudge is thick and has lost its gloss.
6. Pour into a baking tin and let cool (you can put it in the fridge if you like). Once cool you can cut into bite size pieces and go for it!
