Helen makes exceptional Fudge and inspired me to make a version at home. This is a quick version that uses Condensed Milk so it’s suitable for home bakers but Helen’s Fudge is undoubtedly smoother.
150g Demarara Sugar
150 ml Milk
395g tin of Condensed Milk
1tsp Vanilla Extract
Mix the Sugar, Butter and Milks together in a pan, bring to the boil and simmer for 10-15 minutes stirring all the time and scraping the bottom. (Sugar can stick and burn leaing an unpleasant taste).
Remove from the heat and beat with a spoon for about 10 minutes until it begins to thicken then add the Vanilla and continue to beat for a couple of minutes.
Pour into a greased and lined 9" baking tray and leave to cool, NB cool at room temperature so the sugar does not crystallise
Turn onto a board and cut into squares,
