I tried Nigella's recipe - too sticky
I tried another recipe I had - tasted like bicarb
I tried yet another - too grainy
I modified the 2nd and 3rd recipes, and perfection!
The ingredients are easy peasy!
4 tb golden syrup
1 cup caster sugar
2 tsp bicarb soda
Now the method:
BEFORE YOU EVEN START!
Fill you sink with hot soapy water
Fill a small bowl with about an inch of cold water and place by the stove with a METAL spoon
Pre-measure your bicarb and have have a METAL whisk on standby
Line small tin or baking dish with greaseproof paper.
Place golden syrup and sugar in saucepan. Don't walk away. Stir constantly until all sugar is dissolved, bubbles and the mixture changes colour to a honey-ish colour - about 4 minutes or so. You can test if it is ready by dropping a little bit in the bowl of water. if it goes to toffee, it's ready.
Don't touch the mix for about 10 minutes, leave to sit out on the bench, unless it's very humid and then transfer to the fridge after 2-3 minutes.
When rock solid, peel the baking paper off and either cut or break apart as you please! Drizzle or dip with/in chocolate or crumble over icecream.. or just eat on it's own!
Now, all bow in gratitude! Just kidding, have fun and enjoy! xx
