Recipe by kiwidutch
Another totally different recipe for a very old fashioned Dutch fudge called Borstplaat, and is posted to aid a request looking for a long lost family recipe... This one is so very different from my first one that I have posted it as well. I have no idea which of the two is more traditional, maybe these are regional differences? personally I don't know how half set fudge can be set on it's side but I have given the directions exactly translated as given and will amend this when I have had a chance to make this myself. ZWT REGION: The Netherlands.
- 6 tablespoons whipped cream
- 2 tablespoons milk, about
- 2 tablespoons vanilla sugar (by honig or oetker)
- 280 g caster sugar
- 1 tablespoon butter
Directions See How It's Made
- Grease a pan with small molds (like star or heart molds) and set aside.
- Add all ingredients to a saucepan and mix well with a spoon.
- Stirring constantly on a low heat, stir until the mixture starts to thicken.
- When it starts to get thick, turn off the heat, add the butter and stir quickly so that it mixes well and thickens.
- Pour into the prepared moulds, and if it starts to discolour while hardening turn them on their sides.
- When it has set it is ready to eat and enjoy.
- Sometimes this sets very hard and sometimes is semi-soft toffee-like in appearance, the best result is when you can get something a little in between these two extremes.
