    kiwidutch's Note:

    This is a recipe for a very old fashioned Dutch fudge called Borstplaat, and is posted to aid a request looking for a long lost family recipe... it comes from a small community dutch cookbook made by ladies who went to New Zealand between 1940 and 1970 and pooled information about all their favourite dutch recipes, substitutions etc becuase they couldn't get specialised ingredients from "home". No measurement was given for the butter so I have started with 2 Tablespoons and will increase/decrease it once I have made this myself, ditto the 1 Tablespoon of flavouring essence... if you make it before I do, I would appreciate any info on more precise quantities. The recipe also only states 'essence" and not what flavour, I added "almond" becuase otherwise the Zaar computer turns it into Spice essence LOL, Serving size is a total guesstimate so that the recipe could be uploaded. Again, once made, I will amend the recipe. ZWT REGION: The Netherlands.

      My mother used to make this when I was a child. It must have been over 40 years since I have had it. I added a tablespoon of cocoa powder to it for a slightly chocolate flavor, which is how I remember it. Since I grew up eating this, to me it was wonderful. However, my 34 year old son, who has never had it, wrinkled up his nose at the sweetness. To me, it was ambrosia.
