A little effort


  1. Step 1:

    Lightly oil a 20cm square cake tin. Place all the ingredients, except the vanilla, into a large heavy-based pan and heat slowly, stirring until the butter melts and sugar dissolves.

  2. Step 2:

    Bring to boil, stirring until the butter melts and the molasses sugar dissolves.

  3. Step 3:

    Bring the mixture to the boil then reduce heat to a rapid simmer and cook, stirring occasionally to prevent it catching on the base of the pan for 10-15 minutes or until the sugar thermometer shows that is has reached 117C.

  4. Step 4:

    Beat the mixture with a spoon for a few minutes until it starts to thicken and the gloss disappears. Add the vanilla extract.

  5. Step 5:

    Carefully pour into the prepared tin and leave to set at room temperature. Once set, chop into squares and store in a sealed container.
