How to make the best Tablet!

One of my favourite things to bake is Scottish Tablet.... it is so tasty and perfect for a sweet snack throughout the day. I thought I would share my favourite recipe with you, so now YOU can make amazing tablet from home!


What you will need:

397g Condensed Milk
50g Butter
900g Granulated Sugar
250ml semi skimmed milk

  1. Start by melting the butter in with the milk. Make sure you use a large pan, as the mixture will boil up quite a bit
  2. One the butter has melted, add the sugar slowly, ensuring you keep mixing the ingredients to avoid burning or clumping. 
  3. Once all the sugar has been added, leave to boil for about 5 mins, again ensuring you stir regularly.
  4. After the mixture has been left to boil, slowly add the condensed milk, again mixing the ingredients as you go to ensure you do not burn the mixture.
  5. Once this has been added, bring to the boil. You will want to let this boil for about 25 mins. The mixture should start to turn darker and caramel in colour. 
You will want to get the mixture to the 'soft ball stage' which is when the mixture is at 116 degrees Celsius. This is much easier to get when using a cooking thermometer, something I would definitely recommend.

 

Only once it is at this stage is it ready to take off the heat!

When you take the table mixture off the heat, you should continuously mix the ingredients until the mixture starts to set. This can take a while so beware sore arms... you might want to take turns with someone else to help you out a bit. 

It should start getting very difficult to stir and very still. Once it gets to this stage to you want to pour it into a well greased tray. It depends on what thickness you want your tablet and how many bits you want when it comes to what size of tin to use. 


When you have added the thick mixture to your tin, leave it to cool down and set. And that it you!
Try not to get tempted into tasting it whilst it is still warm... trust me, it ends in disaster. Once it has cooled down, cut into sections and east! Soooo yummy!

I actually find it tastes better the next day, when it has had overnight to completely cool down and harden.


Trust me, this is so scrumptious, it will not last long.... I am already having to make more due to high demand! :)

Let me know if you try to make this recipe, would love to see how you get on!

Remember to follow, share and check out m links at the top of my blog! Would really appreciate it.


Until next time, see you soon!
