Yep! this was an old video, my 1st. This recipe i use at work and yields 48 cut back accordingly. You want 1.8kg caster sugar, 300ml water, 300ml milk and 250g butter along with 400ml condensed milk. Add the milk, water, butter and sugar on a slow heat blend and melt, bring up to the boil. Once the temperature reaches 114 centigrade whisk in the condensed milk, then bring to the boil again to reach 116 to 117 centigrade then take off the heat and leave to settle for 5 minutes. using a whisk mix vigorously for a few minutes until the mixture lightens and thickens now pour into prepared tin and allow to set. mark out after 40 minutes then allow to cool completely before portioning.

Process as in the video, but you can omit the stirring once you have a slow rolling boil, just make sure to have a sugar thermometer. I will update this video soon, thanks for the comment. *TIP: after whisking in the condensed milk on a slow rolling boil you want to see the mixture rising up a fair bit, if it stays low then its probably caught which means you need to transfer to another clean pot quickly.

Hoots Mon! its a new beginning...always...

Thanks for visiting my profile.

I hail from Aberdeen but now live in Edinburgh; I have lived and worked in a few cities and countries. My main working background has been in the catering industry where I served my time as a baker and worked the North Sea. I travelled in Europe and the US working on Cable ships and oil rigs.

I blog part time and work full time in the services industry. I love to bake and have a keen interest in technology. I am not a prolific poster and I probably + and comment more, if I find you interesting then I will follow... hey ho!

I am still waiting for the ideal social network platform to come along, perhaps Google might have it worked out soon.

In the meantime you can get to know me better by following me on any of my social services including Google, My Twitter handles are Bill_Masson and medwinbakery

Man this place has been around for quite a while now & by the sound of other reviews it’s not changed. When i was there too many years ago to mention it was relatively new and hip, the whole horror scene theme was pretty good at the time and the food was the usual fast burgers & chips. It’s the sort of place you would have a couple of drinks before moving onto the highlight of your night out… so to say.
