What you need:

  • 200g (8oz) Caster sugar
  • 5 tablespoons Golden Syrup
  • 2 teaspoons Bicarbonate of Soda
  • Square baking tray (25cm x 25 cm; 10” x 10”)
  • Greaseproof paper

What you do:

  • Line the baking tray with greaseproof paper greased both sides
  • Pour the sugar and syrup into a deep saucepan
  • Stir and heat gently until the sugar dissolves
  • Turn the heat up until the mixture bubbles to an amber colour
  • Add the bicarbonate and stir quickly; it will foam and grow
  • Pour the mixture into the baking tray
  • Let it cool for two hours
  • Break it – with a rolling pin or a karate chop!
