  • 275g unrefined caster sugar
  • 100g golden syrup
  • 1 x 227g tub Rodda’s Cornish Clotted Cream
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence


Grease and baseline a 20cm tin.

Place all the ingredients in a large saucepan and heat gently, stirring until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil, cover and boil for 3 minutes.

Uncover and continue to boil until the temperature reaches 116 °C / 240 °F. If you do not have a thermometer, you can see if the fudge is ready by dropping a little into a cup of cold water. If a soft ball is formed, it is ready.

Remove from the heat and beat until the mixture becomes thick, a little grainy and more matt, this could take up to 10 minutes.

Pour into the tin and leave for 30 minutes. Mark into squares with a knife and leave until set. Cut into pieces and store in an airtight container.

Oh my goodness, I think this is the nicest fudge I have ever tasted and I only made it to use up some clotted cream that I had in the fridge. I don't think this is the last time that I shall be making it though, after sharing it with various friends and neighbours I think I will be asked to make it again!! And... It's so easy.

Delicious. I made this for my fudge loving husband. He said it's the best fudge he has ever eaten. Top marks.

I made this once, it was absolutely devine. Unfortunately, Roddas Clotted Cream is like gold dust in the area I live, very rarely available.
