Indulgence is meant to be shared, and one of the sweetest ways to do so is by gifting homemade Scottish Tablet. This traditional Scottish treat, known for its creamy, melt-in-your-mouth texture and rich, buttery flavour, holds a special place in the hearts of those who have tasted it.
Whether you're celebrating a special occasion or simply want to spread some sweetness, homemade Scottish Tablet is the perfect gift. Try out our recipe here:-
- 175g unsalted butter
- 450g caster sugar
- 75g sweetened condensed milk
- Line a 22 x 18cm tray with baking parchment. Put the butter and 150ml water in a pan over a low heat, and melt the butter (don't let the water boil). Tip in the sugar and dissolve, stirring often.
- Bring the water to the boil, turn down to a simmer, then add the condensed milk. The mixture will be a light creamy colour.
- Cook for 20-30 mins, stirring often, until the mixture is thick and a deep caramel colour.
- To test, drop a little mixture onto a cold side plate, it should not run and should be thick and sticky after 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and beat for 10-15 mins until it has slightly thickened. Pour into the prepared tin and leave to cool for 30 mins before cutting into squares.
The tablet will look a lot like Fudge but it has a more grainy texture.
The joy of presenting someone with a batch of homemade Scottish Tablet is immeasurable. It's not just a gift; it's a piece of your heart, a taste of tradition, and a gesture of love. So, brighten someone's day, share some Scottish Tablet!
