Learn how to make our classic vanilla fudge with our simple recipe!


  • 2 rounded tbsp good instant coffee
  • 700g granulated sugar
  • 300ml evaporated milk (2 x 170g cans)
  • 100g butter
  • 2 tsp glucose syrup (we used Dr. Oetker Liquid Glucose)

You will also need


  • 19cm square tin, lined with Bakewell paper




  1. Dissolve the coffee in 5 tablespoons boiling water and put in a deep, heavy pan with the sugar, milk, butter and glucose.
  2. Stir the mixture over a low heat until the sugar is completely dissolved; brush any sugar crystals down from the side of the pan with a brush dipped in boiled water. Bring to the boil and boil for about 10 minutes until the mixture reaches 115°C on a sugar thermometer (or until a teaspoon of the mixture dropped into cold water forms a soft ball).
  3. Take the pan off the heat, and beat the fudge with a wooden spoon until thick and it’s cooled to 100°C (about 2-3 minutes). Pour into the tin and spread evenly. Leave to set, and then cut into squares.
