“Mama, if I do all my homework without moaning, can we make Honeycomb for a treat ?” my little 9 year old Noo asked.
Homework done without moaning I thought..we can make anything ;). The end of week homework task is enough to lead me to jump off the mountain, so from now on if bribery works, that’s the name of the game.
Sure enough 2 hours later, yes it does take that long, school bags were packed away and aprons and mini chef hat was donned.
Molecular gastronomy La Rosilla style commenced and a few minutes later, a molten mass of moorish loveliness was poured, the hardest part waiting for it to cool, before you can get stuck in.
3 ingredients that is all, 3 store-cupboard ingredients, just waiting to be turned into tooth achingly sweetness – golden syrup, sugar & bicarb.
So if you have a sweet tooth, this is for you..
*prepare first an oiled baking tray.
4 tbsp – granulated sugar
melted with 4 tbsp of golden syrup, in a non stick pan.
Bring to the boil, and boil for approx 2 mins, until starting to go deep golden colour.
Add 1 1/2 tsp of Bicarb, and quickly stir with a wooden spoon,
this is when it creates a molten mass, quickly pour onto a greased backing tray.
Allow to cool, then break into shards or chunks.
OMG; that sounds wonderful. Its something i use to love as a child. I wonder if i do the housework without moaning i will be able to treat myself to some. :-))
You make it all sound so easy – the last time I attempted it I needed power tools to get it out of the tray – Maybe I’ll give it another go!
I have had power tool moments too 😉
