Deprived of fudge! That's pretty bad. Here's
another recipe, involving liquid soya milk, which
I suspect may be easier to come by in the UK. Sya
marge is probably to be found in supermarkets but
Holland and Barratt will definitely have it:


850g/1 3/4 lb sugar

300mls/ 1/2 pint soya milk

120g/ 4oz soya margarine (this is better for a
more 'buttery' flavour)

2 tsp vanilla extract

Oil a square tin ( about 18cm/7 inch). Pour the
soya milk into a pan and slowly bring to the
boil. Add the sugar and the soya margarine and
heat slowly, stirring constantly until the sugar
is dissolved and the margarine has melted. Bring
to the boil and cover the pan. Boil for 2
minutes, then uncover and continue to boil
stirring occasionally until it reaches soft ball
stage (it is sort of essential that you use a
sugar thermometer for this...it should read
115-116C/238 to 240F). Take off the heat and stir
in the vanilla extract and leave to cool for 5
minutes. Beat until it begins to lose its gloss
and is thick. Pour into the tin and allow to cool
before cutting into squares.
