Clotted Cream Fudge

Clotted cream fudge is so creamy that it melts in the mouth, and it’s easy to make with just 4 ingredients.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Course Sweet
Servings 8


  • 275 g caster sugar
  • 100 g golden syrup
  • 225 g clotted cream
  • 1 tsp teaspoon instant coffee (dissolved in boiling water)


  • Line an 20cm(8”) square tin with silicone baking paper.
  • Place the sugar, golden syrup and clotted cream in a large saucepan and heat gently till the sugar dissolves.
  • Bring the mixture to a rapid boil. If you have a sugar thermometer (I don’t), boil until the mixture reaches 116°C. After 5-10 minutes you should see the mixture start to subside. At this stage add in the coffee and test by dropping a small amount into a cup of cold water. If it forms a soft ball it is ready.
  • Remove from the heat and beat until the mixture becomes thick, grainy and matt. This will take 5-10 minutes and, in my experience, it’s worth setting your kitchen timer so you can keep a check on how long you have been beating for!
  • Pour into the tin and leave for 30 minutes before marking out squares with a sharp knife.
  • Leave until cool and set. Cut into pieces and store in an airtight tin, lined with more baking paper.


Tip: It’s worth pointing out that instead of using coffee you could add a couple of teaspoons of any flavour you desire!coffee
