Left over fudge???
Never!!! Not in this house, or B&B……
But just in case you have, here’s a recipe idea for you!
We love the Fudge we make at Fields Lodge Boutique Bed & Breakfast, here in the heart of Pembrokeshire, and hope you do too!
Read on to find out what else you could do with it, rather than just have it with your favourite cuppa!
Goey Fudge Brownies
(Scroll down for recipe)
We love a brownie, and although I am a low carb, gluten free type of gal, I know there are plenty of people out there who just love a ‘normal’ brownie.
And what better way to make it taste even better but to add some of our Fields Lodge Fudge into the mix.
Don’t worry about the quantity of fudge, just put as much or as little as you like-there’s no right or wrong here!
Because this is a SUPER easy recipe do have a go, and it will work well without the fudge too.
You could also add in some nuts instead if you wanted a variation.
I need to be a proviso here for my American friends, this isn’t fudge as you know it, there’s no chocolate in Traditional British fudge, just so you know!
(There’s a story here about me going over to America to show a group of B&B owners how to make our fudge and they all nearly died when I said there’s no chocolate in it!) –That’ll be another bog post!!
Here’s the recipe then:
I’m using a cup as measurement, as sometimes it’s just too much of a faff to dig the scales out!
1 Cup of Melted Butter
2 Cups of Sugar (I use Xylitol, as I’m no sugar!)
1/2 Cup of Cocoa Powder
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 Cups of S R Flour (you can use GF SR Flour)
1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Salt (I like Halen Mon flavoured with Vanilla)
1/2 cup of left over fudge(or whatever amount you like!)
Heat Oven to 170 degrees
Line a baking tray with sides (approx 9inchx13 inch) with baking parchment (crinkle the parchment too get it to go where you want better)
Combine ALL the ingredients EXCEPT the fudge into a batter and pour into your LINED baking dish/tray/pan
Sprinkle on the fudge on the top, pressing into the butter just slightly
Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes, depending on your oven and choice of pan
You’re looking for a knife to come out with crumbs on it rather than a wet mixture, but it will continue to cook for a while once you take it out…so don’t leave it in too long, otherwise it will end up being too dry!
So, this is where your personal preference comes out-some people like a brownie to be goey in the middle, I prefer mine to be solid but not dry.
Leave to cool on a wire rack
Cut into squares and enjoy!
