Recipe for family meals :


It is many years since Hub-UK was first launched. It has been created from recipes contributed form all over the world, from professionals and amateurs alike. A great many of the recipes do not have any details as to who sent them in or from where they came. It would be a shame not to share them with you for this reason alone.

This recipe is one such recipe. If you know where it originated, or perhaps it is even yours, let me know and I will add the necessary credits and acknowledgements.

"The most indispensable ingredient of all good home cooking - love, for those you are cooking for" ~ Sophia Loren.


1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1 cup water
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Put sugar, syrup and water into a saucepan and set over direct heat.
  • Stir until the sugar is dissolved, then cook without stirring to the stiff ball stage (120C).
  • Add butter and cook to the medium-crack stage (138C) for soft butterscotch or to the hard-crack stage (149C) for brittle candy.
  • Remove from heat and add the flavouring and pour on to a greased slab.
  • Mark with knife while still warm and when cold break into pieces.
