Recipe's preparation

    Scottish Tablet
  1. 1. Cook all ingredients 20 minutes/80°C/Speed 4 until the sugar is dissolved.



    2. Cook 60 minutes/Varoma Temperature/Speed 1/Measuring Cup OFF.


    3. Remove the TM lid and scrape any sugary crystals off the side of the bowl. Mix 10 seconds/Speed 3.


    4. Cook 15 minutes/Varoma Temperature/Speed 1 until the mixture tan/golden brown. When a small amount is taken out, it should set firm but not solid in a few minutes; the temperature of the mixture will be 113°C. (Cook 10 minutes or longer until golden – dependent on weather - rainy or humid day may take longer).


    5. Place the steaming basket on top of the TM lid and beat 3 minutes/Speed 5/Measuring Cup OFF. (So that steam can escape)


    6. Beat again 5 minutes/Speed 7/Measuring Cup OFF/internal steaming basket on top until the mix is a bit grainy. Immediately pour out into a 23 x 30 cm tray or a 25 cm square tin, either non stick or lined with baking paper. Leave to cool for 10 minutes, then cut into squares. Leave in the tray to cool fully before cutting again and separating the pieces.


Accessories you need



Tablet is a crumbly hard version of Scottish version of fudge and is delicious!  It is similar to russian caramels/russian fudge.

Make sure fudge is cut after 10 minutes - mixture will still be soft.  Once fudge is set it is hard and crumbly.

    Thank you so much.  This is just like what my mum  used to make but she used to stand at the stove for hours.  I've made it a few times now and it's always a hit. Currently have another batch going to give to my brother for his birthday.

    There's no beater attachment to have in place, it's just the blades.

    Submitted by Paula575 on 13. January 2016 - 11:43.

    I quite often make tablet by hand using a sugar thermometer, etc. and it can take probably about an hour of constant stirring. So I made this the other day and it was great. Whilst it was cooking I managed to get lots of little things done instead of having to stand at watch over it. I will admit though, I did stand there whilst the thermomix was beating the bowl full of boiling sugar at speed seven! 

    But all in all it was perfect. Didn't taste any different to the stuff I make by hand.
