Idiot’s Burfee…..

It’s not that you are an idiot..but Mani Govindsami just asked for a bloke’s version that even an idiot could do!

Here is a simple recipe for Burfee…

Almond Burfee

Ingredients:

Whole almonds
Red food colouring, to tint almonds
Gold dust, to tint almonds

500g Spar milk powder
175ml tinned dessert cream
375ml Spar castor sugar
250ml cold water
2,5ml ground cardamom
25ml butter
100ml finely ground almonds

Tint the almonds with red food colouring and roast in a hot oven until dry.
Leave aside to cool and then sprinkle the gold dust over.
Gently rub the gold dust over the almonds.
Grease a 20 x 25cm pyrex dish or baking tray with butter.
Line the tray with plastic wrap ensuring the sides are also lined.
Grease the plastic wrap with butter.
In a mixing bowl, rub the dessert cream into the milk powder until it resembles bread crumbs.
Leave this aside for an hour to dry out.
Place the milk powder mixture into a Kenwood food processor and pulse for 30 seconds or until the crumbs are fine.
Combine the sugar and water in an 24cm AMC pot and boil until a thick sticky syrup forms.
Add the cardamom and butter to the syrup.
Mix the ground almonds into the milk powder and pour the syrup in.
Stir well to combine and working quickly press the mixture down into the prepared dish or baking tray.
Once the mixture cools, garnish with the tinted almonds.
Refrigerate the burfee until firm and slice into blocks or diamonds.
