Vegemite fudge 2.0
I was inspired by the caramel fudge I made for our Christmas in July lunch, which was so sweet I thought it could do with some salt. Then I thought I could add Vegemite. Then I didn't have white chocolate so I added dark choc chips instead. I was very pleased with the outcome.
I am confused. It tastes like breakfast but it tastes like dessert.
What is Vegemite?
It is a nice balance of sweet and salty
Vegemite? No wonder it tasted so strong.
It doesn't taste of Vegemite.

Vegemite fudge - with caramel layer
Adapted from Bundaberg Sugar via Green Gourmet Giraffe
Makes 60 small pieces
1 1/2 cups brown sugar, not packed
2 tbsp golden syrup
1 tbsp vegemite
395g can condensed milk
200g dark choc chips
Line a small slice tin (28cm x 18cm x 3cm) with baking paper.
Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add brown sugar, golden syrup, vegemite and condensed milk. Bring to the boil over a medium heat. Reduce to a low heat and cook for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and add chocolate, stirring until smooth. Pour into prepared tin immediately and spread evenly with the back of a spoon.
Cool to room temperature for at least 30 minutes. Once set, cut into small pieces with a clean hot knife (I had to clean my knife under hot water a few times while cutting up the fudge).
NOTES: you could try marmite or promite instead of vegemite, though it would alter the flavour slightly. I wonder if you could try miso too.

My 100% American response: But what would you do with the rest of the jar of Vegemite?ReplyDelete
best... mae at maefood.blogspot.com
Good question Mae - I would say you could use it to flavour stews like a dark stock - and it lasts forever - I am sure they dig up this sort of stuff in archeological digs :-)Delete
Yeah!!! I’d try this - I like a sweet and salty combo.ReplyDelete
Thanks Cakelaw - and I would love to have a willing soul like you eat my fudge - thought of taking vegemite fudge to a cakestall today but wasn't sure it would be appreciated so made caramel fudgeDelete
I would totally make this except I have trouble getting fudge to set.ReplyDelete
Thanks Lorraine - this one set fine - I tried another one last night with liquid glucose so that might help your fudges set - both the vegemite and the caramel last night have set at room temp (apparently the fridge dried it out according to a quick online search)Delete
I am so going to try this, but with Marmite! Sorry, I haven't quite taken to Vegemite, i have tried on more than one occasion.ReplyDelete
