my recipe uses 150 grms, brown sugar, dark, 150 grms butter and a tin of condensed milk, melt butter and sugar, add milk and bring to the boil gently stirring all the time untill it thickens, amazing stuff, artery clogging!!!
Wannabe, they are 3 of my favourite things to make, love them all, i've been banned from making them, have a fab recipe for the caramel, brown sugar, butter and tin of condensed milk, yum yum yum!!The viennese whirls recipe i use us the hairy bikers, however i made them way to big the first time and only got 8 out of them, ha ha just about got my choppers around it, sight for sore eyes!!
Ive never made puff before, but i might have a go. Saves not having it in when wanting to rustle up a pasty etc. Might try that 10min Gordon one, talking of Ramsey, my lord have i got a crush on him presently
Ah! That's a rough puff pastry. I've made that before (Dan's recipe again ) - it's quite straightforward. It won't just take 10 minutes though from start to finish because you need to rest the dough in between. But it's quite straightforward.
I had Michel Roux Sr.'s Pastry out of the library recently, and made puff pastry from that, which turned out well. It's ruined Just Rol for me , but can't imagine making it from scratch very often. I also made pain au raisin from the same book, they were yum.
I also like the time involved, although it's more being available for that length of time, rather than working continuously, iyswim?
