1 tsp bicarbonate soda
Half tsp apple cider vinegar

– Line baking tray with parchment paper and spray with oil to prevent sticking.
– Mix sugar and golden syrup and melt over low heat. When sugar is fully melted, turn up heat to allow mixture to turn a carmel colour (this will happen quite quickly). Be careful not to burn it.
– Turn off heat and add bicarbonate soda and apple cider vinegar and quickly mix well together. Make sure bicarbonate soda is fully absorbed.
– Mixture should be bubbling. Transfer immediately to baking tray.
– It should expand in size on baking tray, leave 60/90 minutes to harden.
A question regularly asked is what is golden syrup? The following information is taken directly from Wikipedia.
Golden syrup or light treacle is a thick amber-coloured form of inverted sugar syrup made in the process of refining sugar cane or sugar beet juice into sugar, or by treatment of a sugar solution with acid. It is used in a variety of baking recipes and desserts. It has an appearance similar to honey and is often used as a substitute where honey is unavailable or prohibitively expensive.
It is not to be confused with amber corn syrup or amber refined sugar. Regular molasses, or dark treacle, has both a richer colour and a strong, distinctive flavour.
A common brand used is Lyle Golden Syrup.
