A Week at Nana and Granddad's

Sorry it's been so long guys, with exams and then going to nana and granddad's, it's been pretty hectic! Of course, I didn't miss an opportunity to do some baking with my nana! I love all her baking, but I especially love her tan square. It's just so caramelly and good! It's probably quite a New Zealand thing-condensed milk and golden syrup mixed together! But it tastes good to anyone, so definitely give it a go. It was really fun baking with nana, and she had some good tips which was cool.

Tan Square

150g butter
200g sugar
250g plain flour, sifted
1t vanilla essence

50g butter
1 tin (400g) condensed milk
2T golden syrup

100g chocolate bits

Preheat oven to 180°C and grease a sponge roll tin. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy, then add vanilla. Mix in the sifted flour. Put two thirds of the mixture into the tin and press in firmly, covering the whole surface. Cover the remaining third and put in the fridge. Spread the cooled filling over the base and take the rest of the mixture out of the fridge to crumble over the top. Sprinkle the chocolate bits over at the same time. Bake about 40-45 minutes but do not let the top become too brown.

Place butter, condensed milk and golden syrup into a heatproof bowl and heat in the microwave, carefully, until the butter is melted. Mix together.

Written down the bottom of my recipe, which I will share with all of you, is lots of love, Nana. Make this with love. :)
