Gluten and Dairy Free Scottish Tablet

Hello Everyone

Being Scottish myself I’m glad to have finally managed to make a dairy free version of tablet.  When I was a little girl (before the days of a packed in pancreas and I was able to eat milk) I tired making tablet and it never set properly.

I’ve done a bit of research into the tips and tricks of making good tablet.  I think where I was going wrong years ago was not beating or whisking it after I cooked it.  My next hurdle to get over was trying to find appropriate dairy free alternatives to make a good tablet.

I made this tablet using Nature’s Charm Coconut Condensed Milk, caster sugar, dairy free soya milk and Pure dairy free spread.
