Marshmallows/ Marshmallow Fluff

I found this recipe on The Boy Who Bakes blog, but the recipe comes from French Laundry Cookbook. To make marshmallow fluff, use about half the amount of gelatin. The ingredients listed yields over 220g- probably about 300-400g.


180ml cold water
3tbsp gelatin
200g granulated sugar
5tbsp golden syrup
30ml water
tsp salt
¼tsp vanilla extract
icing sugar, for dusting

1. In a mixing bowl with a whisk attachment, pour the cold water and sprinkle over the gelatin.

2. In a small saucepan, heat the sugar, golden syrup and water and and boil for 1 minute.

3. Once the gelatin has been sitting for at least 10 minutes, turn on the mixer and pour the syrup down the side of the bowl, avoiding the whisk. Continue whisking on high speed for 12 minutes and add the salt and vanilla extract- the mixture should fluff up and look like a meringue.

4. Pour the mixture into a pan lined with oiled cling film and leave to set for at least 2 hours before dusting with icing sugar and slicing into cubes.
