Sponge Candy Will Not Stay Fluffy
My Sponge Candy will not stay fluffy, just settles down and gets hard. Please help!!!
I used 1 cup regular sugar, 4 tbsp of light corn syrup, and 2 tsp of baking soda sifted into 1 tbsp of water.
I heated up the sugar and syrup slowly to a boil, then let it cook for about ten minutes until it was a light brown color. I put in the soda and it puffed up and all, but then when I poured it into my pyrex Pam-sprayed pan, it stayed up then slumped and was barely aerated.
It still tasted good but it is extra hard and different then the normal kind. I have tried many times and failed miserably, please help!
I haven't made this particular type of sponge candy myself, but there are some other folks who have been discussing making Sponge Candy and Angel Food Candy (which sounds like the same type of thing).
Pop over and read their discussions on making angel food candy
and making sponge candy
,then ask questions there. Perhaps they can give you some tips.
