- 1 tsp instant coffee (optional)

First lightly grease a 14 x 14 inch cake tin with sunflower oil, and prepare a small bowl of water for the soft ball stage test.
Then, place all the ingredients except cashew nuts and vanilla essence in a large sauce pan. Heat gently and stir until the sugar dissolves, and the mixture boils and bubbles.
Keep under medium flame for 5–10 minutes, stirring constantly until it reaches 120°C on a sugar thermometer. Reduce heat, and then test for soft ball stage: pour a drop of the mixture into water, with your fingers, make it into a ball.
If it does not dissolve, it is in the soft ball stage which means it is ready and you can turn off the fire.
