Also known as cinder toffee, yellowman in Ireland or sponge toffee in America, this is a frivolous, bubbly, old-fashioned toffee that is as much fun to make as it is to eat. It reminds me of the old sweet shop at the top of the narrow lane in the village where I grew up. It was a dark, tiny place tucked away in a small row of cottages, as thrillingly tempting as it was scary.
Very few things in life are more pleasurable than a bit of toffee and a glass of nutty, coffeeish sherry.
