Potentially silly question - lolly cake

Do you melt the butter to a liquid before adding condensed milk! Recipes aren't giving enough info.

go_redandblack, no question is a silly question if one isn't sure of something.

To answer your question - yes the butter does need to be completely melted but I GENTLY heat the butter and sweetened condensed milk together, just until the butter is melted.

Hope that helps.:-))

I just do it in a pot, wouldn't worry about the bowl, just keep the heat lowish.

So do I, although IMO go_redandblack's way is not a bad idea if that suits her better and then she mix it all together in the bowl which is what I do in the saucepan.:-))

I just do mine in a pyrex jug in the microwave, on lowest or defrost setting.done in a flash, and can easy pour into the dry ingredients, as sometimes you don't always need the full liquid content. (depends upon the brand of biccies etc).
