  1. Tip the sugar, butter, milk, and evaporated milk into a heavy-based pan and heat gently, stirring frequently, until the sugar has dissolved.

So if you don’t add vanilla, it won’t taste like vanilla, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it will taste bad, have the wrong consistency or behave differently when cooked and cooled.
