5 Tips on using the right type of #sugar in your baking.

With such a choice of #sugars, it’s difficult to decide which one is best.

They say caster #sugar should be used for sponge cakes, soft brown dark or light is good for ginger and fruitcakes.

Only use demerara if the ingredients you are using have been heated before baking as its courser and requires dissolving before cooking.

Other sweeteners include treacle which is good for chocolate, ginger and fruitcake. However, it’s not as sweet as the golden syrup which is nicely mixed with spices, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg.

Honey is an excellent sweetener but you should be careful as it is sweeter than #sugar. Using honey can also keep your cakes fresher for longer.

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.
