Recipes for brown sugar
« on: April 04, 2014, 06:09:18 pm »
Hi everyone. My father in law arrived with a huge bag of both dark and light soft brown sugar, and another of unrefined granulated sugar. I don't have the storage for it all, so thought it was a great excuse to stock the cake tin/ freezer with some yummy things.

Does anyone have any favourite recipes which they'd recommend which use brown sugar?

Caramel Walnut Slice is lovely and uses quite a lot brown sugar.
Or maybe Quick Caramel Custard.

Caroline I use brown sugar a lot. I feel it gives a bit more flavour to things. Anything that is dark I use it. It is lovely in choc chip biscuits, Anzacs, in crumbles, fruit cakes, ( not chocolate cakes ),  I actually use more brown sugar than white.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Thanks so much for the ideas, ladies.  Your tips are very helpful cookie, I'll bear them in mind. I was just wondering whether I could get away with it in chocolate cake, so there's my answer  :)
