Different Types of Sugar
Golden Granulated Golden granulated sugar is ideal for everyday use in tea and coffee, or even for sprinkling over fruit or porridge, while adding in a touch of molasses flavour. It has large crunchy granules, lighter in colour than demerara, with a lighter caramel flavour.
Golden caster sugar is a fine, dry sugar and perfect for everyday bakes. With a gentle caramel tone, golden caster sugar adds a deeper flavour to your sponge cakes and biscuits.
The one for coffee lovers and crumbles, demerara sugar adds a delicious caramelised finish. Larger sugar crystals and a richer caramel flavour makes demerara sugar great for dissolving in coffee or caramelising on top of crumbles and crème brulees.
Excellent in cookies and fudge, this lighter muscovado sugar still has plenty of molasses in it to provide a beautiful caramel colour and taste. With a moist texture, honey colour and fudge flavour, this sugar is perfect to compliment the flavour of your bakes.
The word muscovado means ‘middle of the barrel’: this sugar sits above the sticky molasses sugar, so still has very high molasses content, but is just slightly lighter. Dark muscovado sugar’s deep colour and flavour makes it perfect for chocolate cakes and brownies.
The richest and darkest sugar, this has the highest molasses content and a deep treacle flavour profile. This is perfect for Christmas cake, sticky toffee pudding and BBQ sauces.
Billington’s unrefined sugars are produced at source to lock in the sugar cane’s natural molasses. This gives Billington’s its aroma, depth of flavour and colour. The ethically sourced sugars have made an important difference to Mauritius’s cane-producing communities and are traded fairly. Find out more at www.billingtons.co.uk
