Whether it’s a dessert, an afternoon snack, or a treat to enjoy with a cup of tea – cakes are an irresistible sweet treat that will leave you wanting more. But what if we told you that we’ve got the secret ingredient to take your cakes to the next level?
In this article, discover amazing golden syrup cake recipes and learn how Lyle’s Golden Syrup can make your cakes even better.
What does golden syrup do to a cake?
The versatility of Lyle’s Golden Syrup makes it a valuable ingredient for any baking enthusiast looking to create cakes that truly stand out.
Here’s how golden syrup can take your cakes to the next level:
Golden syrup can be a delightful alternative to sugar in cakes. Its high fructose content allows you to use a quarter less golden syrup than the sugar required in the recipe, but you will still achieve the same level of sweetness – allowing you to enjoy a deliciously sweet cake.
Beyond its sweetening powers, golden syrup also plays a crucial role as a binding agent in cakes. It helps to bring the dry ingredients together and create the perfect texture, helping to achieve a light and fluffy sponge.
One of the best aspects of using Lyle’s Golden Syrup is the additional depth of flavour it brings to your cake. Our yummy golden syrup infuses your cake with a gorgeous buttery and caramelised flavour, taking the taste experience to a whole new level.
