What is Golden Syrup? - Page 5

post #61 of 76

I'm glad you said that Applegum.  I was pretty sure they weren't the same thing but was wondering if I had lost the plot.

 

We had golden syrup dumplings instead of sponge pudding.  The dumplings were simmered in a golden syrup mix on the stove.  Delicious.  I personally like the plain dumplings in the syrup as opposed to the dumplings that also have golden syrup added to them.

Treacle and Golden Syrup aren't the same thing, however colloquially (at least in my family - we're from the South East of UK) 'treacle' means 'Golden Syrup'. For example when I was little we used to have 'dumplings and treacle' for dessert on a Sunday. In fact it was dumplings with golden syrup. Also the recipe Cake Chemistry posted is delicious - have made it many a time for a comfort food hit icon_smile.gif

And while I was raised up north, my mum is a born and bred southerner so I know she didn't mix the two!

If, when you think of treacle, you see this (see pic on right of page)

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Treacle

 

IT IS NOT THE SAME AS GOLDEN SYRUP AND THEY ARE NOT INTERCHANGEABLE.

 

 

This is golden syrup.

It is a similar colour and texture to honey, although doesn't taste the same (in saying that, my recipe for honey cake doesn't use any honey at all...  only golden syrup! LOL)

Sorry Cupcakemaker, I promise not to be having a go; but....

Treacle pudding is made with golden syrup.

The lighter golden coloured treacle is Golden syrup, and comes in a green tin.

Black treacle is dark molasses, and well, black in colour...it comes in a red tin

 

Wikipedia, can be altered/edited  by anyone, and is renowned for being occasionally wrong.  :-D

I'm not talking about black treacle! I specifically said that was different.

That's why it's called treacle pudding/treacle tart even though it doesn't have black treacle in it. It's not called golden syrup tart!

Well now given that I can't find any place that sells non-dark treacle, I believe I owe @cupcakemaker an apology - I guess that what I remembered being called treacle as a child was in fact golden syrup, although I'm still sure they used to sell 'treacle' as well. Maybe it's the fact that they sell golden syrup in a squeeze bottle now that threw me off!

I've seen it in a couple of shops here. I don't really use it but it does look handy!

Sorry CCmaker :oops:  hope I didn't upset you.

 

and yes the squeezy bottle is great for adding it to porridge (oatmeal)

Course not. Takes more than a forum of cake addicts to do that!
