Re: Where can I get Goldern syrup!

And let's not forget good old Cornish thunder and lightning! This actually preceded the traditional Cream Tea (with scones and strawberry jam) and is simply thickly sliced fresh, crusty white bread, with a generous dollop of clotted cream with golden syrup drizzled over it

Actually, the closest thing to Lyle's in the US would be Karo light or a light molasses (or often a combination of both as I've often done when left without) though the Karo is a corn product, not a cane product. Ironically, Lyle's is now owned by an American company.

However, in a country that doesn't do corn syrup or molasses outside of very small niche markets, it's a tough one to find a substitute for. I never could figure this particular lack out since many of my mother's German baking recipes used cane syrups (and it's so easy to find in Germany and parts north such as the Nordic countries though those are often beetroot syrups) in some vein or another, particularly the holiday treats. It's around, but you have to really work at finding it. It's the UK equivalent of the much vaunted brown sugar.

Jelmoli foodhall.

@ Papa Goose: Denner sells "Rosinenbrötchen" - pretty much the same as teacakes.

Thunder and Lightning is wonderful stuff. The closest I've managed to get to it here has been warm fresh white bread, Double crème de la Gruyère from Migros and either maple syrup or pomegranate syrup.

Re: Where can I get Goldern syrup!

Well I found Golden syrup! I found it online at britshop.ch
Expensive but it's worth it as there really is not a substitute.

Now I can make some flapjacks!

Thanks for helping everyone.

Re: Where can I get Goldern syrup!

I used to use Karo light to make treacle tarts and they always came out well.... also if the treacle is really expensive maybe do a half and half to reduce the cost.....
