Irrelevant. This subject - like the CHF 120K minimum salary and flushing the toilet at night - forms part of the DNA of EF. Without brown sugar posts the forum would instantly disappear up its own search box.
Agreed.
Its integral to the fabric of our space-time continuum.




and, OH bakes ALOT.

It is.

But Demerara sugar is not brown sugar. Brown sugar contains molasses. It's not difficult to understand - it has been mentioned 36,427 times on this thread already.

I'm off to lie down before I go and shoot someone.
It's clear the excess of sugar has created all this tension and violence in you.

Just an important detail, will you shoot someone after using brown or white sugar? it's for the new racist thread I will create after the incident, I would not want the future debate to be biased, based on incorrect information and assumptions...
By the way, now that you mention it, where can we buy sugar with molasses in Switzerland, is this possible?

Just curious, how many of those asking about brown sugar are really into baking?
I don't bake at all. But I'll let you into a little secret: you haven't lived till you've encountered a little nugget of soft brown sugar, surrounded by an aureole of molten treacly syrup, nestled in the middle of your winter's morning bowl of steaming oatmeal porridge.

Where can I buy brown sugar here?

When I need brown sugar, I make the stuff. Regular old sugar and molasses mixed for a while. Works just fine. Truth be told though, I don't use as much as I used - I don't bake cookies very often.

No toll house cookies for a very long time.

So last night I made it Globus right before closing time (wasn’t aware they close earlier now) and I was able to get my muscovado! Never been so excited finding sugar! Thanks guys! I’ve never seen it before and you’re right, the consistency is very different. Good to know COOP vitality has it too.

Re: Where can I buy brown sugar here?

After 4 weeks in Switzerland I was starting to wonder myself where or if I could find brown sugar.


Today I happened across this in my local Migros and then coincidentally found this thread.



Hope this might help others in need.

Re: Where can I buy brown sugar here?

I use brown sugar for baking and also stewing fruit, until lockdown I used to bring soft muscavado back from my trips to Scotland. Recently I saw an old Rick Stein series on India where he went to see jaggery powder being made, so I bought some from an Asian supermarket in Kleinbasel and it's just as good. It came in a big plastic jar so is easy to store.
