So, what is golden syrup?

Golden syrup is a thick, amber-colored sweetener that has a unique toffee-like flavor and aroma. It is made from refining sugar cane or sugar beet juice into a concentrated syrup. Unlike other sweeteners, golden syrup has a distinct viscosity that makes it ideal for baking and cooking. Its golden hue adds an attractive shine to baked goods, and its sticky texture makes it a popular ingredient in desserts like treacle tart and flapjacks. As a natural sweetener, it is an excellent alternative to artificial sweeteners and is often used in vegan and vegetarian recipes.
