ISO recipes with Golden syrup

I've seen Lyle's Golden Syrup but have not bought it yet , wondering if it is worth the purchase. I don't want to use it once or twice and it sits on the shelf for ages. I have googled for recipes especially at the Lyle's site. Just wondered if anyone here used the product.

Being raised on the stuff, best friends family was from England and I met her at 6 years old. It was a staple in her/their home. It's been in mine ever since and wouldn't be without it. I've posted several times on it's uses, but for me, mostly I love it on home made white sandwich bread with peanut butter. Again, raised on it that way. I don't care how long mine sits in the kitchen store, I enjoy just knowing it's there, with it's little sister, Treacle.

I just bought a jar of the golden syrup at Wegman's. I didn't see the Treacle there. The syrup is expensive , $4.99 , hubby was not happy about it. I told him I have to try it before I die and besides he would benefit too when I make things with it.

My husband (from England), likes golden syrup, though we don't buy it very often. I think he used it over cereal, but I think it would be good on pancakes, crepes, waffles. It reminds me of a sweet corn syrup.

We use it for many puddings - you could use it to make a syrup pudding. We also use it to flavour porridge instead of sugar. This our favourite recipe for British flapjacks (like a cake)

Special Flapjacks
Ingredients

315g / 10oz Margarine
4 tbsp golden syrup
185g / 6oz demerara sugar
250g / 8oz oats
250g / 8oz self raising flour
250g / 8oz dried fruit



Method

1 Heat the oven to 190C / 375 F / Gas Mark 5. Grease the baking tin

2 Melt the margarine, syrup and sugar together in a saucepan. Allow to cool a little

3 Add the oats, self-raising flour and dried fruit.

4 Pour into the tray and bake for 20-25 minutes

5 Cut up when cold!

LC, we used to have a lovely member of DC from Scotland, Ishbel. Do a search for her recipes - I think she used golden syrup in a lot of her baked goodies.

We use Golden Syrup for:

Treacle tarts
Over rice pudding (and then topped with Carnation milk - yummy!)
Anzac biscuits
Golden Syrup puddings
and I think you use it in a Sticky Date pudding but wouldn't swear to it

but check out this link:

Oh Bilby, I forgot about treacle tart. That is a definite goody - I have a recipe if you want one lady cook.

Alix, thanks for taking the font marks out of my recipe.
