Golden syrup

What is golden syrup? About the ingredient golden syrup. Including 31 recipes with golden syrup, and where to find it.


Golden syrup is a pale treacle. It is a thick, amber-colored form of inverted sugar syrup, made in the process of refining sugar cane juice into sugar, or by treatment of a sugar solution with acid.

It is used in a variety of baking recipes and desserts. It has an appearance similar to honey, and is often used as a substitute for people who do not eat honey. It can also be used as a substitute for corn syrup.

Molasses or dark treacle have a richer colour than golden syrup, and a stronger, slightly bitter flavour.
