Over on this post I take you through how to make Dark Treacle. I recently managed to source some Lyons Dark Treacle at a reasonable price, so I was able to do a side-by-side taste comparison.
If you’d like to make a Dark Treacle that tastes almost exactly like Lyons, there is one simple substitution. First, you need to make some:
DARK BROWN SUGAR
Weigh the ingredients to come to 1kg / 2.2lb.
Put the granulated sugar in a bowl. Pour the molasses over the top and stir together with a fork.
Continue with the dark treacle making as on the other post, except you need to measure out dark brown sugar instead of white sugar as ingredient 3. You will finish up with a dark treacle that tastes almost exactly like the original.
