Like Golden Syrup, Treacle is ideal for creating moist, flavoursome cakes and biscuits. Treacle has a darker colour and a stronger flavour to Golden Syrup due to its molasses content which makes it seem not quite so sweet.
You can use it to replace Golden Syrup in many recipes but it is often used alongside Golden Syrup in recipes such as in our Old English Gingerbread.
If you are using a UK recipe you might find they refer to treacle or dark treacle. Often they are referring to golden syrup when they say treacle, with our Chelsea Treacle being more in line with their dark treacle.
