Light in Flavour

When you want a delicate sweetness in your baking, using White Sugar or Caster Sugar can provide a subtle sweetness that enhances the other flavours without overpowering them.

Fruity

Using fruit can add a natural, fruity sweetness to baking, creating a refreshing, light flavour or adding sweet tartness. White Sugar or Caster Sugar in baking, allows the flavour of the fruit to shine and Jam Setting Sugar preserves the taste of fruit in vibrant jams.

Nutty

Coconut Sugar bring a subtle nuttiness to baked goods, elevating the taste with a mild, natural sweetness and pairs beautifully with tropical flavours.

Spiced

Using sugars with spices like cinnamon, ginger, licorice or chai can lend a warm, aromatic sweetness to baking.

Caramel

Utilising brown sugars or incorporating caramelised sugar syrups creates a richer, deeper flavor profile, adding a hint of caramel or toffee-like taste.

Chocolate

Chocolate adds a decadent richness to baked goods with its deep cocoa flavour, making it perfect for indulgent treats. Try adding a deep flavoured Brown Sugar to the mix for enhanced chocolate flavour.
