Lyle's Golden Syrup subsititution
I'm making a pecan pie for tomorrow, and the recipe I have calls for 1/2 cup of Lyle's Golden Syrup, as well as 3/4 cup of dark or light corn syrup. I can't find Lyle's anywhere, and am wondering if I can just use more of the corn syrup? or would something else be better?
Yup, it's not really the same flavor, but if you can't find it, you can't find it. If you use a little dark corn syrup with mostly light, you may get a reasonable approximation of flavor and color, but just use what you got.
I prefer cane syrup over corn if you can find that at this short notice.
Growing up abroad we used Lyle's for everything. Imagine my dismay, as a child returning to the good old US of A, when my Mom couldn't find Lyle's. The closest she came to replicating Lyle's was taking light corn syrup and adding a little honey to "broaden" the flavor profile of the corn syrup. I remember she used a very light honey.
