Treacle? Maple Syrup maybe?

I'd say that it would be the same measurement.

So a tablespoon of sugar or a tablespoon of golden syrup.

Oh and I just thought, maybe honey would be a good replacement? Or molasses if you could get it?

I guess the only thing I'm concerned about is that you'd lose moisture replacing sugar with golden syrup so depending on the recipe that could be an issue. And golden syrup does add a certain flavour that refined white sugar probably wouldn't make up for, so perhaps if you're going to go with sugar monaliza, try brown sugar or demerara?

I googled because it's an interesting question and a few sites mentioned other things like, malt syrup, dark corn syrup, corn syrup and sorghum.

What are you making?

Hi moonshadow, thanks a lot for your interest. I want to make a chocolate tarte I saw in Jamie Oliver's program, the naked chef (by the way, what do you think about his book having the same title). Brown sugar is a good idea. Here, to make oriental desserts we usually use a white syrup made by a combination of sugar, water and lemon juice. Could it works ?

How about corn syrup? Or would that be too sweet?

I will look for the corn syrup and I'll give it a try.

Do you ever see Lyle's Golden Syrup? It's a good one, but also find it hard to get, although I see it's made in the US, maybe that's why.

The only places I ever see it are the health food stores .. go figure!

I think corn syrup is one of those items that's kind of hard to replace with something else, if you want the exact texture and gooey'ness and flavour, but corn syrup for golden syrup should work, also honey .. but might be a little runnier and sweeter.

I began using real maple syrup instead of molasses in my whole wheat bread recipe and all my friends are nuts over it. It only requires a tablespoon so the cost is not an issue. Plus we have lots of maple syrup makers in the area who sell at our local farmers market. Golden syrup, corn syrup and other processed sweeteners, not for me thanks. Hope you find a substitute that works. Me, I would use real maple syrup, it doesn't sound like you use much each time.

It's a 'non-maple" syrup. OH!!! I just remembered that my granddad used King Syrup--I think it's still available..No maple taste, and it's fairly thick. Maybe that would work better than the corn syrup!
