Dansukker's Fairtrade Muscovado Sugar is made from sugar cane from Mauritius and comes in two different kinds. The light sugar calls to mind butter toffee, while the dark sugar has hints of liquorice. We have put together a collection of cakes and sweet things where the delicious aromas of our Muscovado Sugar are combined with everything from almonds and other nuts to dark chocolate and cardamom. Serve with freshly-made coffee and enjoy!

Muscovado Sugar is a moist sugar that has a tendency to go lumpy, but part of its charm is that it is not free-flowing. The sugar easily becomes hard if it comes into contact with air. In order to soften it again you can place a piece of apple or potato or a damp cloth in the sugar. Always close the bag tightly and store in a cool place, if necessary in the fridge.
Dark Muscovado Sugar gives interesting taste nuances, especially together with chocolate. Try replacing your usual sugar with dark muscovado sugar in baked products and desserts containing chocolate, e.g. cookies, brownies and truffles.
Light Muscovado Sugar can be used to advantage as a condiment for cooking. It is good for fish and root vegetables. It enhances the taste of bread, cakes, biscuits, desserts, marinades, sauces and preserves.
Baking for Christmas is always something special. This is the one safe haven that always seems to cling to tradition. But perhaps you would like to try something different for a change… you might find yourself a new favourite goodie this year!
