Demerara Sugar

Ever notice that professional baked goods sometimes have a large granular sugar on top... it adds a sweet crunch to the crust of breads, muffins and pastries?

Many home bakers sprinkle their baked goods with sugar… I am no exception…. but I wanted to get that crunch… so I did some research and found that Demerara sugar is used. It’s popular in the UK and is also available here in the states.

So just what is Demerara sugar?

As described on the Florida Crystals website… it’s a large amber colored granule with a hint of molasses inside each crystal. It is crystallized from the initial pressing of 100% pure cane sugar. It is not the same as brown sugar.

Demerara Sugar is readily available in supermarkets in the sugar section. The brand I purchased was Florida Crystal, to locate a retailer that carries their brand go to their website. There are other brands also available.

I hope you found this helpful.
