Billington’s fairtrade demerara sugar is ideal for sweetening coffee and adding crunch to biscuits and crumbles. The sugar takes its name from its place of origin - Demerara, Guyana - however the raw cane sugar is now produced in Jamaica and Mauritius.
The golden crystals are typically used to add a crunch to baked goods, so try using this sugar in the following ways:
- Sprinkle on top of crème brûlées for a caramelised topping
- Mix through oats for a crunchy texture to crumbles
- Add to shortbread before baking for a golden colour
