Billington’s – Good Housekeeping Approved

At Baking Mad, we are huge fans of Billington’s products and it turns out we are not alone.    Good Housekeeping Institute have said “Billingtons golden granulated, dark muscovado and light muscovado sugars were all tested on their own and in a variety of recipes and passed the Good Housekeeping Approved standard.”

You may not realise this but by using Billington’s unrefined sugars, your recipes/baking will have the best colour and flavour.  This is because unrefined sugars are simply produced by locking in rather than refining out the natural molasses of the sugar cane.

Why not try our selection of recipes that really show off the rich goeey toffee flavours that unrefined cane sugar brings to your baking.
