Golden Syrup  
A amber colored syrup, similar in taste and appearance to honey, that is produced from the extracted sugar cane juice and boiled down to a heavy-fluid texture. When used in cooking, this syrup easily attracts and retains moisture, enabling it to keep baked goods moister for longer periods of time. Often referred to as light treacle in the United Kingdom, golden syrup provides a rich buttery flavor as a topping for ice cream, pancakes, waffles, breads, or as a sweetener ingredient for a variety of baked goods and sauces such as toffee sauce. It is a good substitute for corn syrup.
