      Can I use anything instead of light muscovado?

      I really want to make a carrot cake tonight but I don't have any light muscovado, are there any other sugars I can use instead? I don't mind if its not exactly the same, as long as it works and is not yuck

      I'd just used normal caster sugar (unrefined if you've got it or normal white will be fine).

      I would use brown (of any sort) if you have it, if not then white should be OK - am prepared to stand corrected on that though!

      OK thanks, I might do a combo so I can still get the brown sugar taste, wish me luck

      I have used golden caster sugar before in cake ingredients aswell as muscovado for coffee & walnut cakes, down to white caster sugar & all the cakes have come out fine.

      I'd have chucked in any old sugar bar icing (but then I'm the same with my flour - I'm not sure I can see any difference in my cakes when I use SR or plain - obviously adding Baking powder )

      I've used granulated white sugar in place of various types of brown sugar and it has always been fine.

      I use a mixture of brown and white sugar when I'm making my smarties cookies and it seems to work well.

      I'm with Katkinn on the flour thing. I don't bother having SR Flour in my cupboard, waste of time. I use a ratio of 1 tsp baking powder to 1 cup of flour and it all seems to work ok!
