homemade golden syrup

ingredients

200g coconut flower sugar
160ml water
25ml freshly squeezed lemon juice

自制转化糖浆

椰子花糖 200克
水 160毫升
鲜榨柠檬汁 25毫升

Directions/做法

IMG_9338– combine both sugar and water in a saucepan. mix well then heat using low-medium heat. DO NOT STIR ANYMORE FROM THIS STAGE
糖和水放入锅中拌匀后以中小火加热。接下来切勿搅拌

IMG_9312when it begins to boil, add in lemon juice. DO NOT STIR
糖浆开始沸腾后加入柠檬汁。不要搅拌

IMG_9313allow mixture to continue boiling under low-medium heat
继续以中小火煮至沸腾

IMG_9314once it boils, turn down to low heat
烧开后立马转小火

IMG_9315use a wet brush to coat the sides of the saucepan to prevent the bubbling syrup from crystallising
continue cooking for AT LEAST 40mins (i cooked mine for 40 mins)
the temperature of the cooked syrup should be 115 degrees C
用一个沾上水的毛刷在锅中边缘划一圈以避免沸腾的糖浆结晶
糖浆继续煮自少40分钟(我家滴煮了 40分钟)
煮好的糖浆最佳温度为 115摄氏度

– allowed syrup to cool, then bottle in airtight container. this is best used after 2 weeks, though (if absolutely necessary) you can use it the next day. store syrup in a cool dry place and it is still good to use the following year
待糖浆冷却后倒入容器密封收藏两周后再用为佳。如急需使用,隔天(勉强)用也行。糖浆收藏在阴凉处,没用完的,明年还能用哈

五仁其实指的是核桃仁、瓜子仁、花生仁、杏仁和黑白芝麻。但您也可随意搭配坚果

– if you do not have gao fen, just measure out glutinous rice flour, and fry accordingly
如家中无糕粉,自己将糯米粉炒熟既可使用

    Hi Victoria,

    You are starting to prepare for mooncake baking already! You are very well organised. Very impressive!!! I think that you are really an ultimate baker because even your golden syrup is also homemade!!!

  • chloe (September 23, 2015)

    Hi Victoria. Sorry to bother you. I like your usage of both coconut sugar and oil as more healthy. What about the taste. Is the coconut taste subtle or overwhelming the lotus. Also can I use this filling for your snowkin mooncake too. Thanks as always. First time embarking on my mooncake adventure, . which is why I am nervous.lol! Chloe.

    • Victoria Bakes (September 23, 2015)

      Hi Chloe, i see you are in a mooncake rush. don\’t be nervous.. always be calm, and be slow when baking. then things will turn out fine, trust me. with re coconut, to be frank, yes, it is the oil that lends it a slightly coconut aroma and taste. so it depends if your family like it that way. can this be used for snowskin? well, i will say yes, though it seem many like custard filling for snowskin. but this is homemade, so do it your way. just ensure your filling is the right consistency (not too dry and crackly ~ don\’t forget, snowskin dough is quite soft), and it will still stand up firm and nice. hope this helps

  • Grace (September 14, 2016)

    Hi Victoria, thank you for kindly sharing this recipe. I’m really glad to find your mung bean filling recipe. I made this today for my first mooncake project. But mine didn’t turn out well. The filling was rather on dry side. Can I put some water and cook it again until I get right consistency? Any suggestions are welcomed. Many thanks to you.

    • Victoria (September 15, 2016)

      Hi, sounds like you may have over fried your filling. Yes try balancing the consistency like the Bailey filling above and go easy on the fire and frying
