Step 1

You will need a 15.5cm diameter x 10.5cm deep (6¼”x4¼”) angel cake tin.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 180C°/Fan160°, 350F°, Gas 4 and put the shelf in the bottom third of the oven.

Step 3

Sift the flour and 95g (3½oz) of the Tate & Lyle Golden Caster Sugar together in a bowl.

Step 4

Next, whisk the egg whites in an electric mixer at high speed for about 1 minute until light and frothy. Add the cream of tartar, salt and vanilla and whisk for 2-3 minutes until soft peaks form.

Step 5

Still whisking, add the rest of the Tate & Lyle Golden Caster Sugar, a dessertspoon at a time to form firm peaks, for about 4 minutes.

Step 6

Sift over one-third of the flour-sugar mixture, and, using a large metal spoon, gently fold in to combine, being careful not to knock out the air. Repeat with the remainder, one-third at a time.

Step 7

Spoon the batter into the cake tin and gently run a dinner knife through the centre of the batter to remove any air pockets. The mixture should come to about 1cm (½”) below the top of the tin.

Step 8

Bake for 40-45 minutes until pale golden and springy and when a fine skewer poked into the centre comes out clean.

Step 9

Remove and invert onto the tin’s cooling legs, and leave to cool for at least an hour.

Step 10

Run a flat-bladed knife around the outer and inner edges of the cake to remove it from the tin. Invert onto a plate and use the knife to remove the cake base, then transfer to completely cool on a wire rack.

Step 11

For the icing, combine the water, Tate & Lyle Golden Caster Sugar and Lyle’s Golden Syrup in a pan and dissolve over a low heat. Brush down the sides with a pastry brush dipped in cold water to get rid of any sugar crystals. Bring to the boil and cook for 5-6 minutes until slightly thickened.

Step 12

Whisk the whites in an electric mixer until soft peaks form, for about 1 minute, then slowly pour on the hot syrup in a thin stream. Continue beating at high speed for 10-12 minutes until very thick and completely col

Step 13

Transfer the cake to a serving plate, spread the icing all over with a palette knife, scatter with the coconut chips and arrange the candles on top, if using. Lightly dust with Tate & Lyle Icing Sugar and serve.

TOP TIP

If you prefer something less sweet just swap some lightly whipped cream for the icing and scatter with blueberries, raspberries or strawberries instead.

#TATE&LYLESUGAR #WELOVEBAKING
Coming this week, our most peachy and irresistible crumble ever. A recipe too good not to share! 👀
Summer jam season... we've waited all year for this! 

Strawberries, raspberries and blackberries beware, because our Tate & Lyle Cane Jam Sugar is poised and ready...

Made using the juice of the sugarcane plant, it's blended with pectin to give homemade jams a sweet, fruity flavour and lush, spreadable texture.

What kind will you make?
The kids would love this one. But it’s for adults only sadly! 😉

A sweet, boozy party starter, you can have your cake and drink it with this citrusy Gin & Tonic Tart!

1 Tart pastry shell
1 Sheet leaf gelatin
1 Large lemon
2 Zest and juice
2 tbsp Gin
125g Tate & Lyle Fairtrade Pure Cane Caster Sugar
2 Large eggs
Plus 1 egg yolk
1tbsp Juniper berries
115g Butter Cubed and softened

Step 1
Place the gelatine sheets into a small bowl with water and set aside. Place the lemon juice, zest, gin, sugar and eggs in a large bowl and whisk to combine. Add the cubed butter and gently crushed juniper berries and place the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water.

Step 2
Allow the butter to melt completely, then cook the curd for about 8- 15 minutes, stirring often, until it has thickened and resembles the consistency of custard. Remove from the heat and add the gelatine, squeezing the water out of it. Stir well and allow the gelatine to melt completely.

Step 3
Strain the curd through the sieve into a large bowl discarding the juniper berries. Cover the surface of the curd directly with the clingfilm to prevent the skin forming and set it aside to cool.

Step 4
Pour the citrus curd into the pastry case and transfer to the fridge for 2-3 hours, allowing it to set.

Step 5
To make the decoration and syrup, place the sugar and tonic water into a medium saucepan over a small heat and allow the sugar to melt. Bring the mixture to simmer, then add the sliced citrus and simmer for 30 more minutes. Remove the citrus and place it on a wire rack to cool. Allow the syrup to cool slightly, then add the gin and cool completely.

Step 6
Decorate the tart with slices of candied fruit and drizzle with some syrup before serving. You can also serve it with a dollop of whipped cream or crème fraiche.
Just a dash mind... You don't want it to end up tasting like a chippy!
You've heard of Tate & Lyle Sugars... but do you know about our Sweetener?

The same flavour, but with far fewer calories. A perfect alternative for when you're looking for a sweeter cuppa!

Get yours from @sainsburys,  @asda  and @ocadouk
If you think we're going to wait until Christmas to see these guys again... you're wrong! 

For stronger molasses flavour and a deliciously chewy texture, our Dark Muscovado puts a lot more personality into your average Gingerbread person.

So don't believe the smiles, because they're actually pretty fiery!
Finally, somewhere that’s as big on doughnuts as you are!
As part of our Trusted By The Best series, we’ve been shining a spotlight on places that make our sugar shine, places just like Leeds’ Doh’hut...

Specialising in big, hearty, British-style doughnuts, they’re a welcome change from American chains - a shop that champions the jammy doughnuts we all grew up on! 

Inspired by the US food truck scene, Doh’hut founder Tom started out making doughnuts in his parent’s kitchen before eventually investing in his own food truck. 

Once on wheels, he quickly became a favourite at many foodie festivals and even won the prestigious British St. Food Awards in 2018! 

The success allowed Tom to set up Doh’hut’s permanent home in his native Leeds, followed by two more bakeries in London (Spitalfields & Exmouth Market)!

Focusing on handmade, fluffy and classic flavours, every doughnut is fried to perfection before being hand-rolled in a sweet layer of Tate & Lyle Sugar.

There’s no bells and whistles here. It’s just getting down to basics to make doughnuts the best they can be! 🏆
