More about Billington's FT Light Brown Sugar

Billington's Fairtrade light brown soft sugar is a versatile baking sugar with a mild caramel flavour, ideal for cakes, puddings and biscuits. This sugar has been simply produced, locking in rather than refining out the natural molasses of the cane sugar, giving it superior depth of flavour and colour to that of refined sugar.

Billington's Fairtrade sugars are sourced from Fairtrade Certified Farms in Africa. Your purchase is invaluable in helping to fund local community development projects.

Store in an airtight container. In certain weather conditions this natural sugar may harden. This is not a sign of deterioration. Just place the sugar in a basin and cover with a damp cloth. Leave overnight and its moistness will return.

Baked Fruit - Mon 16th Jan 2012

Chop the flesh of 1/2 pineapple and 2 mangoes into bite-size cubes and slice 2 bananas. Fold a large sheet of kitchen foil in two and then place prepared fruit in the centre. Sprinkle over the grated zest and juice of 1 lime, 2 tsp light brown sugar and 1/2 tsp mixed spice and fold the foil inward from the corners, so that it envelops the fruit. Seal well and bake in the oven for 15 mins at 200 degrees C/gas 6. Remove from the foil and serve warm in individual bowls with a large dollop of fromage frais or Greek yoghurt.


Billingtons - Sun 2nd Mar 2014

I always but Billington's sugar for baking as it has a distinct rich flavour and the light brown sugar is ideal for Chocolate Brownies

- Fri 21st Feb 2014

Some of the goodness is still left in after they've lightly processed it with this brand so one of the better options when buying sugar and ideal for use in making sweets and cookies with.

- Sat 1st Feb 2014

I add this to my recipe for Vegan chocolate cake.

Lovely - Tue 24th Sep 2013

I find this sugar is best for cooking, whether baked in desserts or in a hot beverage like tea or coffee or hot chocolate, but I don't like it as much as a topper on cold foods like cereal or spinkled on cold desserts as it has an acquired taste in those circumstances. Otherwise, an excellent sugar.

Great for cereals - Mon 2nd Sep 2013

Great to use in my children's cereal. They love it!

Really great for cooking - Thu 6th Dec 2012

I don't often use light brown sugar and am a bit picky about which ones I use because I don't want it to be anything like processed white sugar. I found this one to have a bit more taste than regular brown sugar and especially good for making caramel and toffee. It has a good texture and melts well whilst keeping its sweetness. I used it to make caramelized fruit and toffee apples - perfect warm winter desserts!

Sweetcorn Relish - Tue 7th Aug 2012

Put 4 skinned tomatoes, 1 chopped onion, 1 chopped celery stick, 4 light tbsp brown sugar, 4 tbsp malt vinegar, a good pinch of mustard powder and some salt and pepper in a pan and simmer for 15 mins. Blend 2 tsp cornflour with 2 tbsp water and stir into the sauce along with 200 g drained canned sweetcorn. Bring to the boil, stirring occasionally, and boil until thickened. Leave to cool, then serve with burgers.


Try... - Sat 9th Jun 2012

Try sweet buttered parsnips. Parboil parsnips in skins, peel, slice lengthways then glaze with butter and a little light brown sugar and nutmeg.
